Manchester United have announced that Lisandro Martínez has joined from Ajax.

Lisandro Martínez is set to become a Manchester United player. The club announced on Sunday that an agreement has been reached and is only pending the medicals and visa papers.

Ajax have announced that it’s a fee of €57.37 million and that it can increase to €67.37 million through variables. Martínez is now the 8th Argentine to sign for Manchester United:

Juan Sebastián Verón
Gabriel Heinze
Carlos Tevez
Sergio Romero
Marcos Rojo
Ángel Di María
Alejandro Garnacho
Lisandro Martínez

He is not expected to be joining Manchester United on their pre-season tour in Australia. Per César Luis Merlo, once the paperwork has been completed, he will stay in England and train with Eriksen.


  1. Scaloni must count Licha now in the playing 11 for the WC…Licha will show the man u fans, pundits and Scaloni how good is he…🔥🔥 Romero , Licha pair will be a damn hot in the WC ✌️✌️

  2. Enzo Fernandez had a good game vs Fulham today. He played better than the previous game and it’s obvious from his passes and movements that he is quickly developing good chemistry with his teammates. I don’t think he will be part of the WC squad, but if his performance of the first part of the season is solid then he may have a small chance flying to Qatar. All the best to him!

  3. Good news is Lisandro plays for his Ten Hag who trusts him.

    Bad news: he may play alongside Harry Maguire (hopefully it’s Varane). Maguire has youtube clips of how bad he is.

  4. Dybala to Roma? He will be their key player there. Better Roma than Inter if he wants to play more games.

    Fabrizio Romano
    AS Roma had a meeting today with Paulo Dybala’s agents. Opening bid on the table, trying to convince the player – Dybala who will make final decision on future soon. 🇦🇷 #transfers

    Tiago Pinto and José Mourinho, now trying – Dybala’s still available as free agent

      • How far can Napoli or go in Champions league. If they are extremely lucky 2nd round, if they end up 3rd in the group then they will play in Europa. Roma is also already in Europa. Not much of a difference between Napoli and Roma.

  5. All ready media are hyping Lesandro… I hope he just do his regular Work…. Romero, ota,lisandro, pezzella… Looks strong

  6. Honestly I do not like how Man u Pressurize him into signing. I was hoping he will wait till after world cup to change. I just hope this will help him grow more cuz Man U is an extremely toxic club, just look at what they turned Rojo to from an aspiring good defender to whatever he is now. God do not let them spoil our boy!

  7. how good is Martín Ojeda ? another amazing season 7 key passes in a game another goal and assit against lanus

    • I watched him last season (but not this current season) and the kid was impressive, a Dimaria-esque RW with pace, creativity and goals.
      Is he a world beater? Well it’s honestly impossible to tell with the primera because a player can have a breakout season then crap the bed the season after.
      I’m glad to know that he’s still doing well because generally speaking in the primera, if a player does VERY well for 2 seasons straight (think Dominguez, Enzo Fernandez, Julian Alvarez, LIcha Martinez and few others) then said player is the real deal.

  8. Strangely most if not all Argentine defenders have performed admirably in the Epl. Zabaleta, Coloccini, Heinze was voted the player of the season for Man Utd, in his first season but a serious injury at the start of the second season completely ruined his Man Utd career and eventually left for Real after Man U refused to sell him to Liverpool.
    Demichelis was not surprisingly made fun of by the English “Fundits” but Demichelis had the last laugh as breezed through the season.
    Otamendi definitely made his mark.
    Ramiro Funes Mori had a splendid first season for Everton but again a series of injuries beginning from the start of the second season ruined his Everton days.

    Lisandro will win over Utd fans and will be a big player in the Epl.

  9. Lisandro joining manu is great news for Argentina. If he performs well pressure will be huge on scaloni to start him ahead of otamendi in wc. Manchester media hype is huge. They will create pressure on scaloni surely

  10. This is the best news of the day. He deserved that price tag. Fully earned. And that price tag and brand of Man U will put some pressure to start him, which is required I think.

    Though Ota has played very well, he is a ticking time bomb and was super lucky to survive a red card on Copa final. Won’t happen every day. Licha Cuti partnership can go long way. Same mindset of a butcher, skilled in different ways. I salivate at the prospect of that partnership.

    Vamos. Go and kill it in the theater of dreams Licha.

    • Man I’m so happy this move in so many ways.
      We need our players playing the highest level big clubs in big leagues, back in May when man utd announced ten Hag is thier new manager I had hoped that he will bring Lisandro at utd with him and that just happen
      I’m very exciting in the new season.

  11. The thing I like most about licha moving To utd is most of epl fans and pundits have doubt about him which is good bcz they will be surprised how good he is. plus epl is not as physical as it used be.

    • very true. he has the physical attribute. there are many man u fans already gushing about his passing ranges, which is one of the best in the world.

  12. Lo Celso will end up at Villareal. The thing is Villareal is waiting until Spurs lower their price. Lo Celso is not in Conte’s plan, Villareal knows that.

    At some point, Spurs will let him go for lower price or even loan. Why pay 30 millions when you can pay less?

    • Tbh Kounde is very very good but I don’t think he better than Lisandro in fact licha is better for some aspect like versatility ball playing centre back but one thing I’m sure of is Lisandro will automatically better once he hit the ground running at utd plus epl fans and pundits will start hype him too.

    • Easily Licha. two years back Kounde was a hot prospect, but he did not develop as rapidly as expected. Licha on the other hand is killing it. and if he succeeds at united, British media will go crazy about him. Just like its happening with Cuti. Both Cuti and Licha have similar mentality.

    • Kounde is a classy CB and it’s close between the two of ’em but if I had a gun pointed at me I’d say our boy Licha gets the edge due to his ball playing skills, which are well above the oridinary for a CB, hence why he played all 6 CL games as a DM two seasons ago.

  13. It’s good news for Argentina because he is real monster defence,defensive mid and attacking minded player.Now we will see what’s happening at United our player adjust with there system.
