Man Utd finalising Martinez deal with Ajax | Defender wants Old Trafford move

Manchester United are finalising a deal to sign Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

Sky Sports News understands talks are at an advanced stage with the structure of the payments for the deal under discussion, while Martinez's personal terms are not expected to be a problem.

It is thought Ajax want £42.3m (€50m) for the 24-year-old, who previously played for United boss Ten Hag at the Amsterdam side.

United have previously stated they will not overpay for Martinez. Sky Sports News revealed earlier this month that Martinez has informed Dutch club Ajax of his desire to move to the Premier League.

Arsenal were also interested in the Argentina international but have conceded defeat in their pursuit, while the Gunners' playing style - along with the prospect of playing for Mikel Arteta - appealed to Martinez, he has chosen to move to Old Trafford.
