Manchester United are close to agreeing a deal with Ajax for defender Lisandro Martinez.
Sky Sports News understands the structure of the payments in the deal are under discussion, with the defender wanting to join Erik Ten Hag’s squad this summer.
United have previously stated they will not overpay for the Ajax player. 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 and while the Gunners’ playing style – along with the prospect of playing for Mikel Arteta – appealed to Martinez, he appears to have selected Old Trafford.
