Man Utd 'launch stunning £42m Lisandro Martinez transfer bid after agreeing personal terms with defender and Antony' | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly launched a stunning £42million bid to sign Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

Boss Erik ten Hag is relying on familiar faces to kick-start his re-build of Man Utd.


The Dutchman has already signed Feyenoord ace Tyrell Malacia and he's closing in on a deal to sign Christian Eriksen.

Frenkie de Jong also continues being linked with a reunion with Ten Hag.

And according to Telegraaf, United have submitted a bid for Ajax ace Martinez, who Ten Hag has grown fond of.

The pair worked together for three years from 2019 to the summer of 2022, winning two Eredivisie titles in that period.

United's bid is believed to be worth £42m and Ajax are weighing up whether they can afford to turn such an offer down.

Ten Hag would also like to bring Ajax ace Antony to Old Trafford.

The Brazilian has a much higher price tag than team-mate Martinez, with Ajax hoping to collect closer to £70m.

However, according to the Daily Record, United have agreed personal terms with BOTH players which could weaken Ajax's negotiating hand.
