Manchester United on Wednesday completed the signing of Argentina defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax for a fee that could reach nearly £57 million.

The 24-year-old, who won two Eredivisie titles under new United boss Erik ten Hag in Amsterdam, has signed a contract until 2027 at Old Trafford, with the option of a further 12 months.

Ajax said they had agreed to a transfer fee of 57.37 million euros with United.

Including variables, that amount could increase to 67.37 million euros.

“It’s an honour to join this great football club,” the centre-back told United’s website.
