Red Devils duel Gunners for Lisandro

Manchester United have reportedly joined Arsenal in the race for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

The Gunners are rumoured to have had a £25million bid rejected for the Argentine ace.

And now the Red Devils have emerged as rivals to Arsenal for Martinez’s signature.

Boss Erik ten Hag has been asked to be kept in the loop with Martinez’s situation, according Sky Sports.

Martinez has spent the last three seasons at Ajax, winning two Dutch titles under Ten Hag.

And now it seems the United gaffer is keen on a reunion with the 24-year-old centre-back.

The Red Devils struggled at the back last season, with skipper Harry Maguire often coming under-fire for his performances.

Raphael Varane also struggled for consistency in an injury-hit first campaign at Old Trafford.

United are yet to make a transfer this summer, but Ten Hag appears open to linking up with Martinez once again.

However, the left-footed defender is also a target for Mikel Arteta, and understood to be interested by the idea of working under the Spaniard.
