According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have made an ‘official proposal’ to sign Ajax star Lisandro Martinez ahead of Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Tyrell Malacia of Feyenoord seemed to be in danger from the Red Devils’ approach. The 22-year-old is scheduled to have his first physical today, and it is said that United and he had reached an agreement on a £13 million transfer price.

A deal appeared to be in jeopardy because of a problem with the player’s agent, but it now appears like Malacia will be Erik ten Hag‘s first signing at Old Trafford, and United are already pursuing the signing of another Eredivisie superstar.
On Saturday, Fabrizio Romano revealed on Twitter that Martinez has received a “formal proposal” from United that, in the reporter’s opinion, is “better than Arsenal‘s.”
The player is poised to urge Ajax to allow him his desired move to the Premier League, and the Red Devils are “pushing to agree on personal terms,” according to Romano, who also stated that Ten Hag is the “important factor” in the chance that the Argentine follows his old manager to Old Trafford.
