Report: Manchester United are ready to complete the signing of £40 million star

Manchester United and Arsenal have been after Lisandro Martinez for quite some time and the latest reports are positive for the Old Trafford faithful.

According to The Mirror, Man Utd are ready to sign the Argentine international from Ajax in a deal worth £40million.

According to a reputable British news outlet, Huntelaar, the top negotiator for the Dutch side, being in the UK over the weekend means that an agreement is imminent.

The 24-year-old central defender will reportedly join Manchester United before the Premier League team leaves on its preseason trip on July 8, according to all parties concerned.

The La Albiceleste center-back started 23 games in the league for the Dutch giants and helped them keep 17 clean sheets (conceded just 7 goals).

The Johan Cruijff ArenA outfit have been the best team in the Netherlands for a long time and therefore, performing for them does not guarantee that Martinez will immediately make an impact for the Man Utd side, who were poor at the back last season.
