Martinez determined for success after completing Man Utd move

Lisandro Martinez has outlined his determination to be part of a successful team at Manchester United after completing his move to Old Trafford.

Martinez has completed a £55m move to the Premier League from Ajax, after Erik ten Hag raided his former side to sign the Argentina international.


The 24-year-old made 120 appearances across three seasons with Ajax and won consecutive Eredivisie titles under Ten Hag’s management. After completing his move to the Red Devils, Martinez has now outlined his desire to continue winning trophies and believes he is as the ‘perfect club’ to achieve his ambitions.

“It’s an honour to join this great football club,” he told the club website. “I’ve worked so hard to get to this moment and, now that I’m here, I’m going to push myself even further.

“I’ve been lucky enough to be part of successful teams in my career and that’s what I want to continue at Manchester United. There will be a lot of work to get to that moment, but I firmly believe that, under this manager and coaches, and together with my new team-mates, we can do it.

“I want to thank Ajax and their fans for all the support they gave me. I had an unbelievable time there but feel the moment is right to test myself in another environment. Now I am at the perfect club to do this.”
