Manchester United: BBC journalist reveals encouraging Lisandro Martinez transfer news -Manchester United News

BBC journalist Fraser Fletcher has now revealed some encouraging transfer news for Erik ten Hag and Manchester United involving Lisandro Martinez.

The Lowdown: Ten Hag ‘pushing’

It has been reported that Ten Hag is ‘pushing‘ for the Red Devils to bring Martinez to Old Trafford, a player he knows very well having coached him at Ajax.

However, Arsenal are reportedly still in the race for his signature, and so both Premier League outfits could enter a bidding war to determine who is able to get the deal done.

The Latest: Martinez admission

Taking to Twitter, Fletcher,  has revealed that Martinez sees Ten Hag and the Premier League as the ‘perfect combination for him’, and that the player side of the deal is ‘easy’ for MUFC, although the Gunners are ‘still keen’ and ‘trying to pounce’:

“I am told Martinez sees Ten Hag and Premier League as “perfect combination for him”. He wants best solution found by clubs as soon as possible. Player side of deal easy for #MUFC. Arsenal still keen as well and trying to pounce.”

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Encouraging

It is certainly encouraging to hear that Martinez is seemingly very open to joining United to work under Ten Hag once again.

His 7.6 average match rating in the Eredivisie last season was higher than what any United player managed in the Premier League, and he also won more aerial duels and averaged more interceptions, passes and long balls per game in their respective divisions. [WhoScored]

Nonetheless, Martinez would be an upgrade on what Ten Hag already has at his disposal, and so this is a deal that needs to be signed off as soon as possible.
