The statement added: “The deal is expected to be finalized after the player undergoes a medical examination and finalizes the arrangements for his transfer to play in England.”

And press releases previously showed that Manchester United had contracted Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez for 55 million euros until June 2027.

And Fabrizio Romano, a journalist for the “Sky Sport” network, posted on his official page on Twitter that Martinez, who signed a five-year contract, is undergoing a medical examination in Manchester before completing visa procedures, and that the defender will not go to Australia travel, where Manchester’s last two friendlies are played.
