Manchester United are just a ‘matter of hours’ away from officially announcing their third summer signing.
That’s according to leading transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who has claimed that Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez will be unveiled as the Red Devils’ latest signing later on Sunday.
Martinez, 24, is set to be reunited with former manager Erik ten Hag after United and Ajax reached an agreement worth £46m.

The flamboyant South American is expected to join up with his new teammates soon and is likely to play a big part in ten Hag’s opening upcoming Premier League campaign.
Writing on Sunday morning in his exclusive CaughtOffside SubStack column, Romano, when speaking about United’s plan to unveil Martinez, said: “Lisandro Martinez’s official announcement is a matter of hours. Once the VISA is received, communications from Man United will arrive.
“The club documents are already signed, the final cost is €55m with add-ons. Lisandro is in Manchester with his agents ready to sign the contract.”
