Man United has just made one of the most successful signings of the summer of 2022, and it’s all thanks to the stealthy maneuvers that Arsenal has been making in the transfer market.
For Manchester United, head coach Erik ten Hag spent more than 200 million pounds during the summer transfer window of 2022 to sign six new players to contracts with the club.
In the case of goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who was brought back as a backup for David de Gea, the remaining five recruits of Manchester United are all major stars in coach Ten Hag’s team. The only exception to this is Dubravka, who was brought back as a backup for David de Gea.
Just a few short months after becoming official members of the Red Devils, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Antony each left a significant personal impression on the team. It is tough to select the name of Manchester United that is the most outstanding up to this point in time. But in terms of the fighting spirit of “.d.evi.l’s b.l.o.o.d,” midfielder Lisandro Martinez deserves to be the most typical star of Man United. He deserves to be the most usual star of Man United.
The Argentine “butcher” immediately established himself as a solid “stone” in front of David de Gea’s goal, despite initial concerns regarding his diminutive height of 1m75.
It is possible that many Manchester United fans will be reminded of the image of “steel warrior” Nemanja Vidic from back in the day when they observe the ferocious and aggressive defensive approach displayed by Lisandro Martinez.
Lisandro Martinez may not have been a Man United man, but that comes as a s/u/r/p/r/ise. The 24-year-old potential midfielder almost signed with Arsenal in the summer of 2022. Arsenal, not Manchester United, made the first official offer to Ajax for Lisandro Martinez, at a cost of £34 million.
Arsenal’s proactive action was a factor in Man U. changing its transfer strategy.
Ajax’s agile defender Jurrien Timber was an early target for Old Trafford re-signing coach Ten Hag.
When Arsenal showed interest in the player in 1998, Man Utd swung to Lisandro Martinez to hurry up the sale.
Erik ten Hag, coach of Arsenal, disclosed in an interview with Voetbal International that Lisandro Martinez personally called him to inform him of the likelihood that he would be leaving Ajax and joining Arsenal:
“Martinez was the one that proactively sought to depart from Ajax. If we hadn’t been able to sign him, he might have gone to Arsenal instead. Because Martinez was the most important player for Arsenal at that time.
“Martinez once gave me a call and stated, “Boss, listen, I’m going to leave Ajax sooner or later.” I could sign for Arsenal on my own, but if you want me to go to Man United, that’s where I’ll be!
“Because of this, I reasoned that I couldn’t allow things to get out of control, and the management team at Manchester United shared this sentiment. In the end, we gave the attempt to close the transfer a go, and it was successful. went fine.”
In the end, it was Manchester United and not Arsenal that were successful in their pursuit to sign Lisandro Martinez. The Red Devils were required to make a payment to Ajax in the amount of approximately £ 50 million in order for coach Ten Hag to be able to bring his favourite Argentinian youngster to Old Trafford.
Lisandro Martinez, playing in a new uniform for Manchester United, rapidly stole the hearts of the club’s fans thanks to his extraordinary talent and fiercely competitive personality, much like Nemanja Vidic.
The Red Half of Manchester’s defense has seen tremendous improvement as a result of Man United’s decision to combine the services of central defenders Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. Man United now has a pair of central defenders who are the stuff of dreams.
However, without the entrance of archrivals Arsenal, things may have gone very differently for both Manchester United and Lisandro Martinez. The Red Devils were in da/n/g/e/r of losing the “butcher” to the Gunners, according to Coach Ten Hag. Manchester United must thank Arsenal for the £ 50 million transfer of Nemanja Vidic’s heir.
