After his chef wished him goodbye, Manchester United fans are convinced that Lisandro Martinez will be playing for their club next season.
Since arriving at Old Trafford, Erik Ten Hag has set his sights on returning the former greats to their glory days. Therefore, besides stamping his authority on the side, he’s hunted far and wide to bring in the best possible players. However, having won three Eredivisie titles with Ajax, it makes sense to draft directly from the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
The Dutch manager believes that Martinez could have a pivotal impact at United next season. His ability to play in various positions and composure on the ball make him a worthy signing. De Jong won two Dutch titles and received the Ajax player of the year award in the 2021-22 season. Consequently, he’ll undoubtedly bring a winner’s mindset to a club that desperately needs it. With this in mind, Ten Hag has bowed to his old club’s demands to try and get the move over the line.
But despite no official confirmation of the signing, supporters have already whipped out their party paraphernalia.
According to his chef, Lisandro Martinez will join Manchester United
According to esteemed journalist Fabrizo Ramano, the club have agreed to a deal for the 24-year-old worth €55 million. But that’s not the only reason why supporters are so convinced of the transfer.
On July 15, the player’s personal chef took to Instagram to say his goodbyes. Kabir Kohli posted a picture of the pair together with an ominous caption.
He wrote: “Farewell dinner”, adding: “Man Utd fans – treat him well.”
In addition, Kohli tweeted: “Despite my best attempts at trying to convince Lisandro Martinez to stay for another year at Ajax, unfortunately, it seems like he’s off to Man Utd.
“Man Utd fans – take care of him. He’s awesome!”
Therefore, it seems certain that United will announce their latest signing in the near future.
