Manchester United could miss out on signing Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez as Barcelona could raise enough funds to keep Frenkie de Jong

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag may be frustrated in the transfer market as Arsenal look to sign Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

United’s new manager knows Martínez well from their time together in the Netherlands and reports have linked the Old Trafford side with a move to the Argentine. But Premier League rivals Arsenal would target the centre-back in a bid to beat United to his signature.

This comes as the Red Devils suffered a blow to their hopes of signing Frenkie de Jong this summer, with his club, Barcelona, ​​approving a transfer that could provide the cash-strapped team with a much-needed cash injection. And Ten Hag’s coaching reshuffle continued as he was forced to move members of his team backstage.

Here are the latest Manchester United headlines from Mirror Football.

Ten Hag’s Frustration
Arsenal can beat Manchester United with the signing of Ajax centre-back Lisandro Martinez.

United’s Premier League rivals are already busy in the summer transfer market, with the Old Trafford team still without new players. But Martinez is reportedly a player Ten Hag had targeted, with the Dutchman keen to bring in a quick defender capable of defending one-on-one.

Losing one more player would spell a frustrating start to the summer transfer window for Ten Hag as he begins to overhaul his squad.

De Jong transfer scam
Manchester United have suffered a significant blow to their hopes of signing Frenkie de Jong this summer.

Barcelona’s financial difficulties have led them to consider selling the Dutch midfielder, but the Spanish team has already voted in favor of selling future merchandising and television rights from Barca. This allows current president Joan Laporta to sell 25% of the club’s broadcasting rights in La Liga and 49.9% of Barça’s official licensing and merchandising subsidiary.

The move could provide a £600m cash injection – meaning Barcelona may not necessarily have to part ways with De Jong.

Training reorganization
Erik ten Hag had to continue his reshuffle behind the scenes after Manchester United’s highly rated head of player development and manager Justin Cochrane was robbed by Brentford.

Cochrane will take on a Premier League first-team role, leading United to have to confirm a new manager setup. Mark Dempsey, who was appointed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2020, will take charge of the Under-23s next season, while Travis Binnion, United’s U18 head coach, will take over Cochrane’s previous role.

It’s the latest move as new manager Erik ten Hag begins his revolution at Manchester United.
