Ajax are reportedly looking to get their Lisandro Martinez revenge on Manchester United by pinching the Red Devils’ promising youngster Ethan Laird.
The 13-time Premier League champions completed the signing of Martinez earlier this week as the Argentina international followed Ajax’s former manager Erik ten Hag to Old Trafford.
Ajax won the Eredivisie title under Ten Hag last season but now face a huge rebuilding project after losing a whole host of stars this summer.
Martinez will arguably be the Dutch club’s most notable loss after he made the decision to head to Manchester, where he will battle with the likes of Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane for a regular starting place in the backline unless he is utilised as a defensive midfielder.
The Red Devils will reportedly pay the Dutch club over £55million for the ace and have agreed to give him a five-year contract and weekly wages of £120,000.
