A cult favorite at Manchester United, Lisandro Martinez is apparently receiving interest from Real Madrid.
Real Madrid is apparently interested in Lisandro Martinez, despite the fact that he has only recently joined Manchester United.
Real are reportedly interested in signing the 25-year-old to a La Liga contract, according to Defensa Central. Although Madrid already has David Alaba, Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, and Nacho on their roster, Martinez is reportedly a top target for Los Blancos as they look to expand their options.
The Argentina international and Raphael Varane have developed a strong defensive connection for United. This season, Martinez has started each of United’s 14 Premier League games.
Erik ten Hag reportedly instructed United to sign Cody Gakpo in January to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, according to ESPN Netherlands.
The 23-year-old has performed admirably for PSV Eindhoven thus far this year, and he is presently demonstrating his abilities on the international stage with the Netherlands at the World Cup.
According to the report, Rafael Leao of AC Milan, who has not yet reached a new contract agreement with the Italian club, is one of the potential replacements on United’s shortlist.
Gakpo and Leao have both scored goals so far in this year’s World Cup, with the former doing so in both of his team’s matches, and the latter scoring the vital third in Portugal’s victory over Ghana.
