“I want to thank Ajax and their fans for all the support they gave me. I had an unbelievable time there but feel the moment is right to test myself in another environment. Now I am at the perfect club to do this.”
United’s football director John Murtough also explained the club’s decision to sign the 23-year-old. “Lisandro is an outstanding player who will bring further quality and experience to Erik’s squad.
“We are delighted that he has chosen to join Manchester United and we are looking forward to seeing him develop further and help the team achieve the success we are aiming for.”
United’s next official friendly is against Atletico Madrid in Oslo on Saturday. They then face Rayo Vallecano at home a day later.
