A statement from United said: “Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Argentine international defender Lisandro Martinez, subject to medical, to player terms being finalised, and to UK visa requirements.”

ESPN previously reported the 24-year-old was keen on a move to the Premier League with United his favoured destination. Sources told ESPN that a breakthrough had been made and that Martinez rejected interest from Arsenal.

Martinez can play in defence and in midfield, which are both areas of the squad that Ten Hag is keen to strengthen. Martinez made 118 appearances for the Dutch champions after joining the club in 2019. He becomes Ten Hag’s third signing of the summer after Tyrell Malacia joined from Feyenoord and Christian Eriksen moved to Old Trafford after spending the second half of last season at Brentford.

United remain sure the Netherlands international is open to joining the club, but according to sources, his representatives are still trying to encourage Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea to join the bidding.

De Jong would rather join a Champions League club if he has to leave Barcelona, although his preference is to remain at Camp Nou despite the LaLiga side’s insistence he has to move to help the club solve their financial issues. There is also an issue of wages that total more than €20m that Barcelona owe De Jong.

Women’s Euro 2022 to include water breaks after extreme heat warning – sources

UEFA will implement cooling breaks for the players and match officials during the final round of group games at Women’s Euro 2022, sources have told ESPN, after the UK government announced a red warning for extreme heat — the highest alert level — over the next 48 hours in England.

Temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius have been forecast on Monday and Tuesday — the highest-ever recorded in England was 38.7C in 2019 — and the government has warned that the extreme heat could “lead to serious illness or danger to life not limited to those most vulnerable.”

Italy are due to face Belgium in Manchester in temperatures predicted to be around 35C, while the other Group D fixture between Iceland and France is forecast to be played at temperatures of approximately 36C in Rotherham.

Sources have told ESPN that the match referee has the authority to unilaterally implement a drinks and cooling break should they regard the temperatures to be excessive.

But sources also said that a UEFA delegate will take a temperature check on the pitch during the pre-match warm-up and, if the level is 32C or higher, cooling breaks must be implemented by the officials during the game.

No games are scheduled for Tuesday, which is predicted to see the highest temperatures, while the unusually hot conditions are forecast to subside before the quarterfinals begin with host nation England playing Spain in Brighton on Wednesday.
