According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal had also pushed hard in an attempt to sign the Argentina international in a £38m deal, but the London club failed to meet Ajax’s asking price.
The versatile centre-back has been a top target of Erik ten Hag, which is no wonder when the club are in need of both a centre-back and defensive midfielder.
Hopefully, It is only a matter of time before the Argentine is revealed as the Red Devil’s second summer signing, and the 24-year-old can join his new teammates in Australia for pre-season.
