MU ‘rewards’ Lisandro Martinez
The Sun said that coach Erik ten Hag suggested MU raise Lisandro Martinez’s salary as a reward for an impressive first season at Old Trafford.
Despite having to go through the end of the season because of a serious injury, the Argentine midfielder really brought spirit, strength and changed the Red Devils defense.
He and Raphael Varane made a good pair of central defenders, making Erik ten Hag extremely confident.

However, the salary increase for Lisandro Martinez will not be done immediately, but will only take place when the transfer of MU is completed, with a new owner to be determined.
