New United boss Erik Ten Hag worked with the versatile stopper in the Eredivisie side last season.

Central defensive partner Jurrien Timber was understood to be Ten Hag's number one choice when moving to Old Trafford.

The Dutch international dealt his former boss a transfer blow last week when hinting he would remain at Ajax to avoid a 'shake-up' at this stage of his career.

Martinez was the subject of a failed bid from Arsenal last week too.

Mikel Arteta's men are on the lookout for reinforcements but saw their £25million attempt knocked back by Ajax.

And now United could hijack any move from the North Londoners, with Betfair seeing them as leaders in the chase.

They have Man Utd as 7/4 faves, with Arsenal next best at 9/2.

Martinez – who was in the Argentina squad that won the Copa America – has title-winning and Champions League experience in Amsterdam.

He was recently an unused substitute as Lionel Messi and Co beat Italy 3-0 in La Finalissima at Wembley.

Messi's former club are third in the betting at 5/1.

Cash-strapped Barcelona are in a summer of transition and will need to offload some of their stars to be able to spend big again this summer.

While Messi's current club PSG are 12/1 to help bolster their strong squad as they go in search of European glory.
