He has a strong relationship Erik ten Hag and the two have spoken about the transfer recently.
Lisandro won the Dutch league with Ten Hag last season and he was named Ajax’s player of the year before his exit
The 23-year-old defender has won three league titles in the Netherlands since his move to the Eredivisie in 2019.
However, he is not the tallest centre-back and has a height of 5ft 9ins.
Despite the short height, Lisandro can read the game well, and is very good in one-on-one situations.
The Argentine is also versatile as he can play at centre-back, left-back and as a defensive midfielder.
United currently have six senior defenders and have already put some players like Axel Tuanzebe, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly on the transfer list.
