Silence reigns in Bilbao on the future of Iñigo Martínez
The interest of FC Barcelona by Iñigo Martínez began a few weeks ago. The sporting management went into a state of alert knowing that Jules Koundé was very close to concluding his signing by Chelsea, what made the contacts with Athletic Bilbao intensified to find out the value they priced at the central. However, the whole movement cooled over the days until it remained at an impasse.
The Barcelonan managed to snatch it from Koundé to the “blues” and since then there has been no news on the possible landing of the Basque. In fact, from the very heart of the institution affirmed to the newspaper ‘Sportive World’ that conversations did not exist let alone an offeralthough other means ensured that the culés had to pay up to 15 million euros for their traspaso.
However, at the Palais d’Ibaigane silence reigns with all this situation. Someone from the bilbaína entity has spoken about a possible movement. Nor the own footballer, who hasn’t trained more with the rest of the squad due to some knee trouble. Incidentally, the latest video released by LaLiga’s ‘Half Day’ served to heighten the uncertainty, since the defender was one of the few Athletic players who did not appear in the same.
Some portals claim that Barcelona are still following his steps and keeping the door open in case the footballer takes a step forward, although the club denies any reports. “As of now, he has made no approximation, much less a formal offer. We haven’t contacted Athletic again.”pointed out from the culé entity.
What if it remains clear that he is Iñigo would not see with blaugrana’s ‘evil eyes’ dress although he neither claimed nor denied at all. His link expires in 2023 and seems that a renewal is far from arriving with the blanquirrojo photo. Ondaorra’s knows this could be the last chance to sign a big deal with an elite clubwhat comes out of the table served for him to land as a free agent next summer.
