SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL MADRID EYES BILBAO JAVI MARTINEZ

REAL MADRID EYES BILBAO JAVI MARTINEZ

ATHLETIC CLUB BILBAO player JAVIER MARTINEZ has become the object of desire for REAL MADRID Coach Jose Mourinho. According to Spanish radio 'Onda Cero', Real Madrid has contacted with Athletic to negotiate the transfer of the player who has a buyout clause of 40M€. Real Madrid aims to reduce that amount & has offered 30M€, that's the limit set by Jos√© Mourinho for the signing of any player. However Madrid , it seems, has a competitor in Bayern Munich with their Football Director Christian Nerlinger seen a few days ago in the city Bilbao to apparently negotiate also with the Basque Club for Martinez.

This is not the first time that rumours arise about the interest of Real Madrid for Martinez. Seasons back it was said that President Florentino Perez asked about the possibility in a Directives lunch between Clubs. But the relations between both Clubs has undergone a "rough patch" since then especially after Real Madrid said no to the final of the Spanish Cup being played this year at the "Santiago Bernabeu" (home of Real Madrid). All this & the continued historical "political differences" makes things just that bit more complex in any negotiation process between Real Madrid & Atletic Club.



The adavantage that the Madrid Club has, said by media, is that Javi Martinez has given his OK to the move from Bilbao, & Real Madrid has asked the player to "force" things locally to smooth the path. Bilbao says that the release clause is 40€ plus taxes which is 55M€, a price that for the moment creates a significant wall.


Stay tuned in coming months.
