Barcelona is not done with their transfer despite the signing of Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, and Jules Kounde and they are keen on adding Athletic Bilbao defender Inigo Martinez to the team.
Barcelona has signalled their interest in signing the €80M rated La Liga defender and the Camp Nou directors have officially submitted their bid to negotiate a potential signing.
Martinez was signed from Real Sociedad in January of 2018 following the departure of Aymeric Laporte to Manchester City, the defender has less than one year in his deal with a buy-out clause of €80M.
Despite the signing of Jules Kounde Barcelona still want the 31-year-old defender at the Camp Nou as the signing of the French defender will not affect the potential move for the former Real Sociedad defender.
The 31-year-old defender wants a taste of Champions League football an opportunity Barcelona will offer him if he joins Xavi Hernandez’s men, though he is happy at his present club he knows this might be the last chance to move to a club like Barcelona and play in the Champions League.
The athletic Bilbao board is not an easy side to deal with when it comes to negotiating a move for their player, they maintain a tough stance on negotiating any deal.
