Treble winners, Bayern Munich are not ready to stop Javi Martinez in securing a move back to La Liga as he is linked with Real Sociedad.
All the Bundesliga giant want is to ensure they get the right price for the Spaniard.
This development shows that Martinez’s departure is just a matter of finalizing financial details and getting the right fee for him.
According to Bild, Martinez is on the verge of agreeing on a transfer to Anoeta from the Allianz Arena. Martinez had joined the Bavarians in 2012 from Athletic Bilbao for around 40-million Euros, which was a club and league record transfer fee at the time.
Bild site Spanish newspaper “La Razon” reports that all Bayern wants is at least 15-million Euros for the 31-year-old utility player.
According to reports, a deal was already done, but that turned out to be inaccurate. Sociedad, which had some days ago secured the service of David Silva on a free transfer from Manchester City were offering 10-million Euros for Martinez.
But the figure could very well change in the near future since personal terms have reportedly already been agreed upon. With one year left on his current deal, Bayern would want to quickly cash in on him as he has been involved in a bit-part role recently in the team.
Former Bayern winger, Franck Ribery had tried to convince Martinez to join him at Fiorentina in Serie A, but the Spaniard had politely turned that offer down.
Thiago Alcantara could follow Javi Martinez
Meanwhile, Thiuago Alcantara might have played his last game for the club. The Spaniard has refused to sign a contract extension with the club and they are not eady to lose him for a cheap price.
He is being linked with Liverpool. 30 Million Euros might be enough to take him away from the club so as to allow him to explore the Premier League.
In another development, Bayern could be bolstering their midfield by signing Inter Milan midfielder, Marcelo Brozovic.
After winning the Champions League that secured a historic treble for the club, Bayern is now in the transfer market to bolster their squad. The midfield of the club needs reinforcement due to multiple departures this season.
Fcinternews.it reports that Die Roten has contacted Inter Milan to explore a deal to sign Marcelo Brozovic. Inter might want to sell the midfielder, who is an important player for Antonio Conte, to raise funds for new arrivals.
Brozovic is likely to be a direct replacement for Thiago Alcantara.
In a related development, Bayern could do a double deal with the Nerazzurri. This could involve Brozovic and Ivan Perisic, who had on a successful season at the Allianz Arena.
The European champions are also expected to negotiate with the Italian giants for Perisic in the coming weeks. Having settled into the team, the German club is eager to sign him permanently.
However, the stumbling block to deal could be the fee which the German champions are not ready to pay.
