Arnau Martínez is now in the spotlight, thanks to the interest from top teams like Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona, as per Fichajes.net.
The young Spanish defender is now attracting attention from these top teams due to his impressive performance for Girona.
Playing mainly as a right back, Arnau Martínez is one of the key players at Girona and one of the driving forces behind the team’s competitiveness in the Spanish top flight.
In the summer, he came close to securing a move to Atletico Madrid. However, the deal fell through, and he remained at Girona.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City are watching
Barcelona are said to be interested in the youngster. But the club’s priority remains to permanently sign João Cancelo, who is on loan from Manchester City.
However, anything could happen in the next couple of months as negotiations between Man City and Barcelona continue over the contract of Joao Cancelo. But if a deal falls through, Barcelona could consider Arnau Martínez as an alternative.
Real Madrid is considering the young defender as concerns grow over the age of veteran defender Dani Carvajal. The Los Blancos are already looking for a replacement, and the Spaniard fits perfectly.
Manchester City, on the other hand, are also looking for a replacement for João Cancelo. There are indications the Portuguese would not remain at the club and needs to play elsewhere.
Manchester City could move for Arnau Martínez as they look for a suitable replacement for the out-of-four Portuguese defender.
