Athletic set to sign Inigo Martinez

Marca is reporting that Athletic Club are set to finalise the deal for Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez.

Los Leones stepped up their interest in the 26-year-old when it became clear that Aymeric Laporte would be joining Man City in a mega money deal.

Athletic have since triggered a €32 million release clause and all that’s left is to agree personal terms with Martinez.

Despite making over 200 La Liga appearances for La Real, the centre-back doesn’t seem to mind joining their arch rivals, and he is expected to sign a long-term deal at San Mames in the coming days.

Martinez has been on the radar of both Barcelona and Real Madrid for quite some time, but the El Clasico rivals never made their interest concrete.
