Arnau Martínez had a correct match on Saturday against FC Barcelona in Montilivi and is establishing himself as one of the options to reinforce the blaugrana right lane in summer. The 19-year-old player would count 20 'kilos', a reasonable value
The FC Barcelona left of Girona with three points in the pocket that turn him into virtual champion of winter and with a clearer idea on the potential of Arnau Martínez. The right-handed side had a correct party the Saturday in Montilivi, lidiando in the first stretch of the meeting with Ousmane Dembélé and afterwards with the tandem Gavi-Jordi Alba in the complement.
Although the goal of the Barça arrived by his band, the one of Premià of Dalt no desentonó in front of a hard challenge. The defender was admonished to 15 minutes for the end and participated in the envión offensive of the venues in the final stretch, where the fault of puntería and the timely interventions of Marc-André ter Stegen allowed to sustain the zero and the triumph. At the end, Arnau completed his eighth consecutive party like titling in League, where adds a pair of goals and an assistance in 16 apparitions.
In this sense, the Barça does not lose him of sight like possible alternative for the right side in summer. The imminent exit of Héctor Bellerín will leave to the team without natural right-handed sides and the player of 19 years gathers the necessary conditions to have the 'OK' of the directive and of the technical body in the relation price-quality. Formed in the inferior of the club, Martínez knows well the 'DNA Barça' and would not have problems of adaptation.
The defender was left free in 2016, completing his training between L'Hospitalet and Girona. With agreement until June of 2025, sor clause of rescission is of 20 million euros, a payable figure for the managerial culé, although the mediation of the Manchester City in the operation could complicate the things. The ones of Pep Guardiola are owners of his index card and everything aims to that, because of his good walk in LaLiga, the Catalan technician will try to retain him.
Xavi recognises the quality of Arnau
In the previous of the crash in front of the Girona, Xavi had taken advantage of for elogiar the conditions of Arnau. "It is very good side. Very very gifted, strong in the duel, with a lot of personality. It is very interesting, yes", recognised the míster of Terrassa. The Athletic of Madrid also wants him, by which if in Barcelona really have intentions of 'fish him' will have to activate the prompt negotiations.
"If I go back, it will be in the first team. Obviously it would like me go back to the Barça", had commented the defender in an interview with 'TV3' in past November. Of this way, Martínez left clear that will not return to the club to play with the filial, descartando a similar case to the of Pablo Tower. Considering what paid by Nelson Semedo (35 'kilos') and Sergiño Dest (€21m), the price of Arnau does not leave to seem a 'bargain' in these times.
