The Arsenal already offered to pay the 60 million euros that has Martín Zubimendi like clause in the Real Sociedad. To this stage is the one who confronts the FC Barcelona in his intention to follow with the mediocampista in his diary for the next market, one in which besides it could arrive more competition from the own football groins or from the Bundesliga.

The Bayern Munich also has reports that interest him of the player, although it has been much more reserved for having other priorities in the staff. This is not the case of a Barça that surely needs to reinforce this zone of the field of compulsory way in summer, more still if Sergio Busquets finishes deciding not renewing his agreement and from Italy follow bidding by Kessié.

The player of the Real is one of the main aims of the Arsenal to reinforce his centre of the field for the next season. Mikel Arteta has asked to the club londinense an effort by the donostiarra and the player would be opened to give the jump to the Premier, afterwards that in winter declined the operation by his decision to complete this season in the project of Bailiff.

The reality is that Zubimendi would fit perfectly with the profile that looks for the technician of the 'gunners', as well as in which want to Xavi, there the maximum dilemma. With alone 24 years the investment of 60 'kilos' does not seem a madness, but the Barcelona team is not in conditions to mortgage all or almost all his budget in an alone operation and with the 'fair play' financial of LaLiga complicating so much the things.

The another possible threat

A rival that could arise in the career is the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola. The mancunianos surely will lose to Gündogan, the one who does not have intention to renew, and the profile of Zubimendi is very similar to the that Rodri has developed with so much efficiency. Besides, Kalvin Phillips arrived this summer and has not been able to win his place in the eleven in any moment of the season.
