Calendar of FC Barcelona

The continuity of Iñigo Martínez in the FC Barcelona no longer gives by seated. Although the central would prefer to remain and fulfil his agreement, that extends until 30 June 2025, in the club would have plans very distinct. The possibility that it do his cases is on the table and can be the player 'sacrificed' after the irruption of Pau Cubarsí, that aims to be followed adding chevrons in the first team. The Basque has the label of transferible of face to the summer.

In case that, finally, leave of the City Condal, his destination could be in the capital of Spain. An information of 'Relief' suggests that the Athletic of Madrid is slope of the situation of Martínez, place understand that it can fit in the plans of Diego Pablo Simeone and can be an important reinforcement for the defence, especially in front of the possible exit of Mario Beautiful. His agreement wins on 30 June and everything seems to indicate to that will leave of the Cívitas Metropolitan.

For the rojiblancos results vital the contracting of, at least, two head offices for the campaign 2024/2025. Although Gabriel Paulista landed in the market of wintry signings, consider vital that can add two reinforcements that allow to the Argentinian trainer have alternatives in front of the low constants of Giménez and the doubts on the future of Savic. The option of Iñigo Martínez results more than beneficial for the team... And it can be an only opportunity for the Barça.

The goodbye of Iñigo can be 'nail' for the Barça

And it is that the Barcelona have 'pending' the negotiation with the Athletic of Madrid by Joao Félix. His cession finalises the next 30 June and are forced to achieve a formula that allow that the attacker remain a year more in similar conditions. The 'colchoneros' bet by his definite sale this summer, because they want to recover part of the investment of 127 million euros that did by him in 2019, but have begun to see his loan to the Barça "like a lower evil".

If the pieces of the puzzle fit, because still there is a lot for defining in both sides, can open the door to a 'barter' of players. The Catalans can be to the doors to achieve a formula that benefit them to do with the services, of permanent form, of the Portuguese. If they can include to Iñigo in the operation would be, surely, abaratando costs to arrive to an agreement with the Athletic.

The operation will cook to slow fire

In any case, as they explain from Relief, is an operation that still is not cooking. The Barça has not finished to define if the Basque has 'hollow' in the team of face to the next season -would depend on what happen with Ronald Araújo- and from Madrid are taking the things with a lot of calm. Only they have 'safe' that have the obligation to find a road so that Joao Félix abandon definitively the rows of the club.
