Calendar of FC Barcelona

Íñigo Martínez has gone back to be one of the most likely names to arrive to the Camp Nou next summer. After the retreat of Gerard Hammered, the Barcelona club thought in his signing again and now 'Sport' signals that the FC Barcelona has restarted the contacts with his surroundings so that the defender turn into culé like free footballer the next 1 July.

The club blaugrana already even tried ficharal central from the Athletic, although the Basque team resisted during all the summer, understanding that it could arrive to an agreement of renewal sometime. Now the situation is distinct with the arrival of the 2023 and with the possibility that the Barça negotiated freely with the player from the past 1 January.

The information signals that the surroundings of the defender has explained that they have not received a new formal offer of the own Athletic to renew him. The club of Bilbao keeps a hermetismo total in his sportive area and only the sportive director of the team, Mikel González, recognised that "Íñigo and his surroundings know that the Athletic wants to have he for the future".

In all this stage Iñigo seems to have left clear that is expecting a concrete offer of the Barça, his destination preferred to continue with his career. Xavi has put to the player like a priority to reinforce his defence when understanding that has a left-handed profile that is missing in the position of head office of team culé, although Marcos Alonso could solve partially this need in the case that it renew.

A moment important

By his part, the Barcelona sportive area thinks that the operation could carry out in spite of the economic complications that will have LaLiga in the next market of summer. Íñigo is a big opportunity of market for a club that recently has left clear that it wants to reinforce with free players that have a present or future of the level of the Barça.
