Martín adds 1 goal and 3 assistances in 33 parties (2.785 minutes) in what it goes of season with the team 'txuri urdin', performance that cost him his presence in the first announcement of Luis de la Fuente like seleccionador Spanish.

The Barça will not have easy the signing of Zubimendi

Further to have a clause of accessible rescission, in Barcelona know that the negotiations by Zubimendi will be complicated.

De la Fuente trusts that, beside Rodri, the donostiarra can lidiar with the pressure to replace to 'Busi' in 'The Red'. The parties in front of Norway and Scotland will be his first proof of fire to international level.
