Spanish youngster interesting Old Trafford manager.
Manchester United are apparently setting their sights on talented young midfielder Javi Martinez. Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to bring in new central midfield options and has earmarked a move for the promising Spanish Under 21 international who has been likened to a young Xabi Alonso.
The towering Atletico Bilbao man has been targeted by many of Europe’s elite after impressing many with his mature performances in La Liga and after four seasons in the Bilbao first team he appears ready to make a move up the footballing ladder. Many had predicted Martinez would move to either Spanish giants Barcelona or Real Madrid but neither side has made a concrete offer as yet.
Old Trafford boss Ferguson is known to be an admirer of the battling midfielder and may well be ready to meet the Basque clubs valuation of around £18m for the 21 year old.
