“We have had informal talks with people from Real,” Blanco began. “We aren’t ruling out giving him to them on loan, but with a high option to buy.”
According to the report, Martinez would likely join Real’s Castilla team.
Should the teenager move to the Bernabeu, he would follow a long tradition of Argentine players looking to make their name with the Blancos.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Gonzalo Higuain, Fernando Redondo and Angel Di Maria are just some of the Albiceleste stars to have represented the Spanish giants.
