Arsenal and Tottenham are also interested in the forward…
Porto striker Jackson Martinez has revealed that he is going to leave the club in the summer, reports the Daily Express.
The 28-year-old has been in great form this season, scoring 21 goals in 25 appearances so far. Also, in the last three campaigns he has netted on 85 occasions. This has caught the eye of Manchester United, who have sent scouts to watch the Colombian according to the Daily Mail. Liverpool, Tottenham, and Arsenal have also been linked to the player.
Martinez doesn’t have any idea where he will end up after a transfer, but has decided that he is definitely going to depart the Portuguese giants. He also believes that the club will accept his wishes and sell him.
He said, “I am clear that next summer will surely be my departure for a new club. In the Porto players are valued and gain experience. But for now I have my mind set on defending this shirt with all the professionalism.”
He continued, “I can not say a league or team in particular. There is much speculation and rumours always come around my transfer.To tell you the truth, I do not know which teams are asking for my services because I ask my agent not talk to me about these possibilities, because I need to focus in Porto.
“There will come the summer and find my way out. England, Italy? Maybe, but for now I do not know, hopefully everything is given well.”
All three interested sides are in need of a striker. Louis van Gaal and Brendan Rodgers are ruing the signings of Radamel Falcao and Mario Balotelli, while Arsene Wenger has needed a goalscorer since the departure of Robin van Persie.
