Javi Martinez Open To Premier League Move Following Manchester United Link


Athletic Bilbao and world cup winner Javi Martinez has suggested that he would be interested in a future move to the Premier League after saying that the physical side of the game in England suits him.

Martinez has been linked with both Manchester clubs in recent months having burst onto the scene back in 2006 as a 17 year-old-kid.

Martinez’s Athletic Bilbao will face one of the teams that are said to be tracking him – Manchester United in the Europa League last 16 first leg on Thursday, he went on to say that he is enjoying life in La Liga but claims that the Premier League could be more suitable for his combative style.

Javi Martinez told – “Maybe my football is quite physical, it’s certainly more oriented to being physical.

“But I think that is also a valid style here in Spain. Here there are many players who play with my same characteristics.

“Perhaps the football in England is more suitable but I am doing very well here so that’s not a problem for me.”

He then talked about the transfer rumours, he said -  “I try not to pay any attention to all the things that I see or read. In the end these are just rumors of newspapers and the media.

“The reality is that as yet nothing clear has come my way. No club has made an offer to me or to my agent and so I prefer not to go round in circles with this.

“I am just concentrating now on the end part of the season and just focusing on giving 100 per cent of my thinking and energy to the club.”

Ahead of the clash at Old Trafford on Thursday, the 23-year-old also stated his surprise at United’s failure to reach the knockout phase of the Champions League following their failure to claim a draw in their final group game against Basel.

“I really was surprised at United’s exit. You can’t imagine a club of the caliber of Manchester United not getting through the group stages,” he said.

“This is a club that always aspires to be there till the end. To be in the final or the semi-finals, that is always what they have done and so it’s strange to see that they didn’t get through this year.”
