Barcelona are still in pursuit of Inigo Martinez for the upcoming season, according to reports from ‘Sport’. The centre-back is expected to sign a three-year deal with the club, which has been a priority for Barcelona to strengthen their defence.

Xavi is expected to give his approval for the signing of the Athletic Bilbao defender for next season, after the move was unsuccessful in the previous transfer window.

It has been reported that Martinez knows Barcelona is still looking to sign a striker and right-back, but he has been assured that he is part of their plans and that the club will be able to sign three new players for La Liga.

There have been rumors that Martinez’s wife has already started looking for homes in Barcelona and its suburbs, anticipating the agreement to be sealed between the club and the soon-to-be free agent.

In the current season, Martinez has played 15 games for Athletic Bilbao and scored his first goal against Valladolid in a 1-3 victory for the San Mames side.
