Aston Villa braced for ‘massive’ offer for Man United-linked Emiliano Martinez

Aston Villa braced for ‘massive’ offer for Man United-linked Emiliano Martinez

Martinez impressing with Aston Villa

After impressing with Arsenal following the restart of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, Emi Martinez was sold to Aston Villa in September of 2020 for a fee believed to be around £17m.

And since his switch to the Midlands, Gunners fans have been left to ponder why their club allowed the Argentine to depart at all.

Villa have looked a much-improved side this season, after barely staving off relegation last time out.

And Martinez has been a key reason why, aiding the Villans’ defensive record a great deal.

In 30 league outings this season, the shot-stopper has managed a very impressive 14 clean sheets.

Aston Villa expecting Martinez interest

Despite his stint at Villa Park having not yet reached a year, though, it appears that Dean Smith and co. are now bracing for interest in their no.1.

Manchester United were credited with an interest in Martinez earlier this year.

And though his current contract at Villa Park runs until the summer of 2024, Football Insider have reported on Tuesday that the Lions are braced for a massive summer offer for Martinez, with Man United’s interest again highlighted.

No potential fee is mentioned in the report, but, when taking into account just how impressive the 28-year-old has been since departing Arsenal, it is safe to assume that it would take a fairly large sum for Villa to part with Martinez, just a year after bringing him in.
