Man United ‘lining up’ offer for Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez

Man United ‘lining up’ offer for Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez

Manchester United have recently been credited with an interest in Aston Villa goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez.

Emiliano Martinez impressing with Aston Villa

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

And since making the switch to the Midlands, some Arsenal fans are probably questioning why their club allowed the Argentine to depart.

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

And Martinez has been a key reason why, helping improve Villa’s defensive record a great deal.

At the time of writing, Dean Smith’s side have conceded just 28 times in the English top-flight this campaign, with only Chelsea and soon-to-be Premier League champions, Manchester City, conceding less.

And now, after an impressive start to life with Villa, Martinez appears to have attracted interest from one of the Premier League’s top teams.

According to the aforementioned report from Football Insider, Man United are lining up a ‘blockbuster’ offer for Martinez this summer.

The report adds that the Red Devils are planning a major overhaul of their keeping ranks and Martinez is said to be top of their target list.

Said news came in the same week that Duncan Castles reported that Man United are looking at the possibility of trying to move David de Gea out and are in discussions with AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma about coming as a free agent.
