LaLiga champions Barcelona have confirmed Inigo Martinez will join the club on a free transfer from Athletic Club.
Barcelona sign Inigo Martinez
Barca have tracked Martinez for several months since it became obvious he would not be signing a contract extension and his signing represents shrewd business by the Catalan giants.
A statement from Barcelona read: "An agreement has been reached between FC Barcelona and Inigo Martinez for the player to join the Club after his contract with Athletic Club ended.
"The player is set to sign a two-year deal that ends on June 30, 2025, with the release clause set at 400 million euro. "The Club will provide further details about Inigo Martinez's presentation as a new first team player in due course."
Martinez will become Barcelona's second signing of the summer window following the free transfer of Ilkay Gundogan from Manchester City.
