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.
