The English Tabloid, The Daily Star on Sunday, are claiming that Man City are ready to splash out £25 Million for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez.

Apparently they have already watched the player seven times and if that is anything near the truth then one can take it that City are very serious in their intention to land the midfielder.

Martinez will apparently cost a cool £25 Million, if that is the case then it will restrict City in further purchases, the day’s of them spending huge amounts are over, they simply would be unable to comply with the Uefa fair play rules otherwise.

Whether Martinez becomes City’s big summer signing is open to debate, however they do seem serious and it will be interesting to see further developments with this particular rumour.
