TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea, Arsenal & Man Utd Battle It Out For The “New Xavi”
Premiership trio Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are all monitoring Spanish sensation Javi Martinez.
The Athletic Bilbao playermaker was considered one of the best players at the European Under-21 Championship, and was linked with Europe’s elite after a number of elegant displays.
The classy 22-year old has been likened to Spanish team-mate Xavi with his passing ability and movement of the ball and could be heading to the Premiership this summer.
Chelsea have identified the midfielder as an alternative playmaker if the club fail to land Luka Modric or Javier Pastore. Manchester United are also tracking the youngster and believe the Spanish maestro has the ability to succeed as the long term replacement for the retired United legend Paul Scholes.
While Arsenal are considering a number of options if Cesc Fabregas does leave for Barcelona this summer and Martinez has been shortlisted as a replacement for the want-away midfielder.
