Report: Manchester City want Real Sociedad's Inigo Martinez

A report claims that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants to bring Real Sociedad centre-back Inigo Martinez to the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez this summer, and the Citizens are prepared to pay the Spaniard's £27m release clause.

Martinez, 26, came through the youth system at Sociedad, and the centre-back has made 223 appearances for his Basque club since debuting during the 2011-12 campaign.

According to Marca, Man City boss Pep Guardiola is a long-term admirer of the Spaniard, who is also said to be attracting interest from Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan.

The report claims that Guardiola is wary of being dragged into a bidding war for the defender, and will therefore agree to pay Martinez's full £27m release clause with a view to securing his signature ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

Martinez, who is a four-time Spain international, scored three times and provided two assists in 34 La Liga appearances for Sociedad during the 2017-18 campaign.
