Barcelona plan to put Iñigo Martínez up for sale

FC Barcelona are preparing to make a significant move in the upcoming summer transfer window, as they plan to put Iñigo Martínez up for sale, according to RAC1. This decision is due to the Catalan club’s inability to comply with the salary limit set by LaLiga for next season.

According to the Catalan radio station, registering Iñigo in the squad for next season would require him to be treated as a new signing, given that he was registered exceptionally this year. This means starting from scratch, which is hampered by the Basque defender’s salary, making it difficult to compose the future team.

Iñigo Martínez’s days at FC Barcelona are numbered

Martínez joined Barcelona on a free transfer this summer after refusing to renew his contract with Athletic Club, and he has one year left on his contract. However, the emergence of young talents like Eric García and Alejandro Balde, as well as Laporta’s statements about Ronald Araújo, suggest that the club is firmly committed to a new generation of defenders, including Mika Mármol from Barcelona Atlètic.

On the other hand, Barça sees the registration of Iñigo Martínez as a problem and that brings him closer to the exit ramp.

Barcelona’s financial situation is generating unexpected changes in the squad planning for next season, especially in the defensive area. The sale of Martínez could be part of a broader restructuring of the team, allowing the club to make the necessary adjustments to comply with financial restrictions and build a competitive team for the future.
