Spanish giants Atletico Madrid have been linked with a move for Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the links on social media.
According to Spanish outlet La Razon, Atletico find themselves ‘on the brink of the salary limit’ after bringing Antoine Griezmann back to the club from Barcelona.
How much is Martinez worth?
They could be forced to offload one of their star players as a result, potentially ‘keeper Jan Oblak. Should they do just that, the report claims that Atletico have picked out Martinez as a possible replacement, with Oblak’s sale potentially covering the costs of a deal for the Villa man.
Villa fans react
“Here we go! The rumour mill has commenced”
“One of the most inane tweets I’ve ever seen.”
“Utter rubbish, must be a slow news day in an international break.”
“That’s nice for them.”
“Why would he downgrade?”
