Manchester United are readying a summer move for Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
That’s according to sources from Football Insider, who claim that the Red Devils are looking to sign two goalkeepers in the upcoming transfer window, with Martinez top of their wishlist.
Martinez’s impressive Villa campaign
He’s kept 14 clean sheets in 27 Premier League appearances, conceding just 28 times. The Argentine’s displays appear to have caught the eye of United officials, who are now seemingly readying a shock offer.
Has Martinez been Villa's best player this season?
Transfer Tavern take
A huge offer will probably be needed for Villa to even consider parting ways with the Argentine, who has been getting regular game time for the first time in his career in the Midlands.
David de Gea and Dean Henderson have been used at Old Trafford this season, so there’s no guarantee Martinez would instantly become first choice under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, even if one of those leave the Red Devils.
United may well be preparing a blockbuster bid, but we’re not convinced Martinez will be making the move to Manchester over the coming months.
