Manchester United and Chelsea are said to be in a race to sign goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
According to TyC Sports reporter Gaston Edul, Emiliano Martinez will be looking for a new club this summer, despite still having a contract with Aston Villa until June 2027. The 30-year-old goalkeeper is receiving interest from Man United, Chelsea and Tottenham.
All three clubs are looking for a new goalkeeper this summer. De Gea’s contract with MU is about to expire, Chelsea are uncertain about the level of Kepa Arrizabalaga while Hugo Lloris is expected to leave Spurs after 11 years.
Emiliano Martinez has risen to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world. He was a key player in helping Argentina win the World Cup in Qatar. However, the antics the goalkeeper created in the penalty shootout against France, and the celebrations after the victory, made Martinez a controversial figure.
This weekend, Emi Martinez and Aston Villa will play against Tottenham in the Premier League. This is a decisive battle for Villa’s ability to attend the European Cup next season. Currently, Unai Emery’s army is in 8th place in the rankings, 1 point behind the group participating in the European Cup.
Aston Villa have been impressive under Unai Emery and achieved a very long unbeaten streak. However, the progress of this team has been stopped when losing the last 2 matches in a row. However, Villa can still overcome Tottenham themselves if they win their direct confrontation this weekend.
