Since the crowning of Argentina at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, much has been said about Emiliano Martinez. His club, Aston Villa, would not oppose his departure.
Emiliano Martinez has had a turbulent last few days. The Argentine goalkeeper had the immense pleasure of winning the World Cup in Qatar with his team. The South American player will also have had a big part in Argentina’s success. Randal Kolo Muani will probably not say the opposite, he who saw his shot brilliantly stopped by Emiliano Martinez during the extra time of the World Cup final in 2022. Problem, the attitude of the Aston Villa goalkeeper shocked him more than one. Between provocations, insults and trolls moved on Kylian Mbappé, Martinez even irritated in Birmingham, where his coach Unai Emery publicly criticized the behavior of the 30-year-old player.

If he recently returned to Aston Villa, the former Getafe may soon leave the English club. Still under contract until 2027, the Argentine could indeed be replaced by Jordan Pickford (Everton). At least that’s what it says The sun the last few hours. The British media clarify that the English goalkeeper is highly valued by the management of Aston Villa, while Martinez is being courted by certain clubs, such as Bayern Munich. The Villans management will not oppose Martinez’s departure in the event of a good offer and are therefore ready to go ahead by offering Jordan Pickford, also tracked by Chelsea. It remains to be seen how things will fare with Unai Emery in the coming days as Martinez has just returned to Birmingham. Will he be lined up as a starter or not? This Sunday in the Premier League during the meeting between Tottenham and Aston Villa, it was Robin Olsen who stood on the line. The Swedish porter has given some interesting guarantees.
