United's Spanish summer target signs

Published Add your comment

Manchester United hopes of signing Javi Martinez from Athletico Bilbao look over after the Spaniard signed a new deal with the La Liga side.

The 22-year-old was part of the Spain squad that won the World Cup in South Africa last year.

And United were hoping to land the midfielder after chief scout Martin Ferguson was spotted in the stands during Bilbao's clash with Espanyol earlier this month.


Hoping to bolster their midfield ahead of the new season, United had targeted Martinez, who had caught the eye with his club this season.

But now with their hopes dashed, United may turn their attention to Ashley Young or Jordan Henderson.
