Tottenham and Mourinho clash over World Cup winner GK
It seems that Tottenham Hotspur focused on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The Italian newspaper ‘Calcio Mercato’ reported on the 18th (Korean time) that ‘AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho wants to sign Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. It seems that an interesting scouting war will unfold with Tottenham Hotspur, who are also interested.”
Martinez has been in and out of many teams.바카라 After moving to Arsenal from Arsenal’s prestigious Independiente, he was loaned to Oxford United in League Two (fourth division). Afterwards, he returned to Arsenal and went on loan again to Championship (Second Division) Sheffield Wednesday. He also played for Rotherham in the same Championship.
He also kept the goal on loan in the 2015-16 season when Wolverhampton was in the Championship. Arsenal was not guaranteed a starter, so he left for Getafe in the Spanish Primera Liga, and after returning, went on loan to Reading, which is well-known for the team that Gyeongnam FC coach Seol Ki-hyun played in the past.
In the end, he cut ties with Arsenal in the summer of 2020 and completely transferred to Aston Villa, standing tall as the main gatekeeper. He went scoreless in 31 of 96 games. At the same time, he established himself as the main goalkeeper for the Argentine national team and led Qatar to win the World Cup last year.
The team that noticed the story of renting from Arsenal is North London rival Tottenham. Even if it is not, Hugo Lloris left due to injury, and next season is the last year of the contract, so reinforcement is needed in some way. The Fraser Foster is there, but the internal assessment is that it is unsatisfactory.
The media said, ‘Tottenham want Martinez. Lloris seems to be leaving the team this summer,’ he explained Tottenham’s will to use him as the main goalkeeper.
What is interesting is that Tottenham has already flirted with Yashin Bunu (Sevilla), who led the semifinals of the World Cup as the goalkeeper of Morocco. It is a recruitment match that feels as if anyone is caught by the interest of a dragnet player and will sign if an agreement is reached.
Of course it’s not easy. Martinez came under the radar while looking for resources to replace Patrizio after Mourinho was in his mid-30s at a time when Juventus had taken Martinez. Juventus was unable to participate in the European club competition next season due to the deduction of points due to manipulation of the accounting books. Roma, which has the possibility of advancing to the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL), is more advantageous than the ambiguous Tottenham.
The fight between Mourinho and Tottenham, who once held the Tottenham baton, is therefore more interesting. It is all the more so because Antonio Conte’s future is uncertain and the recruitment of players is in the fog. Aston Villa is in a position to send the transfer fee of 26 million pounds (40.7 billion won). It is a business that remains because he paid 16 million pounds (25 billion won) to Arsenal at the time of his recruitment.
