Since the coronation of Argentina at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Emiliano Martinez has been talked about a lot. His club, Aston Villa, would not be opposed to his departure.
Emiliano Martinez has had a turbulent last few days. The Argentinian goalkeeper had the immense pleasure of winning the World Cup in Qatar with his team. The South American player will also have had a major role in the success of Argentina. Randal Kolo Muani will probably not say the opposite, he who saw his strike brilliantly stopped by Emiliano Martinez during the extension of the 2022 World Cup final. Problem, the attitude of the Aston Villa goalkeeper shocked him more than one. Between provocations, insults and trolls moved on Kylian Mbappé, Martinez even annoyed 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 could soon leave the English club. Still under contract until 2027, the Argentinian could indeed be replaced by Jordan Pickford (Everton). At least that’s what it says The Sun these last hours. The British media specifies that the English doorman is very appreciated by the management of Aston Villa, while Martinez is courted by certain clubs, such as Bayern Munich. The management of the Villans will not oppose the departure of Martinez in the event of a good offer and is therefore ready to move on by offering Jordan Pickford, also tracked by Chelsea. It remains to be seen how Unai Emery will fare in the coming days, as Martinez has just made his return to Birmingham. Will he be aligned as a starter or not? This Sunday in the Premier League during the meeting between Tottenham and Aston Villa, it was Robin Olsen who was aligned. The Swedish porter has provided some interesting guarantees.
