Atlético has set to work to take over the services of Arnau Martínez, the LaLiga sensation winger. The rojiblanco club and Girona have already started talks for the transfer of the player. As AS has learned, the agreement between Atlético and the defender is practically complete. The two clubs need to close the deal so that Arnau Martínez will be a mattress player next season.
Girona has begun talks referring to the 20 million termination clause, but the interest in staying with Riquelme and incorporating some more Atlético player makes it possible for the agreement to be closed at a lower price. The final figure could be around 10 or 12 million and the inclusion of several footballers.
The duration of the contract that Arnau would sign still remains to be specified, but It would be 4 or 5 seasons.
Barcelona is the other Spanish club that was also interested in the winger formed at La Masía, but his financial limitations have prevented him from entering the bid. Arnau is being one of the revelations of the season and one of Girona’s most decisive footballers. He has scored two goals and has given an assist, but his influence on the Catalan club’s game transcends his numbers.
