Martinez´s parents urge Bilbao to sell

25 August 2012 16:45

The parents of Javi Martinez have urged Athletic Bilbao to let their son join Bayern Munich.

The Bundesliga giants have been constantly linked with a move for the Spain international, but the Basque side's president Josu Urrutia has remained firm in his belief that the 23-year-old will only move for 40 million euros.

That fee, which meets Martinez's release clause, has proved too much for the Bavarians but, according to German newspaper Bild, the player's parents have now implored Bilbao to let their son depart for Germany.

President Urrutia, however, has remained steadfast in holding out for his asking price, telling Basque TV station ETB: "We rely on our players from an early age, we want them to try and end their careers here.

"We do not do business with our players. It is a part of our history. In order for a player to leave Bilbao, he has to resolve his contractual arrangements."

But Bayern president Uli Hoeness believes Martinez is overpriced: "A normal market value of Martinez is only 20-25 million euros."
