Juanfran: €3m for Martins is a fortune

Levante defender Juanfran has admitted that the €3m they could receive for Obafemi Martins would be a 'fortune'.

American side Seattle Sounders are reportedly interested in the Nigerian forward, and are willing to pay his minimum fee release clause of €3m.

The 36-year-old defender though has conceded that the striker is vital to the club, even if they can receive a relatively large fee.

“If the move is completed, then €3m is a fortune for a club like Levante,” he told reporters.

“But he is key for us – nobody wants to see him leave.”
