Sammer: Everything depends on Bilbao

Bayern Munich director Matthias Sammer has admitted that Athletic Bilbao will ultimately decide Javi Martinez’s immediate future.

The midfielder is the subject of a reported €40m move to the Bavarians, but negotiations look to have stalled amid reports of Athletic’s intention to keep hold of the player. 

“There is nothing to report at the moment, we must digest a few things but the move for Martinez is down to Bilbao,” stated the former Borussia Dortmund player in conversation with Sky Germany.

“The transfer is nowhere near being completed, we have made our position clear and Bilbao must now react.”
