Benfica agree Aaron Martin deal

Benfica have agreed a €9m deal for Espanyol defender Aaron Martin, but the deal will not be announced until other deals are processed.

A report in Marca outlines how the Portuguese giants have struck an agreement with the full-back, who has starred for the Catalan side across the past two seasons.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Napoli have all previously been linked with the Spain youth international, who started 31 La Liga matches this campaign.

The deal is expected to be announced when another Spanish left-back, Alex Grimaldo, departs the Lisbon-based club to join Napoli – a transfer that is expected to be processed next month.
