Manchester City To Rival Real Madrid for Espanyol Left-back Aaron Martin

Manchester City are ready to compete with Real Madrid for Espanyol’s Aaron Martin, reports the Sun.

The 19-year-old can be acquired for his £26m buyout clause, with City manager Pep Guardiola desperate to freshen his full-back options.

Fabio Coentrao will likely be discarded by Los Blancos this summer, with Martin seen as ideal cover for Madrid left-back Marcelo.

A starting role could emerge at City, though, which may be more attractive to Martin, as neither Gael Clichy nor Aleksandar Kolarov, who has moved inside to play centre-back, look to be ideal for the role under Guardiola.
