Bayern keen on Javi Martinez

Bayern Munich's newly-appointed sporting director, Matthias Sammer, has confirmed the club's interest in Athletic Bilbao youngster Javi Martinez.

• Rosell coy on Martinez

Martinez, 23, is highly-rated in his native Spain, having impressed for his club Athletic in midfield and also at centre-back.

Bayern have been linked with making a summer swoop for the Spain international, although the Bundesliga side have stressed they will not pay over the odds for his signature, with an asking price of €40 million mooted.

"I know Javi Martinez pretty well as a player, but I intend to get to know him really well. The people at Bayern who have been monitoring him are of the opinion that he is very good. Let's just wait and see what happens," Sammer was quoted as saying by TZ.

"He has a lot of quality, but quality comes at a price. That's why he is quite expensive. One can always make some crazy signings, but nothing unreasonable. We have a certain responsibility toward the club."
