Manchester United has entered the race for Martín Zubimendi, Real Sociedad’s star midfielder, alongside Arsenal and FC Barcelona. Mikel Arteta’s interest in the 24-year-old has not gone unnoticed, as Zubimendi has been linked with a possible move since the last transfer window.
With Arteta prioritizing the addition of a midfielder, Zubimendi finds himself on a shortlist that includes Everton’s Amadou Onana and Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz. However, Manchester United’s interest now poses a challenge to Arsenal, as they reportedly join the fight to secure the services of the talented midfielder.
Both Barcelona and Manchester United have reignited their interest in Zubimendi, who has impressed with his performances in LaLiga this season. Playing 20 games, he has contributed with four goals and an assist. Express Sport reports that both clubs are looking to sign Zubimendi in the upcoming summer transfer window.
While Zubimendi will not leave Real Sociedad before the end of the season, reports suggest that Barcelona and Manchester United are seriously considering making bids once the campaign concludes. With a release clause of £50m, Zubimendi could become a highly sought-after player for the Premier League giants. However, the final decision will ultimately rest with the player and his team, as they choose between offers that can match that fee.
