The Manchester City target has stated he does not want to play for the Catalan Club.
The Basque defender has been linked with multiple clubs such as City, Real Madrid, Bayern and Barcelona. But he stated that he doesn’t see himself playing for the mighty Blaugrana.
The 23-year-old is wanting to stay with the Basque based side, and stressed that he wanted to see out his contract.
“I don’t see myself playing for Barcelona. I am very happy at Athletic. I have a contract until 2016 and the truth is that I see myself at Athletic [until then],” he stated to Antena 3.
“I’ve read a lot of things in the newspapers, but not everything that’s being said is true. If we were to believe all the rumours, I’d have signed for seven different teams already.”
Martinez has made over 200 Primera Division appearances for Athletic since making his official debut in 2006-07.
