LaLiga: Barcelona complete first summer signing without Xavi’s approval

Barcelona have signed their first player of the 2023 summer window.

The Catalan giants have completed the signing of experienced center-back Inigo Martinez from Athletic Club, according to Sport.

However, the signing was made without manager Xavi Hernandez’s approval, according to El National.

The defender has signed a deal with the Catalan giants to keep him at Camp Nou until 2025, with a reported salary of around €9 million.

Sport reports that Martinez will join Barcelona at the end of the season to bolster their defense.

His move to Barcelona follows the exit of veteran defender Gerard Pique and a series of injuries that have plagued the team.

Martinez, a Spain international, was close to joining Barcelona a few seasons ago.

Martinez was not Xavi’s preferred choice with the center-back position already well-covered.
