Bayern Munich Eye Martinez As Neuer Replacement

Bayern Munich are looking at Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez as the potential solution to their goalkeeper issue, as Manuel Neuer is expected to miss the second-half of the season through his skiing injury.Martinez, 30, had an interesting journeyman career before arriving with Villa in 2020, having been contracted to Arsenal, but loaned out to Oxford United, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United, Wolves, Getafe and Reading.I

In his first two seasons with Villa, Martinez kept 26 Premier League clean sheets, earning his Argentina debut in June 2021.His ascension to La Albiceleste’s number one saw him earn the 2021 Copa America Golden Glove as the tournament’s best goalkeeper, and he followed it up with another Golden Glove after securing the World Cup title in a penalty shoot-out.Neuer’s leg fracture leaves Bayern without their first-choice goalkeeper, and with only a four-point gap atop the Bundesliga, they are reportedly desperate to secure a replacement in January.
