Part of that windfall is set to be invested in Martinez, with Sociedad confirming interest in the 26-year-old.

“It’s true Barca have spoken with us.

“They’ve been in contact to show their interest in the player. But so far there is no offer on the table. That’s all we can say.

“La Real have no intention of facilitating Inigo’s exit to any club. He is irreplaceable. We do not want to sell him,” Sporting director Loren Juarros told reporters on Friday.
