According to reports, Manchester United is mulling a move for Emiliano Martinez.
It has been claimed that Manchester United has competition for the signing of Emiliano Martinez from Chelsea and Juventus. Martinez is the goalkeeper for Argentina that won the World Cup. The performances of the Aston Villa player in Qatar have piqued the interest of several of Europe’s most prestigious teams, which are on the lookout for a new goalkeeper to add to their rosters.
Martinez was not only one of the most impressive players at the World Cup, but he also took home the Golden Glove Award for being the competition’s top goalkeeper. After making a crucial save in the waning seconds of Argentina’s match against Australia in the round of 16, he was an integral part of the team that went on to win the tournament and hoist the trophy. He stopped two penalties in the shootout during Argentina’s quarterfinal match against the Netherlands.
Nevertheless, he made his most significant contribution during the championship game of the World Cup. After making a spectacular stop in the 123rd minute, Randal Kolo Muani forced the game to go to penalties, where he then made a save against Kingsley Coman. His antics prior to the penalty kιck have also been blamed for causing menтal interference for Aurelin Tchouameni, which resulted in the midfielder missing his penalty kιck.
It has been reported by Fabrizio Romano that he may become caught up in a ‘domino effect’ and become a possibility for either Manchester United or Chelsea if he were to leave Villa Park. This has led to him being linked with a move away from Villa Park.

The transfer expert stated the following while appearing on the CBS House of Champions podcast: “Emiliano Martinez could be part of a domino effect with goalkeepers next summer, perhaps with Chelsea or Manchester United, let’s see.” (Emiliano Martinez could be part of a domino effect with goalkeepers next summer)
The titans of the Premier League are not the only club that has been connected with a move for Martinez. According to reports, Juventus is also in the running for the player’s signature. The Old Lady are looking for a longer-term replacement for goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, whose contract will end in 2024, and reports from Italy say that they are prepared to hand Aston Villa Weston McKennie in return for the goalie.
Martinez said that Argentina needed to endure hardship in order to triumph at the World Cup, as Kylian Mbappe was responsible for erasing the team’s advantage on two separate occasions before to Martinez’s courageous penalty kιcks.

After the game, he commented on how much paιn his team had to endure. “We believed we had the situation under control, but they were able to make a comeback. The game was quite difficult to understand. Our lot in life was to endure adversity. They had one more opportunity to win, but fortunately I was able to block it with my foot. They did not win.
“This is a moment I’ve always dreamed of living, and I simply don’t have the vocabulary to describe it. I left my family when I was very young to pursue a career in England, and I would like to dedicate this triumph to them.
