'Don't want footballers who aren't well here': Girona coach Michel opens up on Arnau Martinez's links to Barca

Speaking about his defender Arnau Martinez being linked to a move to Barcelona, Girona head coach Michel said: “Obviously Arnau is a player who does a lot of things well on the field and he is very young.

“He is a player that other teams may have in mind, but he is ours and I think this season he will continue. And hopefully for many more years because the Girona project is top. But the market is open, many things can happen.

“I hope that what happens is in favor of Girona. If a player arrives, it is to improve and if any leaves, it is because he is not happy. We don’t want footballers who aren’t well here.”

Barca are unlikely to be able to sign a new player in January due to financial fairplay restrictions, but they could go for Martinez’s signing next summer.

With the club looking to offload Hector Bellerin, they could look to replace him with the Girona right-back – who has scored 2 goals and provided an assist in 11 La Liga appearances this season.
