Man Utd create Emiliano Martinez transfer plan in double goalkeeper swoop

And it is claimed that Aston Villa’s Martinez is at the top of their wishlist to provide competition to Henderson from next season.

Another goalkeeper will also be targeted to give Solskjaer three senior options moving forward.

Martinez has impressed since leaving Arsenal for Villa Park last summer, keeping 14 clean sheets in 27 Premier League matches and playing a key role in Dean Smith’s side push up the table.

Villa will unlikely let Martinez leave on the cheap though having paid £20million to sign him last summer.

The 28-year-old signed a four-year contract with Villa, meaning his current deal doesn’t expire until 2024.
