Barcelona push Athletic Bilbao to open Martinez transfer talks

Barcelona will attempt to convince Athletic Bilbao to sell Javi Martinez this summer

After losing Seydou Keita to China's Dalian Aerbin, Barca sports chief Andoni Zubizarreta and coach Tito Vilanova has made Martinez a priority target.

Bilbao insist they're under no pressure to sell and will demand Barca pay Martinez's €40 million buyout clause to land the defensive utility.
