Man City face Bayern Munich competition for Javi Martinez

Manchester City face competition from Bayern Munich for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez.

City are keen to bring the Spaniard to Eastlands and considered themselves favourites to outbid their rivals Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

But the Daily Mail says Bayern are now looking to beat their rivals to the punch and agree the fee first.

The player has yet to agree but that will leave Barca in a difficult position and put the onus on City also to match the terms.
