Man City ready bid for Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez

Manchester City are preparing a January move for Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez.

Pep Guardiola is concerned about his strength in depth without England international John Stones and his side's ability to build play from the back.

Barcelona are also in the hunt, but City could look to pair him with Stones after he recovers from injury for the long term.

City boss Guardiola knows they can land Martinez for a cut-price fee in January.

His buyout clause set at €32m.
