Two products of this club’s youth program have stated their intention to return to their roots at a certain stage in the near future.
The prolific striker, currently turning out for Manchester City, has admitted that he intends to go back to his origins at a certain stage. With Aguero approaching his 32nd birthday, such a switch could happen sooner rather than later.
Whenever the decision is taken to go home, Martinez says he will attempt to conduct a similar course.
The 27-year-old has spent eight years since a backup option with Arsenal, making only 25 looks, but could happily walk away from north London if the opportunity presented itself to link up with a fellow Independiente academy graduate in Buenos Aires.
It is the club that he loves. The simple truth is that you can never rule out that.
“I’m open to everything, particularly with this particular British material.
“I played Argentina until I was 17 or 18. I’m never going to say no to the chance of coming back, maybe in a couple of years, I’ll be looking forward to it”
Martinez left his homeland for England in 2010, with Arsenal moving to incorporate his potential to their famed youth system in north London.
Fierce competition for places has restricted that the South American to occasional senior outings for the Gunners, with only six of his looks coming from the Premier League.
He has, nevertheless, enjoyed an experience outside his comfort zone and remains tied into a contract through to the summer of 2022.
Martinez added on his career path: “The most difficult thing was to leave home as a youngster, I left the club I loved, from Independienteaway from my family members. The fear I had was to neglect abroad, but in these 10 years I supported myself at Arsenal, I combined the Argentina national team.
“I still have a contract for two more seasons, but I am open to all because I want to play here or in a different club.”
Martinez has received two call-ups into the senior Argentina group, to get a friendly date using Nigeria at 2011 and clashes with Germany and Ecuador in November 2019, but has been an unused substitute on both occasions.
