Juve trying to offload Martinez

Juventus’ transfer-listed midfielder Jorge Martinez could be sent on loan to Spanish club Mallorca.

Juve Coach Antonio Conte does not see a future for Martinez at the newly crowned champions and has been actively trying to find him a new club.

The Uruguayan cost Juve a hefty €12m when they bought him from Catania in the summer of 2010, but he has made little impact in Turin.

He spent last season on loan with Cesena but a mixture of injuries and poor form restricted him to just 13 appearances and he again failed to impress.

Mallorca may have handed the 29-year-old playmaker a lifeline with the opportunity to join them on a season-long loan in the Spanish League.

The club will have the option to buy Martinez if they wish, and although the set price hasn’t been disclosed, it will be represent a significant loss for Juve on their investment in him.
