Jackson Martinez agent reveals January transfer agenda


Atletico Madrid will decide the future of forward Jackson Martinez in the January transfer window

The Colombian’s agent has insisted that his client wishes to remain in the Spanish capital.

Martinez, 29, has struggled to adapt to life in Madrid since joining from Porto earlier this year scoring just twice in 11 La Liga appearances.

However, this hasn’t stopped interest from English duo Chelsea and Tottenham who reportedly want the Colombian international on loan.

And while his agent, Henrique Pompeo, refused to rule out a departure for Martinez, he admitted the striker still wants to create his time with Diego Simeone’s side into an overall success.

“Jackson wants to succeed at Atletico, but it’s the club who will decide his future,” he told Spanish new outlet AS.

“I cannot say if it’s a lie, that’s football, and nobody knows what will happen in the future.

“What I want to say is that Jackson is not someone who will go somewhere unless it’s through the front door.

“He made a choice and he is very happy in Madrid, he loves the club, although obviously he would have liked to start in another way on a personal level.

“He had to adapt to a new playing culture, and a thousand others things, and then the injury came. But he’s happy for the group because things are going well.”
