Barcelona and Real target Gelson Martins will not leave Sporting Lisbon in January, according to the player’s representative.
The winger has impressed this season and is reportedly a target for Spain’s big two.
However, Martins’ representative Ulisses Santos says neither club has produced an offer for his client.
“There is no proposal. He is a Sporting player and will continue being so in January. For sure, he will not leave. He has a long contract and will not leave,” he is quoted as saying in AS.
Martins is currently under contract at Sporting until 2021 with a €60m buyout clause. Santos has hinted that the wideman could sign a new deal soon.
He added: “We are in conversations and we will see what happens. The atmosphere is good and I am sure that we will reach a good understanding.”
According to A Bola, Gelson has a contract at Sporting until 2021, with a release clause set at €60m (£50.6m, $64.6m). Yet, Sporting reportedly want to hand him a new deal in order to increase that clause to €80m
