Manchester United and Manchester City look set for a massive transfer snub - with Javi Martinez close to joining Bayern Munich.
The German giants are still reeling from their Champions League heartbreak to Chelsea and now they're planning on a squad overhaul this summer - with Martinez in their sights.
City and United both want the Athletic Bilbao star, who is currently at Euro 2012 with Spain.
Indeed, City believed they would sign the defensive midfielder but it appears their move has been hijacked.
Munich have approached Bilbao and are keen on striking a deal quickly, with Martinez said to be open to a switch to Germany.
The 23-year-old, who can also play in the centre of defence, would command a fee in excess of £25m.
Bayern can pay that with no problem and they are increasingly confident of landing Martinez.
