Javi Martinez crowned his Bayern career with Champions League victories. He moved from Bilbao to bayern for €40 million and helped his new club secure Europe’s ultimate soccer prize. He now returns to his home on a reported fee of €10 million.
Bayern had said that they would not put any obstacles in Javi’s way. Martinez was overheard joking during a training session that Bilbao had only the jersey number 2 left for him. Now we’ll presumably see whether that pans out.
Javi played 238 games for Bayern. He leaves with a trophy collection of 8 Bundesliga championships, 5 DFB-Pokale, two Champions League cups, a Club World Cup, and a European Supercup.
