Bayern seek Javi Martinez replacement

The ESPN FC panel break down how Javi Martinez's injury will effect Bayern Munich moving forward.

Bayern Munich are set to enter the transfer market again with the Bundesliga champions after a replacement for injured Spain international Javi Martinez.

- Transfer Talk: Di Maria to United; Benatia to Bayern
- Busch: Martinez injury piles pressure on Munich

Only a few days ago, the Bayern squad for the upcoming season seemed set in stone -- but following Javi Martinez' ACL injury in the German Supercup last Wednesday, the Bavarians announced a change of their transfer philosophy.

"Javi is a special player, because we have a variety of tactical options with him in the team," coach Pep Guardiola told reporters ahead of the DFB-Pokal match at Preussen Munster, which the title holders won 4-1. "It's just a great shame. We'll miss him. He was running into outstanding form after the summer break."

Martinez' long-term absence from first-team football limits the Catalan's options in defence, with Germany international Jerome Boateng the only right-sided centre-back in the squad.

"We'll never get through a whole season only with Jerome," Guardiola continued. "We need a new player. We only have 15 days left [until the transfer window closes]. It will not be easy to find someone."

Guardiola added that club officials are even more concerned over recruiting a replacement for Martinez, saying: "They by all means want a new player."

On Monday, Munich-based tz reported that the club's new technical director Michael Reschke travelled to Rome to discuss a potential move for Medhi Benatia. While other media outlets like Suddeutsche Zeitung and kicker later rejected those reports, it is believed that Bayern are indeed after the 27-year-old Morocco international, who has also been linked with a switch to Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, Benatia is rated at some 30 million euros, and is under contract at Rome until 2018, with the Serie A side's CEO Italo Zanzi telling Gazzetta dello Sport: "Medhi is one of our players. He has already been sold according to some media reports, but he continues to work very professionally here."

A host of other names have been linked with Bayern: Bild reports that the German champions are interested in Fiorentina's Stefan Savic and Liverpool's Daniel Agger, though the Denmark international is not thought to be Bayern's first choice.
