By, Bye Bye Arsenal as £20 million Martinez sends farewell message to the fans after agreeing to leave the club

Emiliano Martinez has sent a farewell message to Arsenal and their fans ahead of his move to Aston Villa.

Martinez has been a revelation in the Arsenal side since he took over Bernd Leno just after the re-start of football, and his performances have been impressing alot of people, and clubs.

However, he was not guaranteed a regular starting spot once at the Emirates and the Gunners made the decision to cash in on the stopper this summer, with reports revealing that he will cost Villa £20 million to acquire.

And ahead of his move to Villa, Martinez sent a farewell message to Arsenal and their fans as he embarks on a new challenge after spending ten years at the Arsenal, where he was more than settled.

Speaking on Instagram, he said: “With my family we decided, 11 years at Arsenal and you work 10 years so hard, you leave through the front door today.

“For me I could not be happier to leave through the front door with the Arsenal fan base supporting me and the club.

“I’m very grateful for the 11 years at Arsenal, even if it was a hard road for me and I suffer through my time here.

“But today I’m happy, and I try to show young goalkeepers that hard work pays off.”

Losing Martinez is a massive blow to the club as he has been very impressive over the past few months, so Villa have signed themselves a real classy stopper that should add points to the club.

However, Arsenal now need to invest that £20 million and add to the squad, as they have a real chance of winning a big trophy this season if a midfielder or two is brought to the club over the next few weeks.

But fans will surely wish Martinez the best
