Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez hopes the club will reach an agreement with Bayern Munich over him joining the German giants in the near future.
The Spain international has been linked with a move to the Allianz Arena since the end of last season, but there has been no agreement as yet.
According to reports, Athletic have turned down a bid from Bayern as they hold out for €46million and the delay is frustrating Martinez.
"Like I have said before, I just have to wait and I hope that there can be a quick resolution," the 23 year-old told Bild am Sonntag.
"I cannot say much more about the situation. I am relaxed and I am training to maintain my fitness and I just hope that a decision can be made soon."
Martinez has been surprised by the German media's interest in him since he was first reported to be on Bayern's radar.
"I have spoken to the newspapaer from Germany as they focused on me and my life," he added.
"It is crazy. It is a great feeling to know that the German people are interested in me."
In recent weeks Martinez has made it clear that he wants to leave Athletic along with striker Fernando Llorente and the duo have lost the affection of the Basque club's supporters.
