Atlanta United appears to be going all-in on its rebuilding project this offseason as it looks to rebound from a forgettable 2020 season under new manager Gabriel Heinze. After reports landed in recent days of two incoming young central midfielders — Santiago Sosa and Franco Ibarra — the team now looks to be addressing the back line through Defensa y Justicia central defender Hector David Martinez.

Argentine-based reporter German Garcia Grova has had his finger on the pulse of the Atlanta United news this window, so we can take this report with high levels of confidence.

Martinez would fit immediately in Atlanta’s back line as its best ball-playing center back.
