Consider yourself forewarned. Barring the Monstars touching down and stealing his essence, or some sort of sad sad Fernando Torres-type situation, whoever signs Porto’s Colombian striker Jackson Martínez this summer is getting an absolute beast. Already known for outrageous strikes, brilliant finishes, and pure feats of outrageous skill, Martínez’s star is rapidly rising, and a big-money move from Porto seems imminent.
Over the weekend, Martínez was at it again, pulling off a Zlatan-esque piece of acrobatics and technical ability that may just be the best assist of the year. This guy is special.
