The FC Barcelona had to take a decision of emergency in the past month of February when it confirmed the injury of Ousmane Dembélé. The French had to go through the operating theatre after going back to break and the Barça remained without a player that had to be importantísimo in what it subtracted of campaign. The drop of the Frenchman added to the one of Luis Suárez​, that fell lesionado in January and did not go to be able to go back to play until May.

With this panorama, the group barcelonista decided to attend to the market of signings to do with a '9' that it could cover the drop of both forwards. The Catalans could fichar a replacement of Dembélé by law and like this did it. Only it could arrive an attacker of low profile and the elected was Martin Braithwaite, that landed in the Camp Nou pertinent of the Leganés in return of 18 million euros.

The Danish, in spite of not having an important path, was an incorporation with potential. It arrived to say even that it could be the Henrik Larssson of this Barça, but the stop by the coronavirus has finished affecting very negatively to the Nordic. The ex pepinero began to play and to feel important to finals of February and beginnings of March, but just when it could give a jump of quality the football had to stop.

After the turn, the '19' marked and was to title against the Mallorca leaving very good feelings. It seemed that it went to be followed being important, but Luis Suárez returned of his injury and the one of Denmark left to explain. Only it has contested two crashes to title since and has not played at all at all in three meetings from this moment. In total, since it arrived to the City Condal has added 403 minutes of the more than 1200 that it could have contested, a too low figure. It gives the feeling that even Ansu Fati has advanced him in the rotation to eyes of Quique Setién and his future is increasingly desesperanzador.

The future of Braithwaite could depend on Lautaro

The Barcelona follows having to Lautaro Martínez in his radar and the intention of the club is to do with the '10' of the Inter of Milan in this market veraniego. This would put even more complicated the things to Martin, that is likely that saw forced to do the cases. In 'Sportive World', in fact, already signal that the aim of the culés is to try do box with the Danish to recover good part of the money that invested in him in February.

Also the own Braithawaite and his representative are had to look for an exit that allow him have the minutes that does not go to have in Can Barça. Nevertheless, they have not arrived offers by the tip still and fits the possibility that it have to remain or that it was necessary to look for him a cession. His future right now hangs of a thread and will depend especially of if it finish arriving Lautaro or no.
