The future of Martin Braithwaite has been complicated, after FC Barcelona negotiated with him the rescission of his contract. The Catalans have everything to lose with the Danish striker
The future of Martin Braithwaite is in the air after, during the past week, informed that the FC Barcelona was working to reach an agreement with him for the rescission of his agreement, which finalises in the summer of 2024. The player is putting a lot of conditions and resists to the idea to go out of the Spotify Camp Nou without earning what him 'correspond'. The situation, to day of today, is to the limit.
The position of the Barça has not changed with Braithwaite. Xavi Hernández communicated to the footballer that had to do his cases because it did not have he of face to the season 2022-2023, even before they arrived the new signings. The Danish did not achieve to win a place (not even of '9' acting) after recovering of his injury in January. In fact, since it returned of the infirmary and under the orders of the trainer egarense only contested 22 minutes (12' in the Glass of Rey, against the Athletic and 10' in front of the Osasuna in LaLiga).
The message always has been very clear, but by part of the player also. In any moment has given signals to want to do his cases of face to the next course and the options that it leave exhaust . The Barça negotiated the possibility of 'resolve' his agreement and award him the letter of freedom, but Braithwaite put his conditions: if they do not pay him the two years of agreement that remain him, does not leave .
It is a possibility that from the Barcelona club do not value. It would be a new ruin for the club with a player with which do not explain at all. It is in all his right to demand the payment, because it was what signed in his agreement in 2020 when it arrived pertinent of the Leganés, but the Barcelona thought that went to arrive to a point 'half' so that it left free and could recalar in a team where himself could see minutes.
Revenge by part of Braithwaite? It is a theory that very hardly check , but what himself is true is that the Danish is testing the patience of the Barça in this summer. Everything aims to that will be still in the team, because it does not have intentions to present offers to the club or leave to earn his wage, that, by the way, would see very reduced in any team to the that left .
Everything seems to indicate to that the Barça will try to follow negotiating to the player so that it leave as soon as possible. Recently it informed that the club valued the possibility to give an ultimatum to Braithwaite and Samuel Umtiti in case that they did not produce novelties in the next days. The option to give the letter of freedom (unilaterally) is on the table, but is an option that would bring legal consequences for the blaugrana.
It is thus that the club had quoted to Hasan Centikaya, agent of the Danish player, to look for a solution. 'ESPN' Had informed that the meeting went to produce this Wednesday, but did not trascend further. The Barça will try to look for, in definite, a friendly exit, but has remained clear that Braithwaite will not yield in front of the requirements and pressures. It understands that everything depends on he same.
