They were a lot of the names that appeared in the orbit of the FC Barcelona like possible reinforcements for the forward, but in the last days has tightened the siege and Martin Braithwaite has turned into the big favourite. In question of hours could do official his signing by the Barça, unless the group culé change radically of opinion and bet by another alternative in the Spanish market.

From the Catalan entity have foreseen to carry out a last attempt of negotiation with the Leganés, with the aim to save the payment of the clause of 18 million euros of the Danish forward. The most likely is that the club 'pepinero' do not accept the conditions culés and follow remitting to the clause, by what in such a case the Barcelona could credit today same the price of the signing.

The FC Barcelona already has arrived to an agreement with the footballer, after his agent arrived to Barcelona the past Monday at night. Now only it remains that the two clubs close the agreement, something that can suceder anytime. To his 28 years, Braithwaite is seen from the offices of the Camp Nou like a Henrik Larsson in potential, the typical forward that goes out from the bench to contribute his granite of sand in each party.

Quique Setién wished the arrival of a versatile player, because without Dembélé has prioritised to a footballer with arrival and goal but also with options to be adapted to the band. It is the case of Braithwaite more than the one of Ángel Rodríguez, the attacker of the Getafe that also arrived to be during days in the diary of the Barcelona club. The age also has influenced, since Ángel already has 32 years.

Braithwaite, in front of the big opportunity of his career

In what it goes of campaign, Braithwaite accumulates 6 goals in League and 2 in Glass of the King with the Leganés, having played a total of 27 parties (23 of them like titling). It played in the Esbjerg (2009-13), the Toulouse (2013-2017), the Middlesbrough (2017-18) and the Girondins of Burdeos (2018), before the Leganés adquiese his rights of property.

Now, it can have the opportunity of his career futbolística when arriving to the FC Barcelona, and does not want to desaprovecharla. Sabedor That will have a totally secondary role, will try that his minutes serve to contribute assistances, goals and a lot of sacrifice on the lawn. If will have the sufficient success as to hold or no more than half season in the club, already is another history.
