Martin Braithwaite is one of the players to which the FC Barcelona​ wants to give gone out this summer. After the signings of Memphis Depay​ and of the Kun Agüero, the Barcelona forward has 'overbooking' and the Danish is the most toneless of all the attackers. By this reason, has remained without place as '9' and the club pretends to convince him so that it do the cases and leave to play to another team.

However, up to now it seemed that the attempts for doing him see that the best for him is to go out had been useless. The Nordic Was sticking to his dream to triumph in the Barça and for now had not negotiated with any of the clubs that could be interested in him. This was being a problem for the Barcelona, that pretended to take advantage of the inertia of his good Eurocopa to do box with him by the maximum possible price.

Luckily, the things have changed these last weeks and the tip could be very near to join to the West Ham, that would be had to pay 15 million euros by him. As it explains the newspaper 'Sport', the 'hammers' have an almost closed agreement with the Barcelona, slope only of some fringes. Nevertheless, the deal with the player still would not be resolved and there would be problems with his wage.

For the moment, Braithwaite still has not given his seen well to the signing, since the wage that offer him the londinenses is not sufficient for him. Although they have not gone out numbers, seems that his new index card would not improve the one who has in the Camp Nou, by what would be demanding more to close the agreement. In case that the 'hammers' go up his proposal, the '9' will leave to London with almost total security.

The traspaso could confirm next week

It could be question of days that all do official, but before the West Ham will have to fulfil with the requirements of Martin. While, the Barça expects that all finish well, since the 15 'kilos' that would earn by him would come very very given the economic situation of the entity. In case that the traspaso do not go out advance, the Catalans will try to activate other possible destinations, since the Danish has more 'girlfriends'.
