The latest information that has come to light ensures that, before deciding on Braithwaite, Barça had tied Angel Rodriguez for six million and two optional
This Monday to the midday, LaLiga and the Real Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF) gave green light to the FC Barcelona for the signing of a forward, after the medical committee validated the report on the injury of long length of Ousmane Dembélé. It was then when apareciíon with strength the name of Martin Braithwaite, forward of the Leganés, that seems to be definitively the elected by the club.
According to several sectors of the press, the FC Barcelona has decided to deposit the 18 million euros of the clause of rescission of the Danish in an operation that can describe as unexpected by the informations arisen during the last week. In concrete because, during several days, the name that sounded with more strength to dress of Barcelona was the one of Ángel Rodríguez, of the Getafe.
In fact, according to the informations published by the newspaper Sport, the FC Barcelona had an enclosed agreement with the club azulón so that the ariete Tenerifean arrived to the Camp Nou in return of six million fixed euros more other two in concept of variables. A pact that the own Ángel knew before the Barça-Getafe that played the past and in which the Tenerifean marked -and did not celebrate- the only goal of the azulones.
We are speaking of a footballer that has a clause of rescission of 10 million euros, a quantity that Ángel Torres, president of the Getafe, already informed that it could recess and that, seemingly, would have done it in two million euros. The ariete Tenerifean, to his 32 years, liked by his experience and his talent like revulsivo, that has played this season a total of 27 parties, in which it has achieved to annotate 13 targets.
The FC Barcelona finally desestimó the operation of Ángel Rodríguez by two main reasons. The first is the need of a polyvalent forward transmitted by Quique Setién: the Tenerifean is a '9' pure and, instead, Braithwaite is an attacker that can adapt so much to the place of leading centre as to the of extreme by the left band.
In addition to the sportive reasons, also is the economic. The FC Barcelona considers that the forward of the Leganés, of 28 years, is a player with more market that the ariete of the Getafe, of 32. Like this the things, would be much simpler for the Barcelona club sell him in a future in case of not going in in the plans of the technical office.
