Agent of Barcelona striker Braithwaite blasts Jorge Mendes over Wolves move

The agent of Denmark striker Martin Braithwaite has let rip at super agent Jorge Mendes.

Hasan Cetinkaya denied that his client was set to move from Barcelona to Wolves, where Mendes has significant influence.

Much speculation has surrounded the striker this summer, as he impressed at Euro 2020 and is surplus to requirements at Barcelona.

Cetinkaya told BT newspaper: "Jorge Mendes has nothing to do with Martin Braithwaite, he is also false like all the other writings. Jorge Mendes does not have players in Barcelona. In Wolverhampton he can concentrate, but I take care of my players in Barcelona.

"Why should Martin Braithwaite move to Wolverhampton, and why should an agent who has no players in Barcelona try to bring my player to Wolverhampton, even though I know Jorge Mendes has good connections with clubs like Wolverhampton? It's a waste of time for all.

"Martin Braithwaite plays for the largest club in the world, he works with one of the most important coaches in the world. From day one until now, everything has exceeded all expectations in terms of playing time in Barcelona and well-being at the club, and he is very happy.

"He was one of the best players of the last European Championship with incredible statistics, and he will continue in Barcelona."
