Martin Braithwaite fighting to stay with Barcelona

Martin Braithwaite is fighting to stay with Barcelona.

Sport says Braithwaite is one of the players most reluctant to leave Barcelona, even though Xavi Hernandez has no need for them. The Danish forward is determined to play at Camp Nou, which is the biggest opportunity in his sporting career, and he doesn't care about the money he could lose elsewhere.

He will not give in to departing easily, and his team aren't looking for new options for him elsewhere. Some clubs in Spain are interested in loaning him and some abroad would buy him. Barcelona want eight million euros for him, and have told his people they will not let him depart for free.

Braithwaite is in no rush. His salary is also one of the lowest in the squad so various teams could afford him. The question is, whether he would accept a move away if teams bid for him.
