Barcelona ‘already looking to sell’ Martin Braithwaite just ONE month after shock £15m transfer over financial problems – The Sun

BARCELONA striker Martin Braithwaite could  already be heading out the Nou Camp door as the Spanish side struggle with money problems, according to reports.

The Blaugrana have been affected by the coronavirus with the club struggling to pay their players nd the squad forced to take a 50 per cent pay cut.

And it has now been stated that the Catalan club are looking to sell ex-Middlesbrough forward Braithwaite just a month after he joined in a shock £15million deal from Leganes.

Despite signing a deal with Barcelona until 2024, his time at the club could already be over after just three LaLiga games played.

According to Spanish news outlet Sport, Barca will not allow the Denmark international to leave unless they receive a fee in the region of £16.1m.

They state that Premier League clubs West Ham and Everton are keen on bringing the striker back to England.

Braithwaite is yet to find the back of the net in his three games, but he has reportedly won over his team-mates, with Barca coaches also valuing his role in the team.

But it has been claimed that the player was aware of the fact he could be shifted off in the summer, but he wanted to prove his worth to the club.

However the Covid-19 crisis has slowed down his chances of making a better impact.
