The signing of Martin Braithwaite for FC Barcelona was a complete disaster. The club paid almost $20 million for the Danish attacker, who played 16 games scoring only one goal and giving no assists. After his performances, head coach Ronald Koeman is seriously thinking on axing him.
The problem that Barcelona has is that they want to recover the money invested for the player, and that is very hard nowadays. The club is facing a tremendous crisis, and they need money in soon. But thinking someone will put $20 million for Braithwaite after his failure pass through Barcelona is almost impossible.
During the last hours, it was said that coach Marcelo Bielsa wants him for Leeds United. As the forward has a contract remaining until June 2024, both parts should negotiate to reach an agreement. It is said that the Premier League side is thinking on paying up to $10 million for him.
Braithwaite had a very strange career, as he arrived Barcelona at the age of 29, when his career is going through its end. He started at FCM Juvenil at Denmark and then played at Esbjerg, Touloue, Middlesbrough, CD Leganés and finally Barcelona. If Bielsa wants, he could move to Leeds soon.
