Transfer Rumour: Denmark international forward Braithwaite’s agent says ‘All these stories are false, Martin will continue in Barcelona’
“Martin Braithwaite plays in the biggest club in the world; he works with one of the biggest coaches in the world,” the Barcelona forward’s agent Hasan Cetinkaya has said in an interview with BT Sport.
“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 at the European Championship with some incredible statistics, and he will continue in Barcelona.”
As per reports, Brighton, West Ham and Wolverhampton are all eager to sign the Denmark international. Moreover, Jorge Mendes is believed to be ‘pushing’ Braithwaite to sign for Wolves.
“All these stories are false,” Cetinkaya added.
“Jorge Mendes has nothing to do with Martin Braithwaite; it is also false like all the other writings. Jorge Mendes does not have players in Barcelona; he has players in Wolverhampton, he can focus on, then I take care of my players in Barcelona.
“Why should Martin Braithwaite switch to Wolverhampton, and why should an agent who has no players in Barcelona try to get my player to Wolverhampton, even though I know Jorge Mendes has good connections to clubs like Wolverhampton? It’s a waste of everyone’s time.”
As Barca badly need to reduce their wage bill for the upcoming season, Braithwaite’s unwillingness to quit could turn out a huge problem for the Blaugrana.
