The Danish forward isn’t helping Barcelona when it comes to his exit

Martin Braithwaite and Barcelona seem to be involved in a high-stakes game of poker.

The Blaugrana are pushing for the 31-year-old’s exit this summer, but so far, he’s made it clear he won’t do so willingly.

Martin Braithwaite and Barcelona seem to be involved in a high-stakes game of poker.

The Blaugrana are pushing for the 31-year-old’s exit this summer, but so far, he’s made it clear he won’t do so willingly.

Even the threat of missing out on the World Cup hasn’t phased the striker.

Barcelona currently has too many attacking options in their squad, with Xavi even leaving him out of the team for their trip to the USA.

Management had been hoping those two weeks would provide Braithwaite with the time needed to sort out his future, but that hasn’t been the case.

Although the former Leganes player has an offer from Saudi Arabia on the table, he is still reluctant to leave.

He wants everything

Barcelona has considered terminating Braithwaite‘s contract, but so far, he’s made it clear he wants to be paid the full two years remaining on his contract.

As a result, Barcelona is ready to increase the pressure on Braithwaite, though they know they can’t go too far or risk the player filing a complaint.

Meanwhile, LA Galaxy sign Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig on a three-year deal

Los Angeles Galaxy has announced the signing of 22-year-old midfielder Riqui Puig from Barcelona.

Barcelona coach Xavi did not include Puig in the team’s preseason as fell well out of favor and the club has now let him leave for free.

Puig was once a very highly-rated prospect after joining Barcelona’s academy in 2013. He made his senior team debut in 2018 as a substitute in a 4-1 win over Cultural Leonesa in the Round of 32 of the Copa del Rey.

He would go on to make 60 appearances with the club tallying two goals and 10 assists.

Puig has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract that includes a buy-back clause for Barcelona, as well as a 50 percent sell-on fee.
