The feud between Martin Braithwaite and FC Barcelona has been well documented throughout the course of the summer transfer window.
The Dane was one of the victims of the club’s lavish policies in the market this summer that saw them bring in the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferran Torres and Robert Lewandowski.
Their additions have put Braithwaite trailing in the pecking order, with virtually no chance of making any breakthrough in the starting eleven.
The entire ordeal, coupled with certain off-the-pitch treatments, have raised the animosity between Braithwaite and the club. Barça have hidden no desire to sanction his exit as well, but that is where the situation gets complicated.
The player has resisted attempts to move him away from Camp Nou, as part of his revenge on the club for supposedly mistreating him.
But Barcelona are not taking any prisoners and are prepared to terminate his contract, in order to make some much-needed space in the squad. The sale of Braithwaite could go a long way in fixing that issue and according to Fabrizio Romano, he is already close to terminating his contract at the club.
Although the official contract termination cannot be complicated before tomorrow, the deal is set to be agreed. It will prompt Braithwaite to find a new club, preferably by the end of the month. This has been reported by Gerard Romero (h/t Fabrizio Romano).
The reliable Italian journalist has relayed reports suggesting Braithwaite will announce his new club tomorrow. He has not had much luck convincing Barcelona, but he has no shortage of suitors.
A host of Spanish clubs have already expressed the desire to snap him up by the end of the month, largely due to his relatively decent record in La Liga. His status as a free agent soon help him gain a new deal as well, although it will be interesting to see if the striker moves to other leagues.
