As Barcelona prepare to get rid of their unwanted players in the summer transfer window, they could face challenges in their endeavours.

While some stars like Samuel Umtiti might not attract a lot of suitors, there are a few other players on the roster who are flat out refusing to leave the club.

One such star, who has ruled out the possibility of an exit this summer is Martin Braithwaite. The 30-year-old, currently away on international duty with Denmark, recently exclaimed that he has no intentions of leaving Barça in the summer and will stay put and fight for his place.

However, as reported by SPORT, the Danish international has already been informed by the club that he does not feature in the plans of manager Xavi Hernandez, with his camp being told to find a new club for the forward.

The report further adds that Braithwaite already has a couple of proposals to leave Barcelona in the summer with two La Liga clubs in the form of Celta Vigo and Valencia tabling loan offers for the former Leganes striker.

Both Celta Vigo and Valencia have been linked with a move for the Dane for a while, with the latter even making enquiries for the 30-year-old during the January window as well. They have now presented offers to take the Denmark attacker on loan for the upcoming season.

Apart from Celta Vigo and Valencia, some Premier League sides are also looking at the situation of Braithwaite and might consider making a move in the summer.

However, the forward’s stance of not wanting to leave Camp Nou could pose an issue in Barcelona’s efforts to offload him.

The 30-year-old made it clear that he does not wish to lose the wages he currently earns and Barça believe that such an arrangement could be reached with some of the interested clubs, with the Catalans even prepared to contribute financially to move him on.

Whether Braithwaite remains a Barcelona player beyond the summer or joins any of the two La Liga sides that have made offers remains to be seen.
