Barcelona have actually notified Leganes that they want to pay the EUR18 million set as the release clause in the agreement of Martin Braithwaite, according to Spanish reporter Guillem Balague.
With Luis Suarez out hurt and Ousmane Dembele out for the season, the Catalan club have actually gotten an unique consent to sign a forward outside a transfer window. A variety of names were thought about prior to head coach Quique Setien ultimately pickedBraithwaite Leganes naturally declined to work out, and Barcelona were hence required to pay the full rate and put the matter out of the hands of Leganes.
This advancement has actually now put Leganes in a tight spot. They are set to lose a crucial member of the team, without having the ability to sign a replacement themselves for the remainder of the season. To solve the problem, they will now attempt to do what Barcelona did– get the very same type of consent, to sign somebody outside a transfer window.
