Mundo Deportivo are claiming that reported West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers target Martin Braithwaite will leave Barcelona under two conditions.
West Ham and Wolves interest
Both West Ham and Wolves have been linked with Barcelona forward Braithwaite.
Spanish publication Sport reported only today that West Ham and Barcelona have practically agreed on a transfer fee.
The report added that the Hammers are now trying to agree on a salary package with the 30-year-old Denmark international forward.
Martin Braithwaite stance
Mundo Deportivo are now reporting that Braithwaite actually wants to stay at Barcelona.
The forward knows that he is unlikely to get a bigger club than Barcelona.
However, there are two circumstances under which the 30-year-old will leave.
One – For ‘an interesting sporting project’.
Two – If the salary on offer is more than what he gets at Barcelona.
According to a report in The Daily Mail in June, Braithwaite earns £85,000 per week as salary at Barcelona.
Watch this space
Barcelona have financial problems, and there is a very good chance that they will be open to selling Braithwaite at the right price.
With Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay joining Barcelona this summer, Braithwaite will fall further behind in the pecking order.
The 30-year-old made 11 starts and 18 substitute appearances in La Liga and made two starts and four substitute appearances in the Champions League last season.
