Martin Braithwaite has been linked to a transfer from Barcelona to Wolves, but his agent Hasan Cetinkaya has said he will stay with the Spanish giant.
Martin Braithwaite’s agent launched a furious attack on Jorge Mendes after his client was linked to a move to the Wolves.
Hasan Cetinkaya has denied the Danish international’s transfer from Barcelona to Molineux, saying Mendes, who has close ties to the Premier League club, has no reason to interfere with his player’s career.
Braithwaite has been the subject of speculation about his club’s future in recent weeks after an impressive campaign in Euro 2020.
Rumors that the star could leave Barça have intensified in recent days after it was reported that the Spanish giants had made him available this summer.
Mail Online claims that Barça tried to convince the Lobos to sign the player, but their agent vehemently denies the transfer.
Cetinkaya told BT newspaper: “Jorge Mendes has nothing to do with Martin Braithwaite, he is wrong like all the other writers too. Jorge Mendes has no players in Barcelona. In Wolverhampton he can concentrate but I take care of my players in Barcelona ”
“Why should Martin Braithwaite move to Wolverhampton, and why would an agent who has no players at Barcelona try to bring my player to Wolverhampton, even though I know Jorge Mendes has a good relationship with clubs like Wolverhampton? For everyone.” Martin Braithwaite plays for the biggest club in the world, he works with one of the most important coaches in the world. From day one until now, everything has surpassed all expectations in terms of playing time at Barcelona and well-being at the club, and he is very happy.
“He was one of the best players in the last European Championship with incredible statistics and he will continue in Barcelona.”
Barcelona has transfer window problems due to financial problems caused by the pandemic
They are trying to keep Lionel Messi and would have been offered a new five-year contract.
However, to pay for the new contract, they will have to separate from other talents, namely Antoine Griezmann.
The French international was to be traded for a one-season loan to Atlético de Madrid Saul Niguez, but the deal fell through after neither team managed to reach an agreement on the payment.
Now there are rumors that Griezmann could be on loan to a Premier League club, with interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.
United top Barça’s list, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team may not want to pay a large sum for the player after spending £72.9 million to sign Jadon Sancho.
