Saudi Arabia on the cards for Braithwaite?

Barcelona player Martin Braithwaite is very close to terminating the contract that binds him to FC Barcelona until 30th June, 2024 to be accepted with a huge paycheck that would lead him to play in Saudi Arabia.

Al Nassr and Al Shabab are the two clubs bidding for the services of Braithwaite, the clubs want to push out Al Hilal, who have won the Saudi championship for the last three seasons.

Moreover, the news of the two Saudi clubs interested in the services of the Danish striker comes the same day that Celta has ruled out his signing.

Also, Barca head coach Xavi told Braithwaite that he was not counting on him in his new project. But Barça’s proposals for the Danish striker’s transfer were all met with stiff refusal.

Braithwaite’s departure will help Barça to reduce the wage bill for the club.

Óscar Mingueza, Samuel Umtiti, Neto Murata , Riqui Puig along with Martin Braithwaite was left out of the tour of the United States so that he could freely negotiate his departure from Barça.

It will be interesting to see Barcelona’s squad if Martin leaves Camp Nou, the Saudi Arabia deal could be most probably sealed in the coming few days.
