Martin Braithwaite to join Valencia CF?

Martin Braithwaite to join Valencia CF? Valencia CF are supposedly in negotiations with FC Barcelona over the purchase of Martin Braithwaite. He is a Danish forward who joined FC Barcelona in 2020 on an emergency exception after the long term injury of Ousmane Dembele.

They paid off his release clause of 18 million euros and he has since featured 40 times for FC Barcelona and scoring 3 goals in the process. Since the arrival of Aguero from City to Barcelona this summer, they are looking to offload Martin as he is seen as an expensive substitute that will only be used sparingly. FC Barcelona are using Valencia's interest in the player to try and sway them to part ways with Gaya in what would be a player plus cash type of deal. They are hoping to pay Valencia CF 25 million euros, just as much as VCF need to balance the books for this year and give us Martin Braithwaite who they still value at 18 million euros.
