Barcelona contracts with Braithwaite outside the transfer window

Barcelona -ALSharqiya February 20: Barcelona signed Denmark striker Martin Braithwaite from Leganes rival for 18 million euros ($ 19.43 million) after obtaining permission from the League to join a player outside the transfer period and said the Spanish champions in a statement On Thursday he paid the penalty clause in the player's contract and will join the club with a contract until June 2024 and a penal clause of 300 million euros. Barcelona, ​​the 28-year-old Danish international, will be presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Thursday. Barcelona has applied to join a player outside the transfer window due to the absence of his French striker Othmane Dembele for six months after undergoing surgery to treat a posterior thigh muscle injury. Barcelona decided not to sign a striker in the transfer window in January after Luis Suarez moved away four months after knee surgery but became in need of another striker after French international Dembele had a torn thigh muscle. Dembele will be out for six months after undergoing surgery this month, and unlike other major leagues in Europe, clubs in Spain can bring players outside of the transfer window in special circumstances. Braithwaite began his career with the Danish Esbjerg and later moved to the French Toulouse and then the English Middlesbrough as he played in Bordeaux on loan. Braithwaite participated in 39 games with the Danish national team, including four matches in the 2018 World Cup. The striker joined Leganes on loan in January 2019, and then moved to him permanently for five million euros, according to press reports last June. The departure of Braithwaite will further weaken Leganes, taking the penultimate position in La Liga and scoring only 18 goals in the league this season. Braithwaite scored six of Leganes' goals. Leganes had to give up its main attackers since the start of the new year after the departure of Youssef al-Nossiri in January after Seville paid the penalty clause of his contract, which amounts to 20 million euros.
