Unwanted Minted Barcelona Player Martin Braithwaite Refuses To Leave Club Unless They Pay Him What He Is Owed

Barcelona are annoyed with striker Martin Braithwaite for not leaving the club, because he wants to be paid the wages they've promised him.

The summer signings at Barcelona have led to huge amounts of confusions fans, as no one can quite understand where all their money has come from.

Frenkie de Jong was expected to leave in order to ease their financial problems but he's still there, the spending is still going and, even if he does eventually go, Bernardo Silva is expected to replace him.

One of the sticking points with the Dutchman leaving is him having the cheek to want the £17 million in delayed wages and bonuses thar Barca owe him, and he's not the only one.

According to SPORT, the Spanish giants want Braithwaite to leave, with the striker having accepted that he has no role in the team and is ready to go.

However, he won't be forced out of the club on their terms, after struggles to find a buyer for the former Middlesbrough and Leganes forward.

The 31-year-old has two years left on his contract and with no prospective buyers, the Catalan club were hoping that he would agree to leave for free.

They were hoping that they could agree a compensation package for the player but he wants to be paid his full two years of wages, that they would owe him.

It makes more sense for the club to come to an agreement with the player otherwise his wages will count towards their La Liga wage cap for the next two seasons.

Braithwaite does deserve the money that is contractually owed to him but the striker is actually surprisingly the richest player at the club.

The Danish international owns real estate in the United States worth €250 million, along with his uncle, he also owns a fashion brand and a restaurant, all boosting his €4 million-a-year wages.

Perhaps he can lend Barcelona a bit of money, with the club having to activate three 'financial levers' in order to carry on spending big this summer.

Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie have already joined the team this summer.
