“I am sure I am going to stay for even more than four and a half years. That’s how I see it in my head,” Martin told ESPN on signing an agreement as an emergency response to the Barcelona injury problems in the attack, whereas Dane wants to stick around for a long time.

Hopefully, the 28-year-old will play for Barcelona beyond his current deal, though he signed a contract that lasts until the summer of 2024. According to Braithwaite Right now he just wants to go out and play, enjoy and win titles with his current team because that is what he was brought here to do.

“At Barcelona, I am looking at all these legendary players that played here, and all the periods where they had some of the best teams, and so one of my goals is to be able to say I played in one of the best Barcelona sides of a generation,” says the Danish player.

Leganes was charged a minimum fee release bill of EUR 18 million for Braithwaite by Barcelona.  It left them without a chance to sign a replacement in the midpoint of a religious conflict since it did not go well with the club situated in Madrid.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Leganes. It was exceptional for me and the way they treated me when I had to leave.” Braithwaite said

“Sometimes, when you leave a club, you can leave with mixed feelings, but they totally understood me.

“They told me that this was a once in a lifetime chance and so I had to take it.

“Of course, they felt it was not fair they could not go out and get a replacement, which I understand, but at the end of the day they were really nice to me.”
