FC Barcelona are tired of their players refusing to leave the club this transfer window.

The Spanish side have earmarked a few players as ‘non-essential’ at the club and have actively tried to sell them to fund new signings.

Unfortunately for the Blaugrana, the players aren’t interested in giving up their status of being Barcelona players. One of those players is striker Martin Braithwaite.

The Spanish giants are now ready to “go to war” with Braithwaite after he refused to consider any offers from other clubs.

Barcelona even offered to give him a “letter of freedom” so that he could sign as a free agent with another club. Braithwaite, though, is demanding that the club pay the final two years of his contract before he leaves, Football Espana reported. With Barcelona’s finances being a sore point of late, the club aren’t keen on doing that.

Barca Universal reported that Barcelona are looking to take desperate measures in a bid to get rid of the player and punish him in the process.

Barca are considering terminating Braithwaite’s contract on the last day of the transfer window so that he can’t find another club to sign for before the window closes.

They are also looking at ways to avoid paying him compensation if they choose to terminate his contract.

Barcelona are finding that parting ways with players is harder than it looks.

Frenkie de Jong and Sergino Dest both refused to leave the club, and now Martin Braithwaite is doing the same.

As reported by Football Espana, Braithwaite has two years left on his contract with Barcelona and is insisting that the club pay out the full amount of his remaining contract before he leaves.
