Press sources revealed that Saudi clubs are interested in signing Barcelona striker Martin Braithwaite, whose future seems far from Catalonia.
The Danish player made his decision to leave Barca this summer, but he prefers to terminate his contract by mutual consent with the club first and then choose one of the offers presented to him, as he refused to move to the English Premier League as the Barcelona officials were planning.

The Spanish newspaper Sport indicated this morning that there was a huge Saudi financial offer for the 31-year-old that made him reconsider his accounts and his view of the offers he received and his previous desire to play in Madrid next season.
Sport did not reveal the identity of the Saudi club, which made the big bid for Braithwaite, who had joined Barca from Leganes for 18 million euros in January 2020.
Turkey’s Ekrem Konur stated that it is not about one Saudi club interested in obtaining the signature of Braithwaite, but rather two clubs.
The veteran journalist indicated that the Al-Nasr and Al-Shabab clubs are following up on the player’s situation, preparing to pounce on him and try to sign him as soon as his contract with Barcelona is terminated.
The player, who previously played in Denmark, France and England, played only 4 matches in the Spanish League last season, in which he scored two goals and made another, while he played a match in the King’s Cup during which he did not leave any imprint.
The total of Braithwaite’s matches with Barca reached 58 matches, in which he scored 10 goals and made 5, of which he played 6 matches in the Champions League, in which he scored 3 goals and provided two assists to his teammates.
The player capable of playing as a striker and winger and the one who took over the task of coaching Barca Xavi played only 22 minutes, 10 in the league and 12 in the cup.
