La Liga: Barcelona Sign Leganes Striker For £15m
have announced the signing of former Middlesbrough striker Martin Braithwaite until June 2024.
Braithwaite joins from Leganes for £15 million.
A statement released by the club read:
“FC have paid the buy out clause of the player Martin Braithwaite and therefore he is no longer contractually tied to Club Deportivo Leganés.
“The cost of the clause is €18million.
“The player will sign a contract with the Club for the rest of the season and four more until 30 June 2024 with the buy out clause set at €300million.“
Recall that La Liga gave Barcelona the chance to sign a striker outside of the transfer window due to injuries.
However, the Denmark international will not be eligible to play in the Champions League this season due to squad registration rules.
