Martin Braithwaite, the attacker needed by Barcelona

The long injuries suffered by two of Barcelona's main players, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele, have paved the way for Martin Braithwaite to become part of Quique Setien's team. Yes, Barcelona is given leeway to recruit new players outside the transfer window if there are 2 or more players in a position that has a long injury.

However, the former Barcelona player, Rivaldo stressed that there was no urgency that his team was recruiting new attackers, because Barcelona through the La Masia academy had many players who were worthy of being promoted towards the first team, but unfortunately management chose another path.

As reported by (21/02/20) "To be honest, I do not understand or agree with the Braithwaite transfer for several reasons. First, this transfer was carried out outside the transfer market," said Rivaldo quoted from Marca.

"I see no reason why Barcelona should buy a forward, who with all due respect, I doubt he is the player Barcelona needs," said the former Brazilian national team star.

"For some reason, Barcelona should be able to have players from La Masia instead of transferring Martin Braithwaite. I am more happy to have young players and get more minutes to play," said Rivaldo.
