Martin Braithwaite’s agent has been talking about his future and insists he will continue at Barcelona despite speculation the Denmark international could be sold.

Hasan Cetinkaya also blasted rumors about a possible move to Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Sport have reported that agent Jorge Mendes is “pushing” to send Braithwaite to Wolves, but Cetinkaya reckons the report is nonsense.

“All these stories are false,” he said. “Jorge Mendes has nothing to do with Martin Braithwaite; it is also false like all the other writings. Jorge Mendes does not have players in Barcelona; he has players in Wolverhampton, he can focus on, then I take care of my players in Barcelona.

“Why should Martin Braithwaite switch to Wolverhampton, and why should an agent who has no players in Barcelona try to get my player to Wolverhampton, even though I know Jorge Mendes has good connections to clubs like Wolverhampton? It’s a waste of everyone’s time.

“Martin Braithwaite plays in the biggest club in the world; he works with one of the biggest coaches in the world. From day one until now, everything has exceeded all expectations in terms of playing time in Barcelona and well-being at the club, and he is very happy. He was one of the best players at the European Championships with some incredible statistics, and he will continue in Barcelona.”

Wolves aren’t the only Prmier League club to have been linked with Braithwaite with West Ham also having been mentioned. There had been talk of Barca hoping to raise around €15 million by selling Braithwaite, but it seems he’s yet another player who has no intention of leaving.
