Braithwaite keen to extend his Barcelona stay

Braithwaite keen to extend his Barcelona stay

Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite says he is keen to remain with the Catalans for the full length of his contract. 

Braithwaite signed for the Catalans from Leganes in February as an emergency signature for Barcelona. The 28-year-old came in as a replacement for Ousmane Dembele and Luiz Suarez who were on the sidelines through injuries. According to reports, the Danish striker could be sold during the next transfer window as he is regarded as surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp. 

"I am sure I am going to stay even more than four and a half years. That's how I see it in my head. Right now I just want to go out and play, enjoy and win titles with this team because that is what I was brought here to do," he told ESPN. 

"At Barcelona, I am looking at all these legendary players that played here, and all the periods where they had some of the best teams, and so one of my goals is to be able to say I played in one of the best Barcelona sides of a generation."

Since making his switch to the La Liga giants, Braithwait has made a single start and two substitute outing for the Blaugrana.
