Agent denies rumours of a Wolves move for Barca forward

The agent of Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite has denied suggestions that his client is close to joining Wolves.

The Denmark star, 30, is one of several players to be linked with a Nou Camp exit this summer.

The Catalan giants need to reduce their wage bill and as such Braithwaite has been linked with a number of Premier League sides.



, Brighton, Burnley and Norwich are all thought to be interested.

But Braithwaite’s representative, Hasan Cetinkaya, has angrily denied the rumours.

Speaking to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo (via ESPN), he said: “Everything’s s***, all these stories are false.

“Jorge Mendes has nothing to do with Martin Braithwaite. Jorge Mendes has no players at Barcelona. He can focus on Wolves, but I take care of my players at Barcelona.

“Martin Braithwaite plays for the biggest club in the world and works with one of the most important coaches in the world.

“From day one until now, he’s exceeded expectations in terms of playing time and wellbeing at the club, and he’s very happy.

“He was one of the best players at the European Championship with incredible statistics, and he’ll continue with Barcelona.”

The player was rumoured to be a potential backup for Raul Jimenez at Molineux, but it seems Wolves will have to pursue alternative options in attack.

Braithwaite earned a surprise move to Barca in February 2020 due to a player shortage.

He’s since played 53 times for the club, scoring eight goals and registering four assists.

He has had to compete with the likes of , Antoine Griezmann and Ansu Fati for a starting spot in the last two seasons.

The Blaugrana still need to reduce their wage bill before they can announce Messi’s new long-term contract.

Ex-Liverpool man: Everton will be ‘stagnant’ under ‘difficult’ Benitez

Former Liverpool midfielder Jermaine Pennant has suggested that new Everton boss Rafael Benitez is not a “great man-manager” and that he was difficult to work with.

The Spaniard was recently confirmed as Carlo Ancelotti’s replacement at Goodison Park.

Everton have been busy in the transfer market ahead of the new season as They are also close to signing 



Pennant spent three years playing under between 2006 and 2009. He featured 81 times for them across all competitions.

The winger has been speaking about Benitez with . He claims that Steven Gerrard was “the player-manager” while the 61-year-old was in charge:

“Look, it’s different for every player, different players will react differently with Rafa.

“But in my eyes he wasn’t a great man-manager. His skills in that department were lacking.

“Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher have also made this publicly known as well, that they felt it was difficult.

“I felt it was difficult to approach him, have a conversation and maybe talk about certain situations on and off the pitch.

“He wouldn’t come up to you, he wouldn’t grab you by the side and have a chat about whatever you need to discuss. He kind of left it to Gerrard.

“Especially to big games, at half-time if things weren’t going very well, it wouldn’t be him pointing fingers and shouting instructions and telling you what needs to be done to win this game, it would have been Steven coming in giving you an effing and blinding.

“Playing back then, I wouldn’t want to annoy Gerrard first, and then my manager. Steven was the player-manager!

“I think every player will take it differently with him.”

Pennant went onto add that Benitez will be a “little big stagnant” at :

He continued: “Is he going to light it up at Everton? Is he going to take them to the next level? Personally I don’t think he will. Sorry Everton fans!

“He’s a legend at Liverpool for that famous game, coming back from 3-0 down in the Champions League, which was Gerrard-driven 100 per cent and I know that.

“After Liverpool you look where he’s been… Newcastle he didn’t really set them alight, he kept them afloat.

“I just feel he’s going to be a little bit stagnant at Everton.

“With the signings he’s made, again they’re free transfers and they’re not going to light the team up and take them to the next step. Are they going to make more signings? We’ll see.

“Rafa, I’ve got nothing against you, mate, but everyone’s got an opinion!”
