Although they say Barcelona could sell Braithwaite, the forward is keen to stay with the club.

As reports say, Barcelona could sell Martin Braithwaite, however, the 28-year-old forward intends to stay with the club for log.

Braithwaite came to Camp Nou as an emergency signee in February as Barcelona paid for his €18million release clause to get him as soon as possible.

According to recent reports, Barcelona intend to sell Braithwaite, however, the Denmark international whose contract is due in 2024 is keen to stay with the club until later.

"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," Braithwaite told ESPN.

"Right now, I just want to go and play and enjoy and win titles with this team because that's what I am here to do."

Braithwaite had made just three appearances for Barcelona before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The former Middlesbrough forward has set himself high goals with the Spanish giants, who were top of LaLiga when the campaign was stopped.

"For me, 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 for me one of the goals is to be able to say I played in one of the best Barca teams in a generation," Braithwaite said.

"I want people to be able to look back at the team I played in and say, 'Yeah, that was one of the best teams there have been in Barca's history'. That's a huge motivation for me and it comes with a lot of hard work, but I am willing to put in the work. I am just excited."
