One of the biggest shock transfers seen with Danish eyes is not far from to go through.
FC Barcelona will redeem Martin Braithwaites frikøbsklausul and give him new status as team-mate to Lionel Messi.
the transfer window is closed for the longest time, and it is therefore only because of a special rule, that the Spanish team has been allowed to act with nedrykningstruede Leganés.
Monday was given Barcelona the green light to find a substitute for Ousmane Dembélé, when he is expected out for more than five months. The choice has fallen on Braithwaite
Barcelona has chosen to redeem the dane frikøbsklausul at 134,5 million dollars, without Leganés have been able to do anything other than just to see. Madrid-the club that right now is second to last in La Liga with two points up to the right side of the line, do not download a replacement for their top scorer, as the rule is now.
The English fodboldskribent at The Guardian - Sid Lowe - don't understand much of the Spanish rule.
'If the rule's intent is good, is the use of it is not. It is an insurance for some which leaves others unprotected. The damage it can do to the innocent, can be irreparable', he writes.

The particular rule can therefore be seen as a gift to storklubberne, while the smaller clubs are the ones who pay the bill. A bill in the Leganés' cases can be very expensive at a relegation.
'Inequality is built into a system that is built on that small teams can be destroyed by other clubs bad luck and bad decisions, without the opportunity to find a solution', writes Sid Lowe.
Barcelona had, since the transfer window was open, the opportunity to replace Dembélé. Rodrigo Moreno of Valencia, was a possible replacement, while striker Cédric Bakambu from the best chinese variety was also reported to Barcelona.
Bakambu should even have been on the way to Barcelona, but when he had to stop over on the way to Spain, he was asked to return on. Read more about the bizarre story HERE.
Leganés have been in contact with La Liga in order to hear whether they must obtain a replacement for Martin Braithwaite.
- We heard from La Liga on Wednesday that the current rules do not allow us to buy a new player, say Leganés' sports director, Txema Indias to TV 2 Sport.
