The Danish striker will be unveiled later on in the day where he will be presented to the press at 7.15pm local time. The Catalan giants were granted permission to sign an emergency striker after being left with just three forward to carry them through to the end of the season – one of which is just 17. As a result, the Catalan giants have paid Leganes Braithwaite’s release fee of £16m immediately, in order to have him available for the weekend. The move has left Leganes incensed by the unfair stipulation that they would be unable to bring in a replacement of their own. Leganes chief Martin Ortega said: ‘We consider that there is a regulation that is unfair, from which Barcelona has benefited. The one who is damaged by this is Leganes’ Read Also: Football analysts tell Barcelona to sign Chukwueze as Dembele replacement The Danish striker has netted six goals and provided one assist for struggling Leganes across 24 La Liga appearances this season. Barcelona welcome Eibar to the Nou Camp on Saturday, when the former Middlesbrough man could make his debut. Braithwaite scored just nine times in 40 appearances during his two-year stint at Middlesbrough, having joined the club from Ligue 1 side Toulouse in 2017. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Barcelona currently have Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez both out injured for the forseeable future. Dembele has been ruled out of action for six months with a hamstring tear after undergoing surgery in Finland last week while Suarez is unlikely to return this season. The green light was given to sign Barcelona on Monday morning to sign a replacement after the committee confirmed the injury as a long-term lay-off, which La Liga regulations stipulate as an issue that will keep a player out for at least five months.center_img Kenneth Omeruo’s teammate Martin Braithwaite has completed his £16million move to Barcelona from Leganes.

Bleach with some final words of advice

first_imgHall of Fame columnist, Badger alum and occasional University of Wisconsin professor Len Shapiro utilizes a rolodex of maxims when teaching his sports journalism course, and in my final column for the Badger Herald, one in particular comes to mind.“You will be rewarded for showing up.”Now, Shapiro was making the point that a good journalist will always make the extra phone call, drive 50 minutes to see the high school game and in general just not take the easy way out. Good solid advice for any career, really.But it might apply to Wisconsin students even more prominently.As any good SOAR leader will tell you, this university and city has just about anything that an incoming freshman would like to try. We have three revenue sports at the top of their game, a plethora of clubs for all interests and, yes, two daily student newspapers.**Mandatory pitch on behalf of the BH: This place really is awesome. I am trying to avoid the heartfelt farewell column that you, the reader, don’t really care about. But seriously, if you have any interest in writing, expressing your opinion or just generally pissing people off, come to the Herald. You will not regret it. I love you guys.All you have to do is show up. Several examples from this year alone prove it.For the Ohio State football game, tickets were being sold online for $300-$400. It was enough to pay for a student’s entire season ticket package.Theoretically, I can understand the temptation to cash in one game to pay for the rest.Practically, those who sold their OSU tickets are abject morons.From the very first kickoff – bless you David Gilreath, you finally brought one back – to the rushing of the field, it was the most exciting UW sporting event since … well … ever. No one in attendance will ever be a part of 80,000 people simultaneously enjoying that same level of euphoria ever again.Unless you are one of the vultures buying tickets solely to sell them – dare I make a “Worst People On Campus Joke Here”? – what was the point of buying season tickets if not hoping for just a chance to be a part of a moment like that.And all you had to do was show up.For basketball, the story repeated itself. The No. 1 undefeated Buckeyes came to town, and scalping prices skyrocketed. For those who missed the game, all Jordan Taylor did was submit THE greatest performance of a Badger basketball player ever. And I mean ever-ever.If there is anything to learn from Ohio State besides the jersey-to-tattoo monetary scale, it is just come to the damn game. In 10 years I will still remember taking down No. 1 Ohio State twice. I wonder if the scalpers will remember the cheap beer they bought with their haul?The tour guide speeches of limitless opportunity don’t lie when it comes to Wisconsin. Be it snow days, protests, the Terrace or a good old-fashioned ass-whupping of Ohio State, Madison provides memories that created the phrase the “good ‘ol days.”Just make sure you are there to see it.Michael is graduating with a degree in journalism and history.
