Barcelona have made a move for Martin Braithwaite.
Leganes head Moreno confirmed a Barcelona approach.
The La Liga giants have been given the permission, a special grant to sign players after the shutting down of the transfer window. Moreno appearaed less than pleased as his team are struggling down in the 19th place and they do not want to lose another important player now.
“Yesterday [Monday] afternoon they called and contemplated this situation,” Moreno told reporters on Tuesday. “They only made contact once.
“The truth is that we are very worried. After what happened to us with En-Nesyri, now what happens with Braithwaite … staying in LaLiga gets more complicated every day. In these next hours we will know what happens, yes or no.
“I don’t know if anyone will come from Barcelona today. The player has a day off and we have not talked to him.
“I understand why Braithwaite would go to Barca, I would too. But of course, we are not going to negotiate anything. They pay his clause, or he stays at Leganes.
“I can understand that Barca do this if the law allows them to, but I thought that they couldn’t sign an active player, only one free agent. I was surprised.”
