Barcelona announced the news of Braithwaite's on its official website on Monday, September 13th, 2021. The Dutch player is expected to undergo knee surgery after he suffered a knock during the last International break.

The Catalan club is going into the rest of the season with a depleted team, having lost Lionel Messi because of financial fair play rule and then Sergio Aguero ruled out for ten weeks after he picked up an injury in training before the start of the season.

The first-team player, Martin Braithwaite, has a femoropatellar injury in his left knee, which has not responded to conservative treatment.

The Danish striker will undergo surgery in the coming days. The club will publish a new injury update when the process has taken place. The Danish international has made three appearances in the league so far this season, totalling 226 minutes.

On the opening day of the season against Real Sociedad at Camp Nou, the striker scored twice and provided an assist for another goal.

According to reports, the striker is expected to be sidelined for the rest of the year. Barcelona will hope Aguero gets back from injury sooner than he is expected to be out of the game.
