Key week to know the future of Clement Lenglet. The French central defender knows that he is not part of Xavi Hernández’s plans, so the best option is to look for a way out in this summer market that allows him to increase the number of minutes he has accumulated in the last two seasons.
The Gallic player totally lost his self-confidence playing for FC Barcelona, so it seems impossible that he can recover within the club, but many teams are aware that not so long ago he was a more than valid central defender for the elite.
As pointed from Sports world, the two teams that have made formal offers for the Blaugrana defender are Olympique de Marseille and Tottenham. Both want it in the form of a transfer, and even the English club would be willing to close a two-year loan, but the high figure charged by the Frenchman has caused both teams to demand that Barça assume part of the player’s file, a circumstance that does not convince at all to the culés.
Another reason why Lenglet urgently needs to leave Barcelona lies in the proximity of the World Cup in Qatar.
The former Sevilla player wants to guarantee his place in the French team, and he will not be able to do so if he continues to be the fourth or fifth central defender of a team. He needs to add minutes and he needs to do it now.
