Barcelona are scheduled to conduct negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur about Clément Lenglet’s future, with the Catalan giants hoping to resolve his issue this week.
According to Mundo Deportivo, there have already been negotiations about Tottenham signing the Frenchman on a permanent basis.
Clément Lenglet was a good addition for Spurs, on loan last summer. He did a reasonable job in what proved to be a miserable campaign for the club.
Tottenham are set to meet with Barcelona about Lenglet this week.
According to previous reports from Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham want to sign Lenglet on a permanent basis. Lenglet, on the other hand, wanted to see who Spurs choose as Antonio Conte’s permanent replacement before making a decision on his future.
Of course, Ange Postecoglou’s arrival is now official. As a result, it appears that Barcelona is willing to hold discussions with Tottenham.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona wants to decide on Lenglet’s future this week. As a result, additional discussions with Tottenham have been scheduled.
Tottenham fans will probably not mind the idea of Lenglet staying if the price is a good one. Unfortunately, Spurs seem to have a lot of work to do on their squad this summer. And thus, keeping those who performed fairly well this past year is probably now a must.
Lenglet cost Barcelona £32 million. So Tottenham will surely walk away if Barca want to recoup most of that. But if there is a potential bargain to be had, it makes sense for Spurs to make a move.
The fact that Barcelona want the situation resolved so quickly is surely a positive sign on that front.
