Barcelona’s defender, Clement Lenglet, has seen limited playing time at Aston Villa this season, sparking interest from Bayern Munich. With only 450 minutes on the field, Lenglet might be seeking a solution in January, and Bayern seems willing to consider his signing.
Barcelona has set a selling price of 15 million euros for Lenglet, as reported by the Sport newspaper. The Catalan club aims to recoup as much money as possible and ease the player’s associated wage burden. Barcelona is open to negotiations with Bayern.
Barcelona Sets Lenglet’s Price at 15 Million
While Barcelona staunchly held its 15 million euros valuation in the summer, it is now reportedly willing to accept an offer of 10 million euros plus variables for Lenglet. However, the deal would only be accepted as a permanent transfer, not a loan.
The connection between Lenglet and Bayern also receives backing from a recommendation by Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur. Kane, who values Lenglet’s professionalism, had suggested his signing last season. Despite a standout season at Tottenham, negotiations did not come to fruition.
Barcelona, aiming to rectify past decisions, sees Lenglet’s sale as an opportunity to alleviate the club’s finances. Although the defender has had solid performances, he has not made the impact expected, and his departure could benefit both the player and the club. As Barcelona continues to manage the aftermath of previous administrations, the sale of Lenglet emerges as a potential solution for both parties.
