FC Barcelona continue their conquest of attempting to comply with financial fair play, even if they must make unwanted sales at a point. Having been given an objective to make space within their overall financial budget, they aim to do so by clearing out wages and selling off players, with a target of totaling around €100 million ideally.

However, as Barcelona attempt to sort out various players and separate those who are “untouchables” in terms of being sold and those that are not, recent reports from SPORT suggest the Catalans may already have their first sale lined up.

This player in question is none other than French central defender Clement Lenglet, currently on loan at Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur. The player does not originally have a purchase option in his current loan deal, but inside reports and negotiations would care to show that the English side has thus far been well pleased with the efforts, ethics, and contributions of the player.

Insisted primarily upon by Antonio Conte, who has now parted ways with the club, Spurs still believe and seem to count on Lenglet’s continuity beyond simply Conte’s stay due to solid internal reviews of the player.

The market relating to left-footed central defenders is quite narrow and does not provide a lot of room to operate. In comparison, Lenglet provides Spurs with an outlet that has become familiar with them by now and would not cost exorbitant amounts of money to purchase.

As it stands, Barcelona would demand a value of around €12-15 million, and should Spurs accept the package it would also automatically help the Catalans to open further space up within their wage bill as well consequently. A deal between the two parties could prove to be beneficial for both sides partaking in the transfer.
