Could Barcelona’s Lenglet potentially join Ronaldo at Al Nassr?
According to reports from ‘Mundo Deportivo’, FC Barcelona is currently in negotiations for Clement Lenglet to leave the club and join Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia. While the transfer fee may not be significant, Barcelona will be able to save money on his wages.
It is clear that Lenglet’s days at Barça are coming to an end. He has not played a single minute during the pre-season, which strongly suggests that Xavi does not have him in his plans for the upcoming 2023-24 season. The club is actively seeking a way for him to leave, and one potential destination is Saudi Arabia, specifically Al Nassr.
Reports indicate that negotiations are taking place to secure Lenglet’s move to Al Nassr, where he could potentially join the ranks of players like Cristiano Ronaldo or Marcelo Brozovich. While the transfer fee may not be significant, Barcelona sees this as an opportunity to offload his high salary, which will help alleviate their wage bill.
However, details of the offer from Al Nassr have not been disclosed by the Catalan newspaper. It is well-known that Saudi Arabia is not lacking in financial resources, and Lenglet could potentially receive a substantial salary if the transfer goes through.
Ultimately, the success of this operation hinges on Lenglet’s approval. The offer presented by Al Nassr may play a crucial role in convincing the Frenchman to venture into this league that is currently attracting numerous star players.
