Clement Lenglet, the French defender currently on loan at Barcelona, may soon find himself sold by the Spanish club during the upcoming summer transfer window. Reports suggest that Lenglet is keen to sign a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur, but with one major condition: he wants to meet the English team’s next manager before making it official.
Tottenham Hotspur have already initiated talks with Barcelona regarding Lenglet’s future, with a potential transfer fee of €15-20 million on the table. However, according to insiders at ‘Mundo Deportivo’, this deal may be delayed due to Lenglet’s desire to ensure he will receive sufficient playing time in the upcoming season.
Lenglet’s desire to meet with Tottenham’s next manager before signing a new contract is a key point of contention. The 27-year-old center-back is reportedly concerned about the lack of European competition next year, emphasizing the importance of finding a team where he can continue to develop his skills.
While Lenglet is currently under contract with Barcelona until 2026, the club may choose to sell him in order to support their needs for the upcoming season. Ultimately, the talented defender is seeking a new destination where he can thrive and achieve his full potential.
