FC Barcelona wants to bet on Clément Lenglet and will soon try to extend and improve his contract. The club has decided that the '15' is ahead of Samuel Umtiti, whom they could put on the market this summer
The FC Barcelona seems to have clear the priorities of face to the next course and to which will come afterwards. The culés want to reinforce the centre of the defence and is sounding a lot Pau Torres, promising central of the Villarreal that aspired to accompany to Sergio Bouquets in the defence of Spain in the Eurocopa. The Valencian would not be too expensive and neither would have a very high wage, by what from the club would see this very viable option.
But in addition to selling, the barcelonistas also could leave go out to one of the defenders that still are in staff. With Gerard Hammered like fixed, the victim would have to be or Samuel Umtiti or Clément Lenglet. According to the newspaper 'Sport', the ex of the Seville has come off well in the dispute and would be the intocable for the club. From the Barça believe more in the one of Beauvais that in of Yaoundé and therefore they could put in the market to the '23'.
Lenglet, therefore, would have the full confidence of the directive to be the central to title the campaign that comes. It can not say the same of Quique Setién, that until the moment has bet more by 'Big Sam' that by him. The santanderino has given him minutes to both and has them rotado since it arrived to the Camp Nou, but in the important parties almost always has chosen to the of African origin. Nevertheless, there are decisions that belong to the club, that to half and long term believes more in the possibilities of the ex of the Seville.
It is necessary to remember that Lenglet arrived to the Barça to be the acting of Umtiti, that until the past year was indisputable for Ernesto Valverde. The ex of the Lyon was one of the best of the world in his place and at all seemed to indicate that it went to fall in the forget. But his injury of knee commanded to the fret all and finish causing that it lost the place in favour of the ex of Nancy. In the time that was stopped, Clément did with the place and with the confidence of Valverde, that once recovered Samuel followed having the ex sevillista.
Setién Changed the roles and gave him more minutes to Umtiti, but the reality is that the bet of the Cantabrian has not seen translated in good results. Although the defender has showed some mejoría and has completed solvent performances, the team has fit more goals with him that with Lenglet. The '15' is not so brilliant as it was it his compatriot and his 'prevail' is far of the his, but is much more consistent, sure and regulate that this version of 'Big Sam'.
The Barça wants to improve and expand the agreement of Lenglet
The idea is to expand and improve the agreement of Clément, that arrived to the Barcelona with a wage very underneath of the role that has had these last campaigns. It has had moments to surrender to the level of the best of the world and in the club thinks that deserves that it bet by him on a long-term basis. With 24 years, the future of the defence of the Barça goes through his boots and the aim is that it consolidate like the leader of the defence now that Hammered faces his last campaigns.
