It calls the attention that Clément Lenglet, the fifth more used player in the FC Barcelona this season, was however one of the worst paid of the staff. The central youngster French landed pertinent of the Seville does already two summers, and practically from his arrival began to show an immediate performance that, with the step of the time, has gone improving.

This progressive improvement has cost him to do with the definite and absolute titularity this season 2019-20, like couple of Gerard Hammered and thank you also to the bad state of form of Samuel Umtiti, the one who has lived a contrary dynamics to the one of his compatriot.

From here that, once they close other renewals prioritarias like the ones of Ter Stegen and Ansu Fati, will treat thoroughly the situation of Lenglet and will reward his performance with an improvement of agreement.

The bet is Lenglet and no Umtiti

The good performance of Lenglet is out of all doubt: this campaign 2019-20 has played a total of 42 parties and 3.238 minutes, only surpassed by Ter Stegen, Hammered, Messi and Griezmann.

Lenglet, when treating of an indisputable pillar in this Barça, will see ostensiblemente improved his agreement in the next dates. At the same time, it is possible that the FC Barcelona promote the exit of Samuel Umtiti to give off like this of his desorbitado wage and, besides, ingresar a good quantity of money that allow him fichar to a new central youngster and promising. Those are the aims... It will be necessary to see if they fulfil .
