The turbulence in the transfer market continues and as part of the reorganization at FC Barcelona, one name has become the center of attention. Clément Lenglet, the French defender at the center of the Catalan club’s separation plans, has now attracted interest from a new suitor: Juventus.
Although there has been speculation about the possibility of a move from Lenglet to Tottenham Hotspur, a new contender is now in the running for the player. The Italian team, a giant in Serie A, have expressed interest in the defender’s services.
Juventus are in the running for a departure from FC Barcelona
While the Tottenham option remains valid, Serie A seems to have positioned itself as a possible target for Lenglet. Although interest from Napoli has already been mentioned, Juventus have now emerged as a serious alternative. Juventus are reportedly considering a loan option as opposed to Barcelona’s desire for a direct transfer. Although this discrepancy could complicate negotiations, Barcelona could be ready to back down in order to downsize their squad.
Finding a new home for Lenglet is urgent for Barcelona. With the club focused on cutting their payrolls and freeing up resources for future acquisitions, the defender’s departure has become a priority. Although Barcelona would prefer a transfer, the option of a loan move is also on the table given the need to ease the financial burden.
With Lenglet’s contract running until 2026, his situation at Barcelona is becoming increasingly untenable. Under Xavi’s leadership, he doesn’t seem to fit into the team’s future plans, making his departure almost inevitable.
As the transfer market continues to boom, there is uncertainty about Clément Lenglet’s future. As Barcelona look for the best way to find a way out and ease their finances, Juventus emerge as a possible target. While no final decision has yet been made, it’s clear that Lenglet is on the way to pursuing a new direction in his career, be it in Serie A, the Premier League or wherever he chooses.
