In the prospect of finding a central defender capable of competing with Gérard Piqué and Samuel Umtiti, FC Barcelona leaders decided to recruit Yerry Mina during the last winter transfer window. But the Catalan leaders do not seem to have found satisfaction with the Colombian defender. That’s why they set their sights on Clement Lenglet, the defender of Sevilla FC.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barça leaders have reached an agreement with FC Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet.
Barça have found a central defender who can compete with Piqué and Umtiti
While the Catalan club had initially started on four tracks including those of Kalidou Koulibaly, Marquinhos, Matthijs de Ligt and Clément Lenglet. Finally, it is the Frenchman of 22 years who would have attracted the most attention of the Catalan leaders to strengthen the central hinge of FC Barcelona.
In its edition of the day, « Mundo Deportivo » announces that the FC Sevilla player has signed a 5-year contract with FC Barcelona. For his services, Josep Maria Bartomeu, president of FC Barcelona would have paid his release clause of 35 million euros.

As a reminder, since 2014 this former player of the AS Nancy knows a real hatching. Its margin of progress is also regularly monitored by many. After two full seasons in Ligue 2 and a half-season in Ligue 1, Lenglet joined FC Seville in the winter transfer window of 2016 for the sum of 5 million euros.
According to the digital newspaper El Desmarque, the French technician Zidane would also appreciate the profile of the central Sevillian defender. He also said that it would not be surprising to see Real on the offensive very quickly to enlist the player. But considering the speed with which Barça would like to bring the player into his club, it could be too late for Real Madrid.
