Barcelona’s young defender, Clement Lenglet is reportedly in demand by a number of clubs, especially Inter Milan. The Italian Serie A giants are believed to be trying to recruit the player next summer.
For information, the 24-year-old defender joined Barcelona in the 2019 summer transfer market, where he was bought from Sevilla. Lenglet then became a Gerard Pique duet in the heart of El Barca’s defense.
But the success of Lenglet through the Barcelona main squad can not be separated from the fact that Samuel Umtiti, who had been a mainstay suffered injuries. In other words, it is possible that Lenglet will be eliminated once Umtiti returns from injury.
So it’s only natural if speculation arose that claimed that this situation would be exploited by a number of clubs, including Inter Milan.
On the one hand, the Nerazzurri are in danger of losing Milan Skriniar. The Slovak defender was recently rumored to be the target of a number of European giants. In other words, the recruitment of Clement Lenglet could be an anticipatory step for Inter Milan.
So, what does Clement Lenglet say about this speculation? He can only say that he is happy in Barcelona.
I am happy to be here, want to continue playing and win titles. Let’s see what happens,”
“Of course, we are not very sure about the Covid situation, because it has been very difficult for everyone and we do not know what will happen in the coming months, but I am happy here and we’ll see what will happen. Lenglet said to Mundo Deportivo.
If even Samuel Umtiti eventually recovered and was again made a mainstay, Lenglet was determined to look good and could be the main choice again.
I continue to work to play every game. I think in the matches that I have played, I have done a pretty good job.
My job is to make things difficult for the coach so when he thinks of the team at night, he has to make difficult decisions. He said.
La Liga this season will start again on 12 June, Barcelona will face Real Mallorca on 15 June.
