Barcelona are currently working hard to alleviate their current financial stress and situation. Their current financial troubles have prevented them from announcing the extension of their talisman in Lionel Messi.
Having said that, it is only a matter of time before the renewal of the Argentine is announced, and that should not be a cause for concern for Barcelona and their fans. The striker is set to stay at Camp Nou, and Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have also given up on their desire to sign the 34-year-old.
It is understood that a number of key players would be shown the exit door at Barcelona, given the club’s immediate need to raise funds and the underwhelming performances put up by the former La Liga champions in the last two years.
Clement Lenglet had one of his worst seasons in a Barca shirt the last term and could be walking out of the exit door this summer. While the Blaugrana are not said to be all-in for selling the 26-year-old, they are unlikely to say no to an appealing offer.
It is understood that the centre-back has drawn attention from West Ham, Everton, and as Sport reports, AS Roma. The Spanish publication adds that the Italian outfit has made an offer worth £15 million for the Frenchman services, but his current club is unwilling to accept anything less than £25 million.
The defender is likely to stay, but the same cannot be said about his national teammate in Samuel Umtiti, who is linked with a move to Roma as well.
It is believed that Barcelona are eager to sell the Frenchman and free up their wage bill. He is said to earn around £11 million per year at Barcelona while his market value has dropped down to £10 million.
