Barcelona want €15m from Bayern Munich for Clement Lenglet in January

Clément Lenglet is an option for Bayern Munich in the January transfer window.

Barcelona aims to offload Clement Lenglet to Bayern Munich in the upcoming January transfer window, setting a €15 million price tag for the defender. The Catalan club, keen to secure Lenglet’s departure, has indicated the willingness to negotiate if Aston Villa, where Lenglet is currently on loan, agrees to terminate the loan deal prematurely.

Reports suggest that despite Lenglet’s loan spell at Aston Villa, Barcelona actively seeks a permanent departure for the center-back. Bayern Munich has emerged as a potential destination for Lenglet, with the German giants displaying interest in acquiring the services of the French defender.

Barcelona’s motivation to offload Lenglet is two-fold, to recoup funds and alleviate the burden of his substantial salary from their wage bill. While the club remains open to negotiations, its primary objective is to secure a swift departure for the 27-year-old defender in the upcoming transfer window.

Clement Lenglet, the French defender, has experienced a notably subdued season in the Premier League, having amassed zero minutes of playtime so far. This statistic reflects his minimal involvement in domestic league matches, drawing attention to his limited role within Aston Villa’s squad despite his extensive contract that stretches until 2026.

Lenglet’s exclusivity to the Europa Conference League stands out, with all his appearances confined to this tournament. Although he has actively contributed to these fixtures, his absence from Premier League action raises inquiries about his adaptability and role under Villa’s management.

The 28-year-old, initially loaned from Barcelona, aimed to rejuvenate his career at Aston Villa following Tyrone Mings’ unfortunate injury. However, his impact on the team’s Premier League campaigns needs to be more consistent.
