‘RMC Sport’, ensures that the signing of Clément Lenglet for Olympique de Marseille is stalling

The French do not want to pay the high salary of the central defender

In a strange and fleeting operation before leaving the post of president of the FC Barcelona in 2020, Josep Maria Bartomeu, renewed four players in one fell swoop, are the cases of Marc-André Ter Stegen, Frenkie de Jong, Gerard Piqué and Clement Lenglet. The case of this last player was the most notorious, since he was not living his best moment and it was renewed until 2026. Now, the 27-year-old French central defender intends to collect all the salary that was signed for him in that renewal, and no club seems willing to pay him.

The door of Marseille begins to close

This has become a big problem. The interest of Olympic Marseille it begins to evaporate because of the high salary, and Barça’s greatest asset to “take out” Lenglet seems further away every day. So he assures ‘RMC Sport‘, where they still haven’t given up on the operation, but if they see it very far away, and that is that the only option that the Marseille team could come up with would be a transfer in which the Blaugranas paid a large part of the defender’s record, or the player himself decided to lower that part of his salary, two things that seem unlikely today, but when the market advances, they could be put on the table.
