The Catalan club are said to be open to entertaining offers for a number of their players, and Clement Lenglet is understood to be one of them.

Clement Lenglet has dismissed rumors suggesting he could leave FC Barcelona this summer as he “does not see himself leaving” the club.

A squad clearout is expected at Camp Nou, with Barcelona reportedly looking to ease their delicate financial situation by cutting down the wage bill.

Eric Garcia’s arrival increases the competition for a spot in the heart of the Blaugrana defense, meaning it is likely the club let go of one of their center-backs.

Lenglet, who was far from his best in 2020/21, could be the one who gets sacrificed as reports suggest Barca would consider offers for the France international.

The 25-year-old, who signed a contract extension through to 2026 only last year, though is repulsive to the idea of departing Camp Nou.

“I do not see myself leaving,” responded Lenglet when asked about his future plans by Eurosport.

“I re-signed a new contract last season. I will be at Barca next season.”
