‘Tottenham dream’ failed… return to barcelona
Tottenham Hotspur part ways with defender Clement Lenglet (27), who has been on loan from Barcelona.
On the 14th (Korean time), British Football Insider said, “Tottenham will not sign a full transfer contract with Langle, and will not try to extend the lease.”
He added that it was because of Lenglet’s troubles at Barcelona and the uncertain future of manager Antonio Conte at Tottenham.

When manager Antonio Conte needed a left-footed centre-back and failed to sign Alessandro Bastoni (Inter Milan) or Pau Torres (Villarreal), he turned to Lenglet.
Barcelona, who had classified Langle as out of power, wished for a complete breakup with Langle in the heart. One of the reasons for wanting a full transfer was that Langley is a high-paid player.
Lenglet got a lot of playing time in place of Ben Davies in the first half. In addition to his defensive abilities, he was credited with the precise kick that Conte needed.
However, after the World Cup break ended, his position completely changed. Starting with the match against Fulham, he missed three consecutive league matches, including matches against Manchester City and Leicester City. In all, Davis started in place of Lenglet.
Langle said in an interview at the time of joining, “I thought the present, not last summer, was a good time to join Tottenham,” and “I wish I could transfer completely,” but it is likely that he will give up his will at the moment.
With manager Conte’s demand for a left-footed defender in the summer transfer window, Tottenham will likely be looking for a quality left-footed defender to replace Lenglet. Bastoni and Torres, whose names have been going up and down for a long time, are on the list.
