Juan Laporta and his assistants are seeking to speed up exit processes and reduce the salary block so that Barcelona’s situation is in line with the new Financial Fair Play rules approved by the League and also in order to terminate the agreement with Messi to renew his contract, which expired on June 30 already. One of those Laporta, with Koeman’s approval, seeks to get rid of is Frenchman Clement Lenglet, who may soon leave.
Rafa Benitez’s arrival in the Premier League would mean a revolution for Everton. The coach intends to rebuild the team for the next season. The transformation will start from the back line, as the coach wants to give the role of defensive captain to Klement Lenglet. The goal of the former Real Madrid coach has been set: to bring the club back to the top of the standings and reach the European positions in the coming years.
The defender could finish in the English competition in the coming weeks. The Barcelona player did not have a good end to the season either with the club or with the French national team, and the new challenge could be positive for both the central defender and the English club. The coach has already requested his signature for the club. And considering that both Laporta and Coman are looking for the best option for his departure, his signature could be speeded up.
The Frenchman’s arrival is essential Following the apparent departure of Yerry Mina – after not a good fit for the team that created Benitez – Godfrey and Mason Holgate, signing with a central defender is essential to ensure a good standing in the top tier of English football.
Another alternative for Benitez is to sign Coulibaly, who has a salary that Napoli will have to get rid of after the economic crisis they are going through. In addition, the fact that Benitez has coincided with him in previous seasons is an added value for the coach.
