Aston Villa will not complete permanent move for Clement Lenglet

Aston Villa have reportedly made a final decision on a potential permanent move for Clement Lenglet this summer.

Clement Lenglet has been on loan at Aston Villa this past season. But a report from Mundo Deportivo has claimed that Aston Villa will not complete a permanent move for the 28-year-old Barcelona outcast.

The West Midlands club are ready to let him return to his parent club after previously considering a permanent move. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops. The 28-year-old was a useful squad player for Aston Villa, and he could have been a quality acquisition for the right price.

He is versatile enough to operate in a back four as well as a back three. He can slot in as a backup left-back as well. Lenglet does not have a future at Barcelona, and it remains to be seen whether he can secure a permanent exit from the Spanish club at the end of the season.

Barcelona need to raise funds by selling players like Clement Lenglet

Barcelona are going through financial difficulties, and they will need to raise funds to bring in their own signings. Selling the French defender will help them raise funds in the summer, and it remains to be seen whether they can find a suitable destination for him.

There is no doubt that the 28-year-old Barcelona outcast is good enough to play at a high level and it remains to be seen where he ends up. He needs to join a club where he will get regular playing time.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa were quite vulnerable defensively in the final weeks of the 2023/24 season, and they will need to improve at the back, especially now that they are going to compete in the UEFA Champions League.

The West Midlands club have finished in the top four, and they will need quality players at their disposal in order to do well in Europe’s premier club competition next term. It will be interesting to see if Aston Villa can get rid of the fringe players and bring in quality additions in the coming weeks.
