On Friday, we covered a report from the Catalan media which made it clear Barcelona are ready to compromise in negotiations for Clement Lenglet.

Having originally wanted more than €12m, the Blaugrana have been forced to collapse their claims, largely due to Tottenham being the only club in the race, or crawl, for his signature.

The Frenchman spent last season on loan at Spurs, yet the Premier League club had no intention of using the buying option they had.

Friday’s claims made it clear Barcelona needed to take what they could get, because the biggest issue was getting his wages off their accounts.

Friday’s edition of Sport states it’s only ‘logical’ that Barca accept a €5m offer from Tottenham, largely because of the issues stated above.

Lenglet isn’t the only player they’re looking to get rid of, and therefore pushing his deal over the edge is a good step in a longer process.

A €5m fee does seem like a bargain for Spurs, but it wouldn’t be a great surprise if it ends up even less.
