5. Open up a new chapter for Umtiti and Lenglet

Although Barcelona will benefit a lot from the sale of Umtiti and Lenglet, the players will not suffer too much either. Umtiti has not been able to show his true form since 2018 and he needs a new chapter in his professional career. The Barcelona team are reportedly fed up with his injuries and Umtiti will benefit a lot by shifting to a team which will care about him. Similarly, Lenglet has failed to reach his true potential at Catalonia and maybe it is time for him to change the scenarios a bit. Both the players have been performing well below their level and they will not suffer from a change in clubs. A new chapter can start for the club as well as for the players departing from the club.
