Video: Barcelona Clement Lenglet transfer announcement

Barcelona have announced the completed transfer of French defender Clement Lenglet from Sevilla, and it’s a bit of a weird one.

Featuring a talking ball, discussing mainly the greatness of Barca star player Lionel Messi, there’s a brief mention of the fact that they’ve signed Lenglet at the end of the clip.

Honestly, that’s pretty much all it is. Watch the video below to see for yourself as football Twitter accounts take their creative transfer announcements to a whole new, slightly disturbing, level.

Lenglet should be a fine signing for the Catalan giants after impressing at Sevilla, coming in to give the club more options at the back.

Javier Mascherano left the Nou Camp last season, leaving Barcelona short of depth in that area, with players like Thomas Vermaelen and Yerry Mina not really looking up to scratch.

Lenglet should be an upgrade, but let’s hope he can recover from this strange introduction.
