Sevilla will resort to TAS paying € 3.7M to Nancy for the sale of Lenglet to Barça

The Spanish club will claim that the center was not transferred to Barcelona, but it was the player himself who unilaterally terminated his contract by paying the clause.


Sevilla will appeal to the Court of Sports Arbitration (TAS) the decision by which FIFA forces it to pay 3.7 million euros to the French Nancy-Lorraine, the training club of the defender Clément Lenglet, as a percentage of the surplus value of the transfer from the international center to Barcelona. 222222

Sevilla signed Lenglet al Nancy in January 2017 in exchange for five million euros plus 12% of the surplus generated by a hypothetical transfer of the player, which was transferred in the summer of 2018 to Barcelona For 35 million, that is why FIFA understands that Sevilla members must pay the amount agreed to the Gauls. 2

The entity chaired by José Castro, however, understands that it is safeguarded from that obligation, since Lenglet was not transferred to Barcelona, but it was the player himself who unilaterally terminated his contract by paying the amount of his termination clause.22 22222

Sources of the Sevilla club have informed Efe that their legal services will enforce the record of Malian midfielder Seydou Keita, signed to the French Lens in 2007 and that, one year later, he left for Barcelona after the payment of ten million euros of its clause. 222222

On that occasion, as now, FIFA gave the reason in the first instance to the Lens, who claimed the payment of a percentage of the transfer, but the TAS estimated in its entirety the resource of Seville, which ended up saving that money
