La Liga champions Barcelona have strengthened their defence ahead of the new season with the signing of centre-half Clement Lenglet from Sevilla.

The 23-year-old Frenchman joins Barca in a five-year deal, with the club slapping a hefty £265million release clause on the defender.

However, in announcing their new signing on Instagram, the club produced an odd video which features a talking football and is roughly 95% about Lionem Messi, rather than poor Lenglet.

Oh, and it’s utterly appalling too…

‘A great baller… Enjoy Lenglet’. Enjoy him how, exactly? Responsibly? Is he an alcoholic beverage?

Still, France are certainly churning out a fine batch of young talent these days.
