Even as a Chelsea fan, you will probably have heard about the news that Tanguy Ndombélé wants to leave Tottenham at the end of the season.

The Frenchman isn’t happy with José Mourinho and has told the Portuguese manager as much, making it clear he no longer wants to play under him.

This has caused speculation, which was already circling a bit before this, to reappear about Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona being interested in the former Lyon star.

However, every club needs a plan B, and Le Parisien explain the Ligue 1 champions’ is Tiemoué Bakayoko, currently still under contract at Chelsea.

It’s said the French club ‘haven’t completely discarded’ the option of moving for the defensive midfielder, who ‘dreams of joining Neymar’s team’.

Bakayoko’s entourage is reportedly ‘in regular contact’ with Leonardo, Paris Saint-Germain’s technical director, who was the one to bring him to Milan in 2018.

Down Chelsea’s end, the Stamford Bridge club ‘don’t really want to keep’ their player, and he ‘could be loaned out’, which would ‘help out PSG’s finances’.

Le Parisien say this wasn’t really of interest to the French club a month and a half ago, but seeing how things are evolving in the world of football in this near post-Covid-19 pandemic era, you take what you can get.
