Tanguy Ndombélé has not enjoyed a good debut season with Tottenham Hotspur.
José Mourinho was publicly critical about the midfielder in March and there were claims the 23-year-old’s relationship with his manager is poor, which is why he wants to leave the club in the summer.
Le10 Sport claims the Frenchman and the ex-Chelsea boss initially couldn’t find the ‘right method’ to click, but after trial and error, the two are trying to ‘start on the right foot’.
The Portuguese tactician believes the former Lyon man can be a key player in his plans at the north London club.
Spurs’ ‘primary objective’ is to retain the player as they believe he has the potential to become one of the best players in the Premier League.
Tottenham spent a club-record €60m to acquire Ndombélé’s services. The report, however, states the English club will study an offer, if the money offered is more than what they paid for him.
Even if Mourinho is counting on the midfielder for the next season, it’s claimed Spurs’ leaders will decide to sell, provided the offer received is in excess of €60m.
Paris Saint-Germian and Barcelona are discussed as potential suitors for Ndombélé. For PSG, only the idea of a loan deal would appeal to them, but it doesn’t fall in line with the English club’s demand to sanction the transfer.
