Tottenham vs Man United vs Juventus

The race to sign Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele appears to be heating up.

According to Telefoot reporter Julien Maynard, Tottenham, Man United and Juventus are all vying for Ndombele’s signature.

With that being said, Maynard has also confirmed that, so far, no club has closed an agreement.

Moreover, fans of those clubs might have to wait a little longer for a resolution in this transfer saga, as Ndombele is now “taking time to think”.

What about PSG?

The Telefoot reporter also commented on links between PSG and Ndombele.

While PSG have shown interest in the Lyon midfielder, the Ligue 1 champs haven’t made any serious move to close a deal.

Spurs have a €25m difference of opinion

On Wednesday, the Guardian reported that Tottenham value Ndombele at €50 million.

As for Lyon, they are looking to pocket €75 million from any sale.

So will these clubs manage to reach a compromise? The Guardian suggest that that’s unlikely:

The problem for (Tottenham will be negotiating with the Lyon chairman, Jean-Michel Aulas, who is as notorious as (Daniel) Levy for driving hard bargains.

Moreover, Tottenham have alternative targets in mind, if they can’t land Ndombele. The Guardian report:

Spurs have held talks with the representatives of Ajax’s Donny van de Beek and Roma’s Nicolò Zaniolo.

The 22-year-old has made 96 appearances across all competitions, scoring four and assisting 16.
