Ndombele’s Spurs stint
Tanguy Ndombele joined Tottenham from Lyon in the summer of 2019, for a club-record fee.
However, despite his hefty price-tag and superb previous displays in France, Ndombele endured a tough debut campaign in north London.
The midfielder’s fitness looked a real issue for much of the season, with Jose Mourinho having even publicly hit out at Ndombele last year.
However, the current campaign has seen the Spurs faithful finally provided with a glimpse of what Ndombele is truly capable of.
The 24-year-old has featured 44 times this season, notching six goals and four assists in the process.
Granted, he has not been overly impressive in recent weeks, but there is clearly a top player there, which any potential new Spurs boss would likely be keen to work with.
Real Madrid linked with Tottenham’s Ndombele
Nevertheless, Ndombele, who is tied down in north London until 2025, is now being linked with a move away from Spurs.
According to Football Insider, Real Madrid are interested in signing the Frenchman this summer, with Los Blancos said to be in the market for a dynamic, top-level midfielder to eventually replace Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and co.
It is added that Spurs have been approached by Real, and are aware of their strong interest.
The Tottenham hierarchy, though, are not listening to offers for their midfield star as things stand.
In terms of a potential fee for Ndombele, FI claim that the Lilywhites would be keen to recoup the original £54m splashed out on his signature, if the club’s stance on a sale changes.
