Why Tanguy Ndombele is furious with Jose Mourinho & Tottenham’s possible swap plus cash deal with Bayern Munich

Tanguy Ndombele vs Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho may have tried to play the rift down after the 2-0 win against West Ham, however reports keep filtering out regarding the relationship breakdown between Tottenham’s manager and €62 million signing Tanguy Ndombele.

Telefoot reporter Julien Maynard broke the news on Tuesday that Ndombele has had a major falling out with Mourinho.

Maynard claimed that, during a meeting last week, Ndombele told Mourinho he no longer wants to play for him.

On top of that, since the Premier League restarted, Mourinho has left Ndombele on the bench against Man United and West Ham.

According to eye-witness reports during the Hammers game, Ndombele appeared to show zero interest in getting on the pitch in the London derby.

 

Why Tanguy Ndombele is furious with Jose Mourinho

On Wednesday, ESPN’s French journalist Julien Laurens has revealed much more detail about Ndombele’s problem with the Special One.

Tottenham’s last Premier League match before the UK went into lockdown was a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

After that game, Jose Mourinho tore into Tanguy Ndombele in his post-match press conference. Ndombele was hooked at halftime at Turf Moor, and Mourinho later said:

I have to say (Ndombele) has had enough time to come to a different level… A player with his potential has to give us more than he is giving us.

However, according to Julien Laurens, Mourinho has been taking jabs at Ndombele since he arrived at the club:

(Ndombele) has had enough of the constant criticism and taunts coming from his manager, either in private or publicly, which have happened since Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino last November.

The straw that broke the camel’s back, however, appears to have come after Tottenham’s squad returned to training at the beginning of Project Restart. ESPN reveal:

Mourinho told the France international that he was still not ready to start and that he was not doing enough during sessions. However, Ndombele believes he is at 100% of his capacity.

 

Tottenham’s possible swap plus cash deal with Bayern Munich

Ndombele’s future is now complicated.

When he signed for Spurs last summer, Ndombele agreed a 5-year deal.

That’s no chance that Tottenham will write off that investment after 12 months, while the market for Ndombele is likely to have contracted because of the coronavirus pandemic.

We’ve previously reported that Ndombele is a possible target for Barcelona and PSG this summer.

ESPN also confirm that the Catalans and Parisians remain interested in the midfielder. However, both clubs are also dealing with the financial fallout from Covid-19.

Interestingly, ESPN suggest that Bayern Munich could present Spurs with an alternative:

Bayern Munich, who could lose Thiago Alcantara and are looking to sell Corentin Tolisso, could also come in for Ndombele.

They have the money and the possibility of a swap deal involving Tolisso, plus cash, could be an option, sources have told ESPN.
