Report: Tottenham have offered £200k-a-week player in exchange for Juventus star

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly tried and failed in their bid to sign Weston McKennie from Juventus, after offering up Tanguy Ndombele as a swap option.

Spurs have had eyes on McKennie for some time now. Reports a few weeks back claimed that Fabio Paratici was trying to lure both McKennie and his teammate, Dejan Kulusevski, to North London. However, as yet, neither of the Juventus pair have arrived at Tottenham.

And according to Calciomercato, things aren’t edging closer either. They report how Tottenham have offered up Tanguy Ndombele to Juve to try and land McKennie. But for now at least, the Italian side have no interest in doing that deal. It’s suggested that Juventus see Ndombele’s huge wages as too much. CM report Ndombele to be on over £8m-a-season at Spurs.

Ndombele has once again struggle to make an impact under new Spurs boss, Antonio Conte. He failed to impress Jose Mourinho, too, and has been tipped to move on for some time. Tottenham paid more than £50m for Ndombele back in July 2019. However, he’s flattered to deceive and has shown only glimpses of his best.

One Player Who Should REJECT Your Club

Spurs boss Conte is believed to want a number of new players this month. The club are prepared to back him, but it remains to be seen just who Paratici can tempt to London.

It seems to just go round in circles for Tanguy Ndombele. One minute he looks like doing ok, then the next he is out of the manager’s plans and on his way out. Ultimately, he needs to move on and get a fresh start.

But as seen here, he is on so much money that he’s hardly appealing for other clubs. His form too, doesn’t exactly mean clubs are queuing up to take him.

McKennie would probably offer Spurs a lot more than Ndombele does. But Juventus, rightly so, have said no.
