Report: Spurs want £51.5m for Tanguy Ndombele as midfielder demands move

Spurs are open to letting Tanguy Ndombele leave the club this summer, but only if someone is willing to pay around £51.5m for the Frenchman.

That’s according to The Telegraph, who claim that Spurs could sell Ndombele, but only if they recoup most of the £55m they forked out on him when Mauricio Pochettino was manager.

A £51.5m fee is likely to put off potential suitors, with money said to be tight around Europe this summer. Indeed, it’s a huge fee that would be Spurs’ second highest sale ever after Gareth Bale, and a whopping £20m more than they got for Luka Modric from Real Madrid.


Ndombele is onto his third manager now – four if you include Ryan Mason – and every time, he seems to fall short. There is clearly an underlying issue with the midfielder, despite his obvious talent.

Reports yesterday emerged across the board claiming Ndombele wanted out of the club. It came after Nuno Santo once again confirmed the Frenchman would not be involved this weekend.

It seems, then, that time could well be up for Ndombele, in terms of being a Tottenham success anyway.

TBR’s View: Time to sell, but nobody is paying that

Spurs and Daniel Levy might like to stand their ground on transfer fees but nobody is paying over £50m for Ndombele. It’s just not happening.

Of course, it’s natural that Spurs want their money back. But they are dreaming big here by putting such a figure on his head.

A loan move might end up being best here. Especially if it’s somewhere that Ndombele can settle and play well. If not, then unfortunately, Spurs are onto a bit of a hiding to nothing here.
