Graham Roberts insists that Tottenham Hotspur will only allow Tanguy Ndombele to move to Bayern Munich if they receive a big fee or Robert Lewandowski in part-exchange.
Ndombele is reported to have informed Spurs that he would be open to an exit from the club prior to the transfer deadline.
That has led to links with Bayern Munich, and a mooted swap deal involving midfielder Corentin Tolisso.
Will Tanguy Ndombele live up to his club record price tag?
Yes, 100%, he is incredible
Roberts, though, insists that Spurs have no interest in the players that are currently being offered, and that Bayern need to pay up.
Ndombele, of course, is Spurs’ all-time record signing after arriving from Lyon for a fee of £54m.
Indeed, the club legend believes that the Bundesliga giants would need to offer a player of the quality of Lewandowski to convince chairman Daniel Levy to swap Ndombele.
Lewandowski has also told his current club that he would like to take on a new challenge, per reports, and has been a legendary player at Bayern, scoring a staggering 298 goals in 332 games for the club.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “It will if they want to pay the money.
“We don’t want the players that they’re throwing at us. If they want to throw Lewandowski in it, then yeah we’ll take him and we’ll swap you, but they don’t want to do that.”
