Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts insists that the club will not let Tanguy Ndombele leave the club on the cheap amid links with Real Madrid.
Football Insider reported earlier this month that the Spanish club are keen on signing the France international this summer.
Spurs are said to have been approached by Real, with the club well aware of their heightened interest in the midfielder.
Have you been impressed with Ndombele this season?
Ndombele has endured a relatively inconsistent season, making 28 starts in the Premier League, but completing the 90 minutes just six times.
He has scored three goals and registered two assists but has struggled for minutes in recent weeks, playing just 34 minutes in the final four games of the season. He was not included in the squad against Leicester City on the final day of the season as Spurs won 4-2.
Roberts, though, says that Spurs will not let Ndombele go on the cheap, having paid £53.8m to bring him in from Lyon.
Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, he said: “I think there’s a few who can go. But it all depends on the manager.
“The manager is going to come in, they’re not going to sell Ndombele for £20 million. They’ll want their money back.
“If Real Madrid think he’s that good, they’ve got to pay the money.”
