Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has become embroiled in an inflammable relationship with Tanguy Ndombele that has resembled something straight out of a soap opera.
Inter are ready to offer the Frenchman a lifeline while Barca are trying to sort out a swap deal, despite the fact that Daniel Levy has already rebuffed their attempts to sign him so far. Contrary to some reports, Spurs have not held talks with Inter to sell Ndombele for a reduced fee.
According to the Evening Standard‘s Dan Kilpatrick, Levy will reportedly reject offers for the club’s record signing this summer. He has also ruled out using the six-cap French international as part of negotiations for player exchanges.
Levy is determined to give Ndombele another chance to become a success in north London, although it remains to be seen if Mourinho will feel the same way.
The Spurs manager has made it clear that he is concerned by his poor performances in training, which explains why he was an unused substitute for four out of a possible six league games before being dropped from the squad entirely for the final three fixtures.
At first, it seemed as though one of them would have to leave the club in order to resolve the situation, but Mourinho may have already changed his mind. The Portuguese recently claimed that the 23-year-old could still be a success at Spurs and cited Luka Modric’s early struggles at Real Madrid as an example.
