PSV Eindhoven boss Roger Schmidt has seemingly sent a message to the Eredivisie club’s hierarchy by insisting that rumoured Tottenham target Noni Madueke could be worth a lot more in a few years.
Madueke came through the ranks at Spurs, making his debut for the club’s Under-18s when he was just 15 years of age.
However, Tottenham were unable to hang on to the winger as he rejected the club’s contract offer and decided to join PSV in 2018.
Noni has developed considerably since his move to the Dutch club, established himself as a regular in the starting eleven last season and finishing the campaign with 9 goals and 8 assists.
Reports emerged a few days ago that Tottenham were exploring the possibility of bringing the 19-year-old back to the club this summer.
However, in an apparent bid to hold on to Madueke, Schmidt has now suggested that PSV may be wise to cash in on the Spurs academy graduate a few years down the line rather than this summer.
When asked about the speculation linking the teenager with a return to the Premier League, the PSV boss said (via Eindhovens Dagblad journalist Rif Elfrink): “You could sell him. But if you sell him in 2 years, you might get a lot more for him. He feels so good in this team and this team now.”

In his post-match press conference on Sunday Nuno alluded to the fact that he sees Son as more of a winger than a striker. That means that in Son, Bergwijn, Lucas and Gil, Nuno already has four wide players to select from. So, it is difficult to see us moving for another winger unless one of either Lucas or Bergwijn are sold.
