Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has a long history of tough negotiations with Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas.
The pair came up against each other over the transfer of Hugo Lloris to Tottenham in which the Lyon chief blasted Levy for apparently going back on a previous agreement (Sky Sports).
Transfer talks are said to be ongoing between both parties for the transfer of Tanguy Ndombele with Spurs rumoured to be preparing a £70million offer next week (talkSPORT).
Jonathan Johnson, an English journalist based in Paris. Who covers PSG, Ligue 1 & France for ESPN told Love Sport Radio that Levy has met his match in Aulas due to both being likeminded characters when involved in transfer negotiations.
Johnson believes that Aulas will drag out the Ndombele negotiations for as long as possible to potentially drive demand from other European clubs who may come to the table.
