There have been a number of contradictory reports which have emerged regarding Tanguy Ndombele’s future over the past few weeks.
Some recent reports have claimed that Spurs are negotiating the midfielder’s sale with Inter Milan on the back of a disappointing first season in North London (Guardian).
Meanwhile, Football.London have maintained that Tottenham have no intention of selling Ndombele.
They even claimed that Jose Mourinho still believes the former Lyon man can become a ‘world-class’ asset for the side next season once he gets used to the Premier League.
Former Tottenham midfielder Michael Brown believes that unless the 23-year-old buckles down and shows Mourinho that he is willing to work hard, he will be moved on this summer.
Brown had previously claimed that he cannot see Daniel Levy taking a loss on the club’s record signing but he has now suggested that Ndombele needs to show a change in attitude to have a future at the club.
Speaking to Football Insider, Brown said: “Unless Ndombele really, really gets his head down in this off-season and comes back ready to go, on board with how the manager wants him to play, not how he wants to play, then they’re going to look to offload him.
“However you’re dealing with it, whether it’s swap deal or whatever, it’s all subjective to Levy, I suppose.”

As much as I wish I am wrong, I cannot see any way back for Ndombele at Spurs. It does not seem like he and Jose get along and I would be surprised if that suddenly changes next season. If a club is willing to pay close to what we did for the Frenchman last summer, I cannot see us keeping him.
