Ndombele admits he has spoken to Mbappe about PSG transfer desire


Tanguy Ndombele has opened the door to a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain in the future.

Just a few months ago, it seemed as if Ndombele’s time at Tottenham could come to a premature end as the midfielder was linked with a move away from the club in the summer after a disappointing first season in North London.

However, the Frenchman has managed to turnaround his form this season and has been one of Spurs’ most consistent performers.

Ndombele admitted that he was ready to quit Tottenham after a difficult first season but the club wanted to hang on to him.

In an interview with Telefoot (as relayed by The Daily Mail), the midfielder said: “My first season was tough, I questioned myself a lot, now the page is turned.

“It is true that at a certain moment I wanted to leave, I didn’t feel in the right place. I told them I wanted out. They didn’t want me to go.”

The 24-year-old also admitted that he had spoken to his France international teammate Kylian Mbappe about his desire to move to PSG in the past.

When asked about whether he would be open to a transfer to the Parisians, the Tottenham star said: “I’m a boy from the Paris region. Wearing the Paris jersey one day? Why not – but today I’m in Tottenham, and it’s going well.

“I spoke with Kylian about a possible coming to PSG. Two or three years in a row we discussed it.

“It didn’t happen and today at Tottenham it’s going well, but why not in the future?”

The former Lyon man also admitted that he is desperate to win his place back in the Les Blues squad ahead of the Euros in the summer.

He added: “Of course I miss the France team. As a competitor, we want to be one of the best.

“The European Championship remains a goal in the back of my mind. If I do well at club level, why not be called up?”

Spurs Web Opinion

It sounds like it was Daniel Levy who stopped Ndombele from leaving Spurs in the summer. It is possible that the Tottenham chairman is also the one blocking Dele Alli from joining PSG. Perhaps that is a sign that Levy does not completely trust Mourinho’s judgement when it comes to transfers and is also being mindful about securing the club’s future.
