The Athletic have revealed that AC Milan have decided not to pursue a deal for Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele this summer.

It is clear that Ndombele does not have a future at Tottenham under Antonio Conte, with the midfielder not playing any part in the Italian’s pre-season plans after returning from his loan spell at Lyon.

Last week, it was reported by Gianluca Di Marzio that the midfielder’s name was discussed when Fabio Paratici met with representatives from AC Milan in Italy to negotiate a deal for Japhet Tanganga.

Media Foot revealed this week that Galatasaray have also requested information regarding the Frenchman’s availability and the Turkish club could make a loan offer for the player.

The Athletic have now claimed that Milan looked at Ndombele but decided against moving for him as they were put off by his wages.

The report added that while Marseille are among the clubs interested in the 25-year-old, there is ‘nothing advanced’ at the moment.

It is explained that Spurs are likely to be left with no choice but to loan Ndombele out again this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham’s purchase of Ndombele shows just how expensive a bad transfer can be for a football club. Other than the transfer fee, the midfielder also earns £10.4m per year in wages (Sportac), which means that the transfer could set Spurs back around £120m over the length of his contract (including the transfer fee) unless the club manage to find a solution.

  1. Unreal situation, not surprised No-one wants him, he’s lazy with attitude and stereotypical behaviour from a conning loser, put him in the reserves and get the money back via fines when he don’t show up for training and games, cos he won’t! Another point is offloading liability Sanchez, put him in reserves too, both players are rubbish
