Pochettino would like to line up Ndombele against Real Madrid

Tanguy Ndombele, a 25-year-old midfielder who arrived in Tottenham in 2019 from Olympique Lyonnais and under contract until 2025, has been pushed towards the exit lately. For several days, many media have indicated that PSG has returned to the charge for a loan and that it is advancing in the file so the French international (7 selections) makes it his priority. This Wednesday morning, RMC Sport ensures that coach Mauricio Pochettino is pushing for his arrival since he sees him as a possible starter against Real Madrid in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

“Pochettino hopes to be able to count on Tanguy Ndombele in his squad before the end of the winter transfer window. The Paris Saint-Germain coach likes the profile of the French international, whom he brought to Tottenham, and believes he would bring something different. The Argentinian has informed his management of his strong desire to be able to field Ndombele, in particular for the round of 16 in the Champions League against Real Madrid. »

This media is generally reliable, so we can assume that Pochettino is indeed in favor of this transfer. Which makes sense, since the Argentine coach had wanted him to come to Tottenham when he was with the Spurs. If he manages to revive it, he can indeed obtain qualities of percussion and offensive play which are lacking in the Parisian workforce. Ndombele will also have to be ready to make defensive efforts for a real plus. But we can hope that he would be full of fighting spirit with an opportunity at PSG, his heart club and a strong project in Europe. Especially with the World Cup approaching and perhaps a hope of being with the French team.

However, there is still nothing done. Tottenham remains demanding: Paris would have to pay all of Ndombele’s salary, while the amount of a purchase option is still not mentioned. And PSG should rather reduce its workforce before really pushing its offer. It is possible that the transfer will materialize, just as it is thinkable that the blockage will continue.
