Tottenham’s record signing Tanguy Ndombélé may have played his last game for the club after falling out with manager Jose Mourinho.
The £55 million capture from Lyon last July has had a difficult first season in English football, particularly since Mourinho took over as manager.
He has publicly criticised the midfielder’s level of performance and fitness, and the latest flashpoint came earlier this week, first on the training ground, and later in Mourinho’s office.
Mourinho accused the Frenchman of not being fit enough to start either of Spurs’ games since the restart, a version of events Ndombélé resents, having done extra training during the lockdown.
Ndombélé’s agents Romain Fernandes and Mounir Sidhoum are hastily trying to defuse the situation but neither party is currently prepared to compromise. And now it seems likely that the 23 year old could be sold in the summer after just one year in North London.
