Tottenham to Part Ways with £200,000-a-Week Player in Summer Clear-Out
12 April, 2024

As Tottenham Hotspur continues to shape their formidable squad under Ange Postecoglou's leadership, there's a notable shift in the team's ethos, marked by a newfound unity and collective spirit. Positioned fourth in the Premier League, alongside Aston Villa, Spurs are poised for a potential Champions League qualification, a testament to their remarkable progress.

However, amidst this success, one player's future at the club hangs in the balance. Tanguy Ndombele, once hailed as a promising acquisition following his £63 million move from Lyon in 2019, finds himself on the fringes. Despite early optimism, Ndombele's tenure at Tottenham has been marred by underperformance, failing to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon him.

Loan spells at Lyon, Napoli, and Galatasaray have done little to revive his fortunes, with the latter marred by reported issues of unprofessional behavior, souring his relationship with the Turkish club. With his return to Tottenham imminent, it's clear that there's no place for Ndombele in Postecoglou's plans.

The club's decision to part ways with the midfielder is evident, with reports indicating Spurs' intention to facilitate his departure this summer. However, finding suitors for Ndombele on a permanent basis has proven challenging, with previous attempts yielding no success.

In a bid to expedite his exit, Tottenham recently approached Galatasaray with an offer to offload Ndombele for a significantly reduced fee of €5 million (£4.3m), a fraction of his original transfer value. Yet, despite this desperate attempt, Gala's response remains lukewarm, suggesting a bleak outlook for Ndombele's future.

As the Frenchman's lucrative contract with Spurs enters its final year, it's increasingly apparent that his time at the club is nearing its end. With no viable options for a permanent transfer in sight, Ndombele's departure from Tottenham appears inevitable, marking the conclusion of a disappointing chapter in his career.
