The Tottenham Hotspurs just made its biggest investment up to date, on the 22-year-old midfielder who was signed into Mauricio Pochettino’s team for £63million. Ndombele has had quite the prolific performance in Lyon, with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain also keen on purchasing the player for the summer.
When asked about the big transfer offer from Pochettino’s side, Ndombele was nothing but pleased and excited for the next chapter of his career. ‘Tottenham have one of the best managers in the world. The fact that he wants you, it makes you want to come work with him. He was the one who shifted my decision.”
‘It is difficult to describe but he knows how to touch people, to leave a mark on people. He looked at me in the eyes and said: “Come with me, I am sure that you will progress. It is these types of little things that made me want to sign over there. I could see that he really, genuinely wanted me, that he genuinely liked me.’ Ndombele adds.
