Bayern could go for Tanguy Ndombele after he vows never to play for Mourinho again

Tanguy Ndombele had a bust up with a “The Special One” and it could be an opportunity for Bayern to pounce on.


Following suit from the Bundesliga, Premier League football has resumed, and with it, plenty of drama. Jose Mourniho is certainly no stranger to being the subject of the odd egregious headline, and it’s only taken one week of the “Prem” being back for this to be the case once again. The Tottenham boss has reportedly had another spat with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, which has left the Frenchmen vowing he’ll never play for Mourinho again (ESPN).

The two have already had heated exchanges in the past, but the latest incident happened during Spurs’ training session on Monday ahead of their 2-0 win over West Ham United. Apparently, Mourinho felt that Ndombele wasn’t doing enough in training and had not done enough on his own during the coronavirus lock down, claims the midfielder completely disagrees with.

Now, Ndombele’s agent, Pini Zahavi, is looking for a potential solution. Zahavi would likely be involved in brokering a deal to get Ndombele away from North London. ESPN suggests that Bayern could be a good, logical destination for the French midfielder since Thiago Alcantara and Corentin Tolisso both might leave during the next transfer window:

Bayern Munich, who could lose Thiago Alcantara and are looking to sell Corentin Tolisso, could also come in for Ndombele. They have the money and the possibility of a swap deal involving Tolisso, plus cash, could be an option, sources have told ESPN.

Thus far this season, Ndombele has scored 2 goals and provided 4 assists from a total of 27 appearances across competitions in his maiden season for Spurs since joining from Olympique Lyon last summer for a fee of around €62 million. For being the club’s record signing, he’s certainly grown frustrated with spending time on Mourinho’s bench. As a midfielder who’s good in possession, good at shielding players off of the ball, and who has great vision, he could prove to be a solid fit a Bayern, especially if the sale of Tolisso facilitates a reduced rate for him.
