Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho tipped to sell one player to raise funds for new signings

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho could sell Tanguy Ndombele this summer to raise funds for new signings. Ndombele became Spurs’ record signing last summer after Daniel Levy forked out £53m for the midfielder.

However, the 23-year-old has struggled to impress at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Ndombele is yet to feature for Tottenham since the Premier League returned after a layoff due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mourinho and Ndombele are said to have had a bust-up, with the midfielder asking to leave the club.

And ex-Spurs ace Robinson says Mourinho could cash in on Ndombele this summer to free up funds for new signings.

“Sissoko has returned and shown that he has been missed. He has played alongside Harry Winks and Lo Celso and those three are preferred to Ndombele in the two holding midfield roles.

“If he stays it appears he will only be a bit-part and a squad player.

“Spurs have been quite public about how the current financial situation has hit them as a club. Ndombele could be a player that Mourinho disposes of to raise money and strengthen elsewhere.”

A lot has been made of Ndombele’s future, with transfer expert Duncan Castles claiming Levy isn’t giving up on their record signing, even if Mourinho wants to sell him.

“My understanding is that [Ndombele] will remain at the club and basically Mourinho’s been told this player is of importance to Tottenham and they’re not prepared to take a loss on him,” Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

“So he will have to solve the problem with management and coaching and I think the expectation has been that he will be part of the squad for the coming season and that the interesting part is to see how he responds to that, what Mourinho is capable of drawing from him.

“He has been open in the press and openly critical of the player, that’s a tactic that has worked for Mourinho in the past, it’s part of his management style, but you can certainly argue that it has failed to work as his career has gone on and as players have changed and had higher profile, social media which is something of a bug-bear to Mourinho.”

Tottenham are back in action on Thursday night, with Mourinho’s men travelling to Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently seventh in the table, nine points off Chelsea in fourth.
