Tottenham star Tanguy Ndombele has revealed his France team-mate Kylian Mbappe attempted to recruit him for his club Paris Saint-Germain. The 24-year-old joined Spurs from Lyon in 2019 and signed a deal until 2025. The France international suffered under Jose Mourinho, but he says he is currently happy at the club. However, speaking to Telefoot, Ndombele has not ruled out the possibility of returning to Paris.
“I’m a boy from the Paris region. Wearing the Paris jersey one day? Why not – but today I’m in Tottenham, and it’s going well. I spoke with Kylian about a possible coming to PSG. Two or three years in a row we discussed it. It didn’t happen and today at Tottenham it’s going well, but why not in the future?,” he said.
Mourinho publicly criticised Ndombele last March but after a long period, the Portuguese coach was hailing him as “phenomenal”
“At the beginning, it was going very well. After there were injuries, and we went to war. Well, not really war because he is the coach, I respect him,” said Ndombele. “I have a strong character, and he may have a stronger one than me.”
