Manchester United reportedly still have a chance to sign highly sought-after Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele despite Tottenham being favourites.
The Frenchman previously admitted the London side are a big club, leading many to believe a move was inevitable.
With United said to be more keen on the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Sean Longstaff, it was understood that Spurs were leading this race.
Ndombele was only on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s radar as a replacement to Paul Pogba but given how he hasn’t left yet, there may be no need.
However, allowing a talented player to join one of their top four rivals may not be the smartest move.
According to the Mirror, L’Equippe report that Lyon have agreed a £64m with Tottenham but Tanguy is yet to agree personal terms, leaving the door open to the Red Devils to hijack a move as it’s believed they’re willing to match the bid.
However, last season’s Champions League finalists have more to offer than their Europa League counterparts.
Ndombele also doesn’t fit Solskjaer’s transfer policy of signing young, British players who are full of potential.
It’s clear whatever happens that this transfer saga is far from over and if Pogba does suddenly depart, there may be even more twists.
