TANGUY NDOMBELE is more determined than ever to leave Tottenham after his manager’s latest snub, according to reports.
The club-record £65million signing was left on the bench once again on Monday as Spurs sealed a 1-0 win over Everton in a game that was low on quality.
Ndombele has clocked in just 19 minutes of action since football returned while problems with Jose Mourinho have mounted behind the scenes.
His last start came in a 1-1 draw with Burnley in March where he was hooked off at half-time and criticised by Mourinho for his performance.
It was also suggested how the pair had a major bust-up in training last month – an incident that Mourinho has denied.
Now L’Equipe report how Ndombele has lost patience with his manager and his representatives are actively seeking the nearest escape route.
He has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Juventus but no concrete offers have been made.
The Old Lady even rejected a potential swap deal that would see Aaron Ramsey head back to the Premier League with Arsenal’s arch rivals.
Spurs owner Daniel Levy has held talks with the player’s representatives to diffuse the feud with Mourinho and remind him that he can become an integral member of the team.
But it appears as though the damage is already done with Ndombele feeling as though he has been made a scapegoat for Mourinho’s shortcomings.
Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly shown an interest but they have prioritised landing Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Mourinho has backed the flop to turn things around although hinted he’ll have to do it from the bench.
He said: “At Tottenham, I feel every time a top player is on the bench it’s a drama — but it’s not a drama.
“I hope next season we have more top players on the bench as it means we’ll be bigger than where we are.”
