Tanguy Ndombele stopped former Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho from signing Donny van de Beek

According to The Athletic (Subscription Required) [h/t Football.london], Jose Mourinho could not secure a deal for Donny van de Beek as his attempts to offload Tanguy Ndombele during his tenure at Tottenham Hotspur failed.

The former Chelsea manager had a tough spell at the Lilywhites as he took over the North London club from Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino. The current Paris Saint-Germain coach had a productive time with Spurs at N17 yet wasn’t able to win any major trophy with the club.

It is believed that the Portuguese manager tried to sign van de Beek but the move failed because Jose was unable to offload Ndombele. The Dutch international then made his way to Manchester United for a sum of £36million from Ajax Amsterdam.

The 24-year-old Dutch midfielder has been struggling to find quality game time at Old Trafford ever since he made the switch. Both of the midfielders are currently struggling to make an impact at their respective clubs. van de Beek was close to joining Everton on loan in the last transfer window but the move was blocked by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Nuno Espirito Santo has just taken over as the manager of the Lilywhites this season. He has witnessed a roller coaster ride so far as his squad have been pretty inconsistent in the Premier League so far. That included with Harry Kane’s goal drought has just made things even more troubling for the former Wolves manager.
