Roma eye Tottenham star Tanguy Ndombele as a replacement for Nemanja Matic

According to Calciomercato, Jose Mourinho is eyeing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele as a replacement for Roma should Nemanja Matic leave the club this summer.

As Nemanja Matic’s potential transfer to Rennes hangs in the balance, the spotlight turns to Roma and their shrewd tactician, Jose Mourinho. A reunion between Mourinho and Ndombele is a tantalising prospect, considering their history together at Tottenham.

Ndombele’s recent sojourn at Napoli elevated his profile, contributing significantly to the club’s conquest of the Serie A title. However, he does not necessarily have a future in Tottenham as of yet.

Turkish giants Galatasaray and Fenerbahce expressed their intrigue in the player, although substantive negotiations are yet to manifest. However, if someone like Roma come in, Ndombele might prefer to move there.

During their stint at Tottenham, the Special One didn’t mince words when commending the midfielder’s prowess. Mourinho’s acumen allowed him to spot Tanguy Ndombele‘s latent potential, labelling him as a standout talent on the European stage.

Speaking about Ndombele all those years ago, here is what Mourinho had to say

“Tanguy, I have to be honest, Tanguy is the kind of guy who you always expect more than what he gives you, because he is so talented that you always expect more.”

With the potential departure of Matic to Rennes looming, Ndombele’s arrival could facilitate a dynamic recalibration of Roma’s midfield dynamics. The thought of Mourinho rekindling Ndombele’s untapped potential is exciting for the football romantic.

Tottenham signed the 26-year-old with the hope that he would become a star for the club. However, not all love stories last the test of time and the Frenchman is unlikely to realise his potential if he stays in North London.
