Barcelona offer two key players for Ndombele

Barcelona have offered two major players to the team to Tottenham in order to sign Tanguy Ndombele this summer.

The Frenchman failed to impress since joining Tottenham from Lyon for a club record £55 million fee last summer.

However, Barcelona are looking to bring some freshness and strength to the squad and they believe that Ndombele is the perfect addition to Camp Nou.

The Catalans are not able to afford the France midfielder and that's why they have offered Tottenham two players.

Barcelona have offered Spurs the chance to sign right-back Nelson Semedo and centre-back Samuel Umtiti this summer.

Inter Milan also have target Semedo as the 26-year-old have become a regular in the team this season. Umtiti on the other hand have struggled with injuries in recent years. 

Tottenham are in the hunt for a new right-back as they have failed to replace Kieran Trippier, who joined Atletico Madrid last summer for £20m.

The 23-year-old Frenchman has completed only one 90-minute match under Mourinho's management, who succeeded Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham head coach last November.

Tottenham manager Mourinho publicly criticized Tanguy Ndombele after the draw against Burnley.

“I have to say he has had enough time to come to a different level,” said Mourinho.

“I know the Premier League is difficult, and some players take a long time to adapt to a different league.

“But a player with his potential has to give us more than he is giving us, especially when you see how Lucas [Moura], [Giovani] Lo Celso and those players are playing. I was expecting more in the first-half from him.

“He’s a player with great talent. He has to know he has to do much better and I know I cannot keep giving him opportunities to play because the team is much more important.”
