Tottenham managed to win the race for Tanguy Ndombele.
Everything came together this summer for Tottenham Hotspur to win the race for Tanguy Ndombele.
While Manchester City and Juventus have focused on other targets, Tottenham have been able to move in relatively unopposed for the Frenchman.
Real Madrid's stance appears to have been complicated by their desire to sign Paul Pogba, via AS.
Ndombele was only seen as a back-up, The Mirror reported.
But with Pogba's asking price over £100 million and Real already spending big this summer, the Spanish giants could be left with none.
Tottenham's quick move this summer has meant Ndombele will not be leftover to be a back-up and Real must look elsewhere.
Spurs have landed a complete midfielder, because they knew exactly who they wanted and got him.
Here is a look at how Real Madrid fans reacted to Tottenham's move...
Ndombele will end up Real Madrid someday hth— Ali Hayat Lakhani (@alihayatlakhani) July 2, 2019
Ndombele was Real Madrid's one of the option to sort out our midfield but we missed out on him, let's say we missed out on him without even trying.— Nakib (@NakibRM) July 2, 2019
The only way our midfield will be Pogba and anyone of Eriksen or De beek, I hope it's De beek. https://t.co/GmFk7q6IWh
Madrid might end up becoming the losers here considering the fact that Ndombele who could have been the backup for both clubs has joined Tottenham.— Aramis (@saaramis) July 2, 2019
Spurs got Ndombélé for £54m meanwhile Zidane wants us to spend £170m to sign him some retarded wannabe dancer who thinks dabbing is mature.— W (@WaqarRMCF) July 2, 2019
Baffled at how Zidane didn’t go for Ndombele seeing as how we could’ve easily got him for 70M, and I’m sure Zidane is aware of his talent and potential especially since he’s French. This tells me that ZZ is very confident that Perez will get him Pogba this summer.— (@AydanAzzar) July 2, 2019
Ndombele is a big miss. I love zidane but I don't want pogba for even 100 million. He's not just that 100 million player. Idk why zidane is dying for him— Evil Morty (Mystic Mac) (@NotoriousPunked) July 2, 2019
Ndombele actually off to Spurs, Zidane has blood on his hands I’m telling you pic.twitter.com/2GlFVAN7rM— N (@asensiones) July 2, 2019
Great signing from the Spurs after missing out on the Champions League last season. Massive. https://t.co/W7xHPwhyya— Zidane (@Zizou_Esque) July 2, 2019
