Ndombele has joined Tottenham from French club Lyon in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £53.8 million.
The 22-year-old midfielder plays with United midfielder Pogba and Chelsea midfielder Kante for the France national football team.
The youngster has stated that at this point in time, both Pogba and Kante are better than him.
Ndombele told L’Equipe, as translated by Getfootballnewsfrance.com, when asked if he is far from Pogba and Kante: “I am not going to say that I am far away, but they are ahead of me. There is work to do, I need to continue to hustle. They became world champions, so automatically they are ahead of me.
"They have more experience than me too. I see it in training during sequences. These little details, movements, turns. I am eternally unsatisfied, so I will continue to learn.”
Both Pogba and Kante are established midfielders and are arguably world-class football, while Ndombele is still only 22.
The France international will improve and develop in the coming years, and playing under Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino can only make him better.
Ndombele made 31 starts and three substitute appearances in Ligue 1 for Lyon last season, scoring one goal and providing seven assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
The Frenchman made seven starts and one substitute appearance in the Champions League for Lyon in 2018-29, scoring two goals in the process, according to WhoScored.
