'I'd sell Ndombele to Juve'

Olympique Lyonnais President Jean-Michel Aulas has confessed that ‘I’d sell Tanguy Ndombele to Juventus if all the offers were the same.’

Ndombele is the latest Lyon midfielder to court the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs, and Aulas urged Juve to come in with a reasonable bid for the 22-year-old.

“It’s true that Juventus are after Ndombele,” he told Tuttosport.

“But there’s also PSG, Manchester United and City. I’d honestly like to see Ndombele at Juventus with Pjanic, a player we launched at Lyon and who I’m still very attached to.

“We’ll see what happens. I won’t talk about money. Economic parameters are the priority when selling players, but I’d like to sell him to Andrea Agnelli if all the offers were the same.

The Frenchman has been compared to ex-Bianconero Paul Pogba, so what does Aulas make of it?

“Paul was the leading light of a great World Cup with France but, as is normal, he paid a bit for the World Cup this season.

“Ndombele has been more decisive this season and is more complete for me.”
