Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has confirmed Inter wanted to sign him in the summer and reveals why he stayed in London.
Ndombele had been linked with a move to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza before Inter signed Arturo Vidal last summer.
“The President said no [to Inter],” Ndombele told Canal Plus.
“He wanted me to stay and I wanted to give more than the previous season.
“Mourinho and I put misunderstandings behind us and the results are there to be seen.”
The 23-year-old joined Tottenham from Lyon for €60m in summer 2019.
“I’ve proved [José] Mourinho we are motivated, that’s all that matters. Things are going well with the coach, everyone has put his ego on one side.”
