Aulas: I will sell Ndombele to Juventus

Olympique Lyonnais President Jean-Michel Aulas has confessed the club would sell Tanguy Ndombele to Juventus if they receive the right offer.

Ndombele is the latest Lyon midfielder to court the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs alongside Liverpool’s long-term target Nabil Fekir.

Real Madrid according to recent reports are also in discussion with the players’ agent and will strike a deal once both parties agree on a deal.

However, it seems Aulas favours Juve after telling the Italian Champions 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.”

Ndombele will be a decent addition to the ageing Juve midfielders and injury prone Samir Khedira.
