5 Most Expensive African Players In Football History Juventus happy to swap Dybala & Mandzukic for Lukaku

It took Ndombele just one minute and four touches to show why Tottenham splashed out around £54 million pounds (US$66 million) - a club record - to sign the France midfielder from Lyon.

Last week, United agreed a potential swap deal with Juve with Romelu Lukaku moving in the opposite direction but the Argentine reportedly priced himself out of the move with what the club deemed as "excessive" wage demands.

A €70m fee, meanwhile, was agreed with Juventus to sign Paulo Dybala (as revealed by Goal on Tuesday), though getting that one over the line is proving hard.

The report by di Marzio further states that Spurs will now have to have negotiations with Dybala to agree on a contract and try and convince him to join the club.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino conceded they enter this Premier League season with some players short of preparation and maybe not in an ideal condition.

The England U21 worldwide is seen as one of the most highly-rated youngsters in British football and the fact he can play at left-back or further forward down the left flank will appeal to Pochettino.

Spurs had emerged as the most likely English club to sign Barcelona outcast Philippe Coutinho, though the Liga champions have demanded a loan fee of €30m for the Brazil worldwide.

Moreover, cash infusion they gained from reaching last season's Champions League final. I feel very good physically so I am not sure what is going to happen this year.
