Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed the name of the club to whom he would like to sell in-demand youngster Tanguy Ndombele in the summer
The right-footed midfielder has registered 44 senior appearances for the French outfit this campaign, and his contract is due to expire in 2023.
Along with Houssem Aouar, Ndombele is Lyon’s most wanted man at the moment, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and Juventus fighting over his signature.
Although the 22-year-old is expected to be at the center of a huge bidding war in the upcoming transfer window, Aulas has admitted he would like to see his star joining Juventus.
“Are Juventus after Ndombele? Yes, it’s true. But PSG are also there, Manchester United and City too,” he said.

“Honestly, I would like to see Ndombele at Juventus with Pjanic, a player that broke out at Lyon and a player I am still very attached to.
“We will see what happens.
“In the sale of a player, the economic parameters are the priority.
“But if offers are equal, I would offer him to (Juventus president) Andrea Agnelli.”
Former Amiens man would be a perfect replacement for aging Sami Khedira although the reigning Serie A holders will have to beat competition from Manchester City to secure Ndombele’s services.
Pep Guardiola has already expressed his interest in the highly-rated box-to-box midfielder, who has impressed the Spaniard in Lyon’s two-legged Champions League clash with the Citizens.
