Tanguy Ndombele showed again why he has been linked with a big money move to Manchester United.
While his Lyon side were on the wrong end of a hammering from Barcelona, Ndombele was superb.
Lyon were in the game at 2-1 down before Barcelona scored three in the final 10 minutes.
Ndombele has been linked with a move to United over the past few months and just last night The Sun reported interest remains in the ‘£70 million’ rated star.
Ndombele is a player in the Matic mould, with a more subtle touch on the ball.
He is only 22, so eight years younger than the Serbian, and an ideal successor.
Last night he won five tackles in the Nou Camp, made three interceptions. He completed 91 per cent of his passes, and touched the ball more times than any other Lyon player.
Put him in the United team and he could really be special, playing alongside Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera.
He has recently started playing alongside Pogba for France, which can only aid United’s cause.
Ndombele helped Lyon to a win over City earlier this season, a positive sign he could be a United success story.
Ndombele’s performance was tough to ignore and United fans were quick to make feelings known.
Get him to Old Trafford…
Ndombele flawless. Unreal footballer.

Ndombele feels the pressure of Messi so he does a back heel to separate himself from the pressure, this dude is a different gravy
