Although it has been three days since the Western European transfer market closed, Tottenham announced the departure of two players on the 5th (Korean time), when the Türkiye transfer window was still open. Sanchez moves to Galatasaray. The transfer fee was omitted from Tottenham’s announcement, but based on media reports, it appears to be a basic 9.5 million euros (about 13.5 billion won).

Sanchez is a player who was once evaluated as having the qualities of a world-class center back. He made headlines by playing for one season at Ajax after playing for his native Colombian powerhouse Nacional. He was named Ajax’s best player in the 2016-2017 season. Tottenham, who had already had success in recruiting former Ajax defenders, spent a huge sum of 42 million pounds (about 70 billion won) to recruit them.

Although he was not sluggish throughout his time at Tottenham, he generally did not live up to expectations. In particular, compared to the beginning of his debut, his competitiveness gradually decreased, and his participation decreased every time defenders were recruited to replace him. In the 2022-2023 season, he only played in 24 games, including 18 league games, and his position was greatly reduced after his transfer to Tottenham. After taking office, coach Enzi Postecoglou classified Sánchez as a target for release.

Midfielder Ndombele joins Galatasaray on a one-season loan. He was a brilliantly recruited player who set a Tottenham transfer fee record in 2019 and received the highest salary in the team. His performance at France’s Olympique Lyonnais was enough to be called ‘the next Paul Pogba’.

However, their brilliant ball-keeping and passing abilities were only shown briefly during the game, and they failed to establish themselves due to poor overall team play, including poor defensive activity. After competing at Tottenham for two and a half seasons, he was loaned to Lyon for half a year and to Napoli for a year. In Naples, he was fortunate enough to play as a teammate of Kim Min-jae and win the Italian Serie A.

Tottenham suffered a thinning of its player base and released players who were not included in Coach Postekoglou’s plan. The midfielder has no problem carrying on the season as promising players such as Yves Bissouma and Pape Sar, who performed poorly last season, have revived due to the change of coach. However, center back Jin Yong-eun’s player base is poor, and it is known that coach Postekoglou plans to use 18-year-old center back Ashley Phillips from the youth team rather than Sanchez. Currently, Tottenham is cruising with 3 wins and 1 draw in the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) while actively recruiting young players with captain Son Heung-min as the focal point.
