Real Madrid are seriously considering to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli this summer, Italian website Tuttomercato has claimed.
The 20-year-old has impressed everyone in his first season at White Hart Lane, becoming one of the leaders of the team and helping the club come second in the Premier League. In fact, he is a Player of the Year candidate in England, having scored 10 goals in 46 games.
Los Blancos have been eyeing the Englishman for a few months and have even sent scouts to watch him. The main problem is Alli’s price.
Neither Mauricio Pochettino nor Daniel Levy want to see the youngster leave Tottenham. Thus, Spurs will not consider any offer unless it is an absolutely crazy bid.
Florentino Perez is going to make several signings this summer in order to prepare for a possible transfer ban next year, so there is little chance he will have enough money left to make a serious attempt on Alli.
Yet, if Tottenham agreed to negotiate for a lower amount, Perez will surely be ready to bring the England international.
