Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur are always linked in the transfer market. Any raising star in the Spurs call the attraction of Los Blancos and any unhappy Real Madrid player is targeted by the North London club. The last one is Dele Alli, who is in Real Madrid agenda for the next summer.
According to The Mirror, Dele Alli has caught the eye of Real Madrid scouters. The English midfielder is shining in the Premier League and he has also played with his national team in the last Euro. Alli is one of the best youngers in Europe and Los Blancos could try to sign him in the next summer.
Only two years ago, Alli was playing in the League One for Milton Keynes Dons, a city close to London. The Spurs invested around £5M to sign him and they won’t regret it. In only two seasons, he has become one of the best players in the squad and last Sunday he scored two goals in the victory over Watford. Alli has now found the net 8 times this season in only 18 games.
Since his arrival, Mauricio Pochettino gave him all the confidence and even last year he played 33 games in the Premier League, although he was not used to play at a high level. He didn’t feel the pressure and scored 10 goals in the competition. Pochettino is his fan number one and, according to the manager, Alli’s value should be around £55M.
The player signed in september a new deal with Tottenham Hotspur for the next 6 years and his salary was risen up to £3M per year. Real Madrid could easily improve his salary, so the player could be tempted to play in the Spanish capital.
Alli plays in a similar role than Isco or James Rodríguez, whose future might be outside of Real Madrid. Besides, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid have kept a close relationship in the last years with important deals, such as Luka Modric or Gareth Bale.
