Paris Saint Germain coach, Mauricio Pochettino is not on good terms with his former superior, Tottenham chief, Daniel Levy on disallowing Dele Alli to move with the Argentine to France.

The French giants seek the signature of the English forward on a loan basis, but PSG’s efforts to secure the loan for Alli proved abortive, no thanks to the management of the London side, leaving Pochettino and the entire camp frustrated at the deadline of the transfer window.

Alli only appeared four times with no goal in the English Premier League this season, PSG could be a long shot for him- to have more playing time- in making a reunion with his former boss, but his miserable stint in the English topflight likely to continue, though Jose Mourinho approved his exit from the Spurs to France.

But Tottenham was planning for a shock move for their former player Christian Eriksen-who is gradually coming back to his form after he was at the pecking order under Antonio Conte in Italy.

Because his relationship between Alli and Mourinho is not cordial, affecting him-not having playing time at the club. He has expressed his frustration through some gestures on Twitter.

Some football pundits have questioned Mourinho’s decision of not playing the 24-year-old forward. Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp had his quota on Alli’s present status at the club

“Why not get Alli playing again!? He was one of the best in the country!” he said

“Anything other than a top-four finish, in the eyes of the owners, is a disaster,” he stated


Alli will have to wait till the summer transfer windows, at the end of the season. His formal contract expires in 2024, he might go to another club regardless of the agreement with the club.
