Amidst Tottenham Hotspurs’s interest in bringing back Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale back to the club, it is reported that an interesting Dele Alli swap deal could be on the cards.
According to the Telegraph, Tottenham are ready to offer Dele Alli to Real Madrid as they attempt to beat Manchester United to sign Gareth Bale, after securing Sergio Regulion from the Spanish giants.
Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly keen on linking up with the Welshman, who was sold to Real Madrid for a world-record £85.3 million fee in 2013 and has been seeking various ways to complete the deal.
Jose Mourinho is keen on working with Bale, and it is believed that 24-year-old Dele Alli could potentially on his way to Real Madrid as part of an exchange deal that could see Bale become a Spurs player again.
It emerged Tuesday that any such deal for Bale would see Los Blancos pay a portion of Bale’s wages, and the Mail writes that the figure is
With Real Madrid set to pay about 50% of Bale’s £600,000-a-week pay in order to offload him, perhaps getting a player in return would be favored by the Los Blancos.
Dele Alli reportedly fell out with head coach Jose Mourinho in Tottenham’s weekend defeat to Everton, according to Gabriel Agbonlahor, fueling the rumors of an exit for the England international.
Alli was hacked off at half-time for Moussa Sissoko on Sunday as Spurs eventually went on to lose their opening Premier League game to a rejuvenated Everton side.
Gabriel Agbonlahor has now revealed that Alli had a disagreement with Mourinho in the build-up to the Everton clash
Speaking to the talkSPORT Breakfast show on Wednesday, he said: ‘We’ve seen it so many time with Jose Mourinho, he can kill players. He has done it at every club he’s been at. At Man United, he tried to do it with Pogba and Shaw.
‘I feel that Dele Alli could be his new target. You see what he did with Danny Rose, which was a disgrace and he’s still Spurs’ best left-back.
‘I feel with Dele Alli, something has happened there between them. From what I heard, he wasn’t even meant to start the Everton game.
‘Steven Bergwijn had a migraine in the warm-up or before the game and that’s why Alli started.
‘For him to drag him off at half-time was a bit of an insult. He could have dragged off Harry Kane, he could have dragged off other players before Dele Alli and he’s dragged him.
‘There is something going on there and for Alli to get out with a swap deal to Real Madrid is a no-brainer. He’d do better at Real Madrid than he would at Spurs.’
