Dele must quit Spurs if the big boys come calling

Dele Alli has to quit ­ Tottenham if Real Madrid or Barcelona come calling for him this summer.That is the view of former Spurs star Jermaine Jenas, who thinks Alli will find it hard to turn down either Spanish club should they come knocking.

An article in The Mirror quotes Jenas as saying “Should he stay at Tottenham? I don’t know,” said Jenas,”What he’s ­achieving at Spurs is brilliant and he’ll play the games there, that’s the guarantee.

Jenas added: “But you can’t ignore it if ­Real come or Barca come. And they are the two clubs, ­essentially, because I don’t see him moving within ­English football.

Jens’s went on to say “Maybe Manchester City, if they start dominating ­European football, might start being attractive to him.
“But for that legacy element, if Real or Barcelona come calling, then you have to go and have that experience – otherwise you’ll regret it for life.”

The article adds that Gareth Bale and Luka Modric both quit Tottenham for Spain and quickly settled into life at the Bernabeu – and Alli’s style of play has already ­attracted interest from both La Liga giants. However Jenas has no doubt the suitors will still be swarming as the season draws to a close.

He added: “Harry Kane has recently said that that’s not for him and I totally believe him 100 per cent and I know where he’s ­coming from.But for Dele? To be at Spurs this season is great, but then if he has a good World Cup, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What the hell is jenas on about if they come calling you must go or you'll be regret it!!!
    BOLLOCKS. Look at Steven Gerrard, he had an opportunity to play abroad but wanted to stay at Liverpool. I wonder does he regret that? I don't think so.JT had an opportunity didn't leave. But stayed at Chelsea. Some people can't realise that not everyone wants to play for Madrid and Barcelona. Some like playing in England some are settled in their club, it's not always about playing for those Spanish giants.
    I can maybe understand if coming from a ex spurs player that's there now or had played for them in the past… But JENAS… Errrrr NO..
    I remember him being injured alot of the time while at spurs.. Almost as much as Anderton… ?

  2. Biggest load of shit I’ve read in a long long time .. absolute crap by one of the worst pundits in European football, if anything its quiet the opposite, so many haven’t gone & loved every ninute if there careers, Hamsik is one right now who’s enjoying the rewards of staying at his club when he’s been offered by so many

  3. TOTAL LOAD OF CRAP ! Everybody wants to sell our players – and it never ever stops.

    No one talks about selling other clubs players! IM TOTALY PISSED OFF WITH THIS SHITE!

    • Agreed dude. It's the same every season..
      Not a month goes by where a spurs player is mentioned with another club. Let's be real here if spurs paid wages like arsenal Chelsea man United you wouldn't hear so much chat about spurs players leaving. The wages are a big deal to these players hence why the prick media like linking spurs players with clubs who pay WELL.
