Man City linked with world record bid for Dele Alli

Manchester City are ready to make a world-record bid to sign Tottenham’s 20-year-old midfielder Dele Alli – eclipsing the £89m paid by Manchester United for Paul Pogba.

According to the Daily Express, the midfielder who has been linked with moves to Paris-Saint Germain and Real Madrid in recent weeks is also wanted by Pep Guardiola.

It’s frustrating as a Spurs fan to yet again read more fabricated nonsense from the Sunday papers, but as a Spurs blog – we have to cover it and give our opinions.

I’m sure there isn’t a team in the world who would want to sign Dele Alli – however persuading Daniel Levy and co to part company with England’s brightest talent is another question.  There would be a revolt if we sold him.

We do have a stadium to pay for, but selling Dele would be a massive mistake and something which the Spurs hierarchy would hopefully not entertain.

One thing is for sure, players like Dele need to be playing regular Champions League football.  Finishing in the top four has never been so important for us to retain our star players.

  1. Ali and the rest of the team were woeful yesterday. As we were against Man. City. Against the big boys we bottle it. I doubt we will finish top four. And Poch will throw the cup competitions in his attempt at trying. If we field a weakened team at Fulham we will go out. I’ve been a season ticket holder for 33 years and will of course continue but I’m going to scrub my cup auto pay. We don’t give a s*it about the cups. It’s tragic to see Spurs blow the cups year in year out.

    • well said Kieth ive been going since i was 11 i am 68 now i and my son dont bother with the cup games or europy league the club just use them like a friendly why should we bother if the club dont it makes the cups a second class pain in the arse

  2. not sure why we’re downbeat.. if you told me last season that we’re be second in the league even after playing city, man u, Chelsea & the arse, with abetter points total than last season i’d snapped their hands off.
    of course it’s tight but don’t forget that most of our top six teams have to play each other still, including against a Chelsea side flying.
    keep the faith, there’s a long way to go with lots of twists & turns left.
    as for the world record bid to buy Ali…. sorry but I can’t type anymore because of the tears of laughter filing my eyes.
