Gareth Bale delivers verdict on Tottenham star Alli, states where he could end up
By Dominic Toner
Gareth Bale believes that Tottenham ace Dele Alli has the ability to play for any club in the world in the future.
The 21-year-old has quickly emerged into one of the best youngsters in European football after two stellar seasons at White Hart Lane.
The Daily Mirror previously reported that Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested in Spurs’ starlet and that he is receiving attention from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Real Madrid maestro Bale feels that Alli has the qualities to play for any side in world football and hailed his impact in the game after such a short time.
“In terms of his ability he could play wherever he wants — he’s achieved so much in such a short period of time that he must have great confidence in his ability to affect games at a high level,” Bale told the Metro.

Alli could be offered the chance to follow in the footsteps of Bale, who left White Hart Lane in 2013 to join Spanish giants Madrid.
The Wales international has gone on to become a key player at the Bernabeu and made 147 appearances for the club.
He has scored 67 goals and supplied 51 assists in return and completed the move after impressing in the Premier League with Spurs.
Meanwhile, Alli has risen into a star player for the north London club during the past two years and has been pivotal this season.
The attacking midfielder has scored 19 goals and supplied 10 assists in just 42 appearances this campaign so far, which has caught the attention of some big-name suitors.
