Gareth Bale wants this Tottenham ace to replace Cristiano Ronaldo - report
By Danny Wright
Gareth Bale wants Real Madrid to raid Tottenham for Dele Alli, according to a report.
Don Balon reports that the Welsh international wants the 20-year-old to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at the Spanish club.
Alli is one of the hottest prospects in the Premier League and has hit 15 goals for the club in all competitions this season.
Bale similarly discovered a hot streak of form for the north London club before securing a £86million switch to become a part of the Galacticos in 2013.
The 27-year-old hit 56 goals in 203 appearances for Spurs after beginning life at the club as a young left back.

As Bale gained experience and grew physically he began to play more and more of an attacking role and scored 26 goals and assisted 15 in his final season at White Hart Lane before the 11-time European Champions came calling.
Legendary footballer Ronaldo is now 32-years-of-age and there’s no doubt that Bale has recognised that the former Manchester United man is reaching the end of his career.
However his goalscoring record this season has by no means showed that as he has scored 25 goals in 32 appearances for the club in all competitions.
Alli will be hoping to help Tottenham book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend when they welcome Millwall to White Hart Lane.
The cup remains Spurs’ only real hope of silverware this season after crashing out of the Europa League and Chelsea seemingly running away with the league title.
