Huge Tottenham blow as star man is keen on a move abroad - report
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham have been dealt a huge blow with star man Dele Alli keen on a move abroad, according to a report.
The Daily Mail have claimed on their website that the 21-year-old attacking midfielder is looking to change his agent as he knows his market value is “more than triple” the current £60,000-a-week contract he is on in north London.
It is said that the England international’s thought process has alerted a host of rival management companies and that both Manchester United and City alongside Chelsea are interested in paying Alli more than what he currently is at Spurs.
However, it is also detailed that Euro giants Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are monitoring Alli’s situation and that he would like to play abroad at some point in his career.
This will of course be seen as a blow for Tottenham as both European giants would be able to offer Alli a lot more than what he is on at Spurs, while Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be keen to see the young star play the rest of his career in north London.

Football Insider verdict:
What has become clear this summer is that Tottenham have to break their wage structure if they are to keep a hold of their key players in the future. Spurs are known to have one of the best starting eleven’s in the Premier League, which has enabled them to finish in third and second place in the last two campaigns. However, their close league rivals like City and Chelsea are able to offer players a much higher wage deal and this day and age that is the priority for players. Therefore, despite sorting their players to long-term deals just last year Tottenham must start offering new contracts soon or risk a disgruntled squad.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Spurs are confident over this 27-year-old after long Pochettino talks.
