The England international has fast become one of the most exciting young players in Europe and has been in sensational form this season for Spurs.
Carlos has stated that Madrid could well make a move for the talented youngster, but says transfer negotiations are decided by the club’s president.
“He’s a brilliant player,” Carlos told the Sun. “I love him, I’ve seen him play some great games in England.
“Of course, it’s not up to me — transfers will, of course, be decided by the president. But, we definitely could sign him. He is undoubtedly good enough for Real Madrid.”
Alli has thrived under the guidance of manager Mauricio Pochettino since his move to White Hart Lane from MK Dons in 2015.
