Tottenham could be willing to sell forward Dele Alli in the summer of 2019, according to The Times.
The newspaper claim that the north London club chairman Daniel Levy will not allow the 21-year-old to quit the club until they have spent “at least one season in their new stadium”.
The British outlet report that the player’s future will come under the microscope at that point even though he is in line to be handed a new contract this season to replace the current deal, which expires in five years.
There is a hunt for the services of the England forward not only from the world’s top clubs but also the most powerful agents who can grease the wheels of such deal.
According to the times, it claimed Alli has parted ways with his English adviser Rob Seagal last month, having been with his Impact Sports Management team since he was aged 15 and making his way at Milton Keynes Dons.
Super agents Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola are jostling to win over Alli as the England international prepares to appoint new agents for the next stage in his career.
The player decision to part ways with Segal is likely to have huge consequences for his future with the Spurs, even though he has a contract that stand until 2022.
The good thing in Dele Alli splitting with his representative with Tottenham?
I see no conceivable angle from which selling Alli would be a good move for Tottenham, even if it were to generate a £100million-plus fee. The England ace has emerged as one of the outstanding forwards in the Premier League since joining the White Hart Lane outfits permanently in the summer of 2015. In 100 matches for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Alli bagged 34 goals and created no fewer than 24 assists, a spectacular performance for an attacking midfielder who is yet to turn 22 until next April. Alli is still a long a way off his peak.
How likely is this going to happen?
Being under tutelage of either Mendes or Raiola would undoubtedly increase Alli’s ultimate goal is to leave Spurs and join Real Madrid or Barcelona, where the Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola have huge connections and are well placed to force a move. Dele Alli is unlikely to leave Tottenham next summer, but the following year is a different matter, entirely.
