Midfielder Dele Alli has become one of the sensational names in the Premier league after almost putting Spurs on the verge of their first league title in more than four decades. The club are the only competitor for Chelsea in the remaining few weeks of the Premier League action.
They have managed an incredible seven-game winning run following the 4-0 win over Bournemouth. The club seems to have learnt from the mistakes of last season when they collapsed towards the end of the campaign. Since he has been such an influential part, several transfer rumours surrounding the midfielder have once again started despite the player putting into
Since Alli has been such an influential part of the team, several transfer rumours surrounding the midfielder have once again started despite the player putting pen to paper only a few months ago.
Alli received a major boost to his wage packet after signing a contract worth around £65,000 per week. The contract runs until the summer of 2022. Even though the deal still has plenty more years to run, the Daily Mirror now reports that Tottenham are concerned about the player’s morale being affected with all the transfer stories going around.
Most of the clubs interested in Alli would be able to pay in excess of £150,000 a week for the midfielder.
This new contract is expected to make Alli as one of the top earners in the Spurs squad alongside Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane. The duo have been extremely important to Spurs just like Alli. This new contract will extend the player’s stay at the club to 2023, thus putting his wages at a minimum of £40 million up until that period. Even then, he will prove to be a bargain for Spurs after having paid just £5 million for his services back in 2015.
Alli has been one of the top names in European football over the last couple of months. This has attracted attention primarily from Real Madrid, who are on the lookout for the next marquee signing in order to replace Cristiano Ronaldo. The club’s last major signing was Gareth Bale from Tottenham back in 2013. The Welsh winger was signed for a huge £85 million, which made him the most expensive player at the time, and it is believed that Alli will be commanding a similar fee if he is to go on sale in the market now.
However, Spurs are not even expected to consider selling the player, as they have every facet required to keep a top player – Champions League football, a huge stadium, and the ability to challenge for trophies.
