£100m Tottenham Superstar Responds To Transfer Rumours Saying ‘Anything can happen’

Dele Alli

Tottenham star Dele Alli hasn’t ruled out a move to a foreign club but doesn’t want to think about his future at the moment. The 21-year-old has been sensational for Spurs this season with 21 goals in all competitions and has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid.

“It’s important you enjoy the journey, whether I end up at Tottenham for the next 15 years and retire here,” Alli told Sky Sports. “I think it’s important for me not to get too carried away by what will happen in the future. The way football is, anything can happen at any time. I will enjoy my time here now… who knows what will happen in the future?”

Tottenham closed out their home campaign with a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the last game at the iconic White Hart Lane stadium. The Lilywhites confirmed their second position in the Premier League but Alli wasn’t exactly pleased with the final positioning in the table as Chelsea won the title, despite another exceptional performance by the Lilywhites.

“It’s a strange one,” the former MK Dons starlet added. “It’s disappointing but at the same time we can’t forget how well we’ve done as a team. We have definitely improved on last year but after the game against West Ham, everything before gets forgotten. It’s important we don’t forget about what happened and how far we’ve come.

“We have definitely improved as a team and are progressing. We did really well to get it down, at one point I think Chelsea were 14 points away from us, and we took it down to four points. It was one of the worst atmospheres I’ve been in after the game [West Ham United] in the changing room, everyone was so disappointed.”

Alli certainly has a long way to go in his career and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Real Madrid come up with a huge package to get another Tottenham man like they had done with Gareth Bale and Luka Modric. He was praised by former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who claimed that the youngster is worth £100m.

“I think he’s fantastic,” said the former Spurs boss of Alli.

“Can you tell me how all those scouts failed to spot him when he was playing for MK Dons every week? How did they end up waiting until Tottenham came in for him?

“It’s incredible that no-one took him. What a player, what a signing – what a steal at £5m.

“I think he’s worth £100m now. If Pogba’s worth £90m, Alli is worth more.

Spurs, however, are in a much better position to say no to Madrid thanks to the team Mauricio Pochettino built and another chase for the title cannot be ruled out in the upcoming campaign.

    Dele Alli’s response to the question posed was answered in a logical manner. If he could tell the future, he’d be the most sought after person Worldwide, not only by the likes of rape and pillage merchants Real Madrid but by Governments and protected by an army of armed bodyguards morning, noon and night. The boy, and that is what he is, very simply doesnt know what will happen with his career in the future, no players knows what the future hold for them. The muppets in the press, certain pindits and the sheep/cut and paste merchants who perpetuate in their various blogs, would have you believe that Daniel Levy would sell Alli and any of our more illustrious players in a blink of an eye if the right offer was made because he did just that with Berbatov and Carrick 10 years ago and more recently (4 & 3 years respectively), Modric and Bale. What the envious avoid mentioning, is that THFC has now metamorphosized into an entirely different animal to the one it used to be and the results over the past 2 years has reflected that change. Like Dele Alli said, anything can happen but I doubt that Daniel Levy would this time risk the wrath and fall out with the fans, Alli’s team mates and more importently, Pochettino himself who is partway through building something quite remarkable and special at THFC.
