Having Signed A £60,000-a-week Deal, Do Tottenham Midfielder’s Latest Actions Suggest He Is Looking For A Way Out?

Tottenham Hotspur star midfielder Dele Alli is preparing to change his agent, in a move that may have repercussions for the club’s rigid pay structure, as reported by The Daily Mail.

The England international has decided to part ways with his long-term representative Rob Segal and this will surely alert the continent’s biggest names to the possibility of snapping up one of the best English talents from Spurs next summer.

The 21-year-old joined from MK Dons for a paltry £5million, which is almost equivalent to a free transfer in this inflated market. Consistent performances over the last two seasons at the White Hart Lane have seen his stock rise tremendously.

He is currently earning £60,000-a-week at the club – a deal he signed last September, as Tottenham continue to keep a tight leash on the pay structure. Alli knows that his market value is more than triple the amount he is currently getting at the White Hart Lane.

There is no dearth of suitors as well, with both the Manchester clubs, as well as Chelsea being interested in the midfielder. Alli himself is reportedly keen on a move abroad, with reports in the past indicating that Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested as well.

So, how big a decision is this ‘change of agent’? He is assessing his options with a view of moving agencies but Alli has certainly opened up to his potential. The rigid structure at Tottenham has its downside as players are reportedly unhappy.

Think no beyond the latest Danny Rose interview, where he spoke of his demand that he is not ‘paid what I think I am worth’. The top earners at the club are Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, with the duo earning £110,000 per week including bonuses. If you compare this with what others earn at United, City or Chelsea, it wouldn’t make a pretty reading.

Alli’s latest move should make the club sit and take notice of its pay structure. It is high time that we start respecting our superstars and pay them their worth. The club won’t sell him this summer at any cost but a change of agent may spark a flurry of action next summer for Alli’s signature.

Do you think Dele Alli is changing agents to plan a move next summer?
