Dele Alli tipped to join Manchester United if Mauricio Pochettino becomes manager
Tottenham Hotspur midfield star Dele Alli has been tipped to make a sensational switch to rivals Manchester United if Mauricio Pochettino becomes the manager at Old Trafford, by talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham. (h/t Football.london)
Alli has been with Tottenham since 2015, having joined from lower league side MK Dons. The Englishman grew into one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League at the club, under the watchful eye of Pochettino.
However, the 24-year-old England international has lost his way a bit over the past year and as a result, finds himself frozen out by current manager Jose Mourinho. Indeed, the Portuguese tactician has started Alli in just two matches across all competitions and withdrew him at half-time in his latest appearance against Royal Antwerp in the Europa League.
Alli is said to have grown frustrated at his situation at the club and may look to force an exit in the January transfer window, with his place in the England national team on the line for the next year’s Euros. (h/t Daily Mail)
And now, Durham has insisted that there could be a possibility that Alli might end up at our rivals Manchester United if Pochettino takes over at Old Trafford in the near future. (h/t Football.london)
“If there is a vacancy at Man United and Pochettino gets the job, I can see him taking Dele Alli there and revitalising him. Dele Alli has had his football heart broken by Jose Mourinho.”

Pochettino has been heavily linked with the managerial hotseat at Manchester United for some time now. And with pressure continuing to mount on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Argentine’s name is once again doing the rounds as a replacement. (h/t Football.london)
However, it is very much unlikely that Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho would allow Alli to move to Old Trafford and strengthen a rival club.
