Dele Alli has hinted he would be happy to stay at Tottenham for the remainder of his contract but hasn’t ruled out a move away in the future.
After an inconsistent first half of the season, Alli finished the campaign strongly and looks set to play a key role for England at the World Cup finals in Russia.
His two-goal display against Real Madrid in the Champions League back in November inevitably saw him linked with a move to the La Liga giants.
But Alli’s mixed form since then means he will almost certainly still be a Spurs player come the end of the transfer window.
During an interview with the London Evening Standard, the 22-year-old was asked if he has considered his future at Tottenham.
“I’d never say never to anything,” Alli said. “But you can’t look into the future too much as it takes the pleasure out of now. I’ve still got a few years on my contract.
“All the players can see the way the club’s heading. We’ve got a young team, a young manager, a new stadium, so it’s a great place to be at the minute. But you never know what’s going to happen in football.”
I don’t think Spurs fans have anything to worry about for now, although Alli has a very high ceiling and could quickly develop into player Real Madrid crave.
The Standard’s interview also covers Alli’s upbringing, his personal interests and much more – it’s well worth your time.
