Dele Alli is unlikely to join Paris Saint-Germain or Real Madrid before the transfer window closes – and Daniel Levy wants to keep the midfielder at Tottenham, according to the Athletic.
Alli was left out of the Spurs squad that travelled to Southampton for Sunday’s 5-2 victory on the south coast. Jose Mourinho revealed Alli was not injured and simply missed out because there are “too many players” in the squad (via Goal).
Shortly after his omission was confirmed, Alli was linked with a move away. The Telegraph suddenly claimed PSG were in talks to sign the 24-year-old, who they have apparently admired for a long time.
Meanwhile, Spanish outlet AS believes Real Madrid turned down the opportunity to take Alli on loan as part of the deal that saw Gareth Bale return to Tottenham over the weekend.
However, despite the rumour mill pointing towards an exit for Alli, the Athletic’s David Ornstein says the former MK Dons star is ‘unlikely’ to join PSG or Real Madrid by the end of the window.
Another interesting tidbit: Spurs chairman Levy is said to be keen to keep Alli at the club. Ultimately, Levy probably has the final say.
