Dele Alli moving from Tottenham to Real Madrid hasn’t been covered so much recently, but there’s a Sunday claim which brings the move back into focus.
Don Balon love claiming they know what superstar La Liga players are saying within their clubs about transfers.
If the Spanish website are to be believed, and it’s a very big IF, then Real Madrid and Barcelona stars are constantly telling their clubs which players to sign and which ideas to discard.
Their latest claim is that Luka Modric is aware his legs don’t have very long left and has identified his replacement, and that’s Tottenham star Dele Alli.
Real Madrid are ‘crazy’ in their search for a replacement and the Croatian has thrown Alli’s name into the mix, with it claimed it would be a ‘bomb’ signing… something to shake the market.
The 32 year old is said to follow Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham closely and that’s how he’s become so convinced that Alli is the man Florentino Perez should be looking at. He believes Real Madrid should make a move for Alli before any other top European club do so, and therefore secure his long term successor.
Given the Spanish media are now pretty much in agreement that Real Madrid won’t try to sign Harry Kane because Daniel Levy would be too difficult to deal with, this one can also go in that bracket.
