Dele Alli refuses to rule out Spurs exit

Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli has refused to rule out an exit from the club, although has admitted that Spurs is a ‘great place to be.’

The Spurs playmaker has had a phenomenal rise from promising MK Dons player to England regular over the last four years. He moved to White Hart Lane in 2015, where he has gone on to make 146 appearances and score an impressive 46 goals, as well as winning 24 caps for his country.

There have been rumblings over the last few years that Alli is angling for an improved deal at Tottenham, with the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all thought to be interested in his services.

Spurs, who are currently preparing to move back to White Hart Lane where their new stadium is close to completion, have a strict wage structure, with even the likes of 30 goal-a-season striker Harry Kane earning the relatively modest salary of £110,000-a-week.

Now, Alli, who has three years left on his current deal has refused to rule out a move away from the club that has propelled him onto the global stage.

Speaking to ES Magazine, Alli said: “I’d never say never to anything. You never know what is going to happen in football.

“I have still got a few years left on my contract. We have got a young team, a young manager, a new stadium, so it is a great place to be at the minute. All the players can see the way the club is heading.”

Alli is currently preparing to jet off to this summer’s World Cup with England, where they will face Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the group stages.
