Dele Alli has long been a subject of some serious interest from top clubs around Europe. After bursting onto the scene two seasons ago, Spurs never had to look back on their glittering young prospect ever since. However, Dele Alli could finally make his move elsewhere after being promised moves to Manchester United or Real Madrid.
Following his decision to part ways with long-term representatives Impact Sports Management, Dele Alli has been courted by several top agents around the globe. Jorge Mendes, the agent of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mino Raiola, the cult figure among football agents, who handles the affairs of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Manchester United are particularly keen on bringing the young talent to either Real Madrid or Manchester United.
Real Madrid in particular, have a lot of reasons to go after a top player next summer, after choosing to remain silence this transfer window. The Spanish giants have already made a list of their top transfer targets, which includes the likes of Timo Werner, Robert Lewandowski, and Alexis Sanchez.
The gruelling fixtures in September have already tested Real Madrid’s depth this season, and it seems as if Los Blancos have terribly failed in that test. Madrid struggled to cope with the intensive schedule this month and it’s reflected on their poor start to the campaign. It seems pretty evident that they are lacking players who could outrightly replace the current first team, following the departures of James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata.
Dele Alli could provide necessary depth that is needed to succeed amongst the peers of top European clubs. He could even pose a strong challenge to the likes of Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, and Lucas Vazquez. Real Madrid were forced to bring in Borja Mayoral at times this season, due to lack of options in the offence and Dele Alli could well solve that problem for Zinedine Zidane.
Furthermore, Alli can add another dimension to Real Madrid’s offensive play with his clever movements and neat forward passing. He is a midfielder, filled with tenacity, which particularly bodes well for counter-attacking teams like Real Madrid. The 21-year-old was recently crowned as the second best under-21 player by French newspaper L’Equipe. Real Madrid prodigy Marco Asensio was hailed as the best U-21 at the moment, and it would be fitting to see the two footballing wonderkids united at Real Madrid next summer.
Unfortunately, Dele Alli won’t be available to face Real Madrid in their first meeting in this season’s Champions League group stage, which will be a blow for Mauricio Pochettino. However, the English International will return from his suspensive and be available in the return fixture in November.
