Once again, the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have been waxing poetic about Dele Alli since their weekend win.
Having led the side to a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the season opener, the 21-year-old once again proved just how much of a difference maker he can be at the top level. Which is exactly why reports from the Sun have gone down so well.
They claim Daniel Levy has told potential suitors Barcelona and Manchester City that the England star WON’T be sold at any price. Indeed, even if a £150m offer is made for the former MK Dons youngster, Spurs will reportedly snub it.
Neymar recently broke the world transfer record at £198m in his move from the Camp Nou to PSG, while Monaco sensation is understood to be valued at around £160m. With that in mind, Levy is believed to see no reason why his playmaker can’t be considered in the same bracket.
One of the most exciting talents in Europe, our Tottenham-mad punters are desperate to see him stick around for the long run, having seen the club sell top talents over the years.
Surely an offer of such ilk would change Levy’s mind. Breaking a world transfer record would be huge, especially for a man who they purchased for such little money from League One.
Levy drives a hard bargain, though keeping the European powerhouses away in the long run may prove too difficult.
