With Tottenham Hotspur losing the FA Cup semi-final and then seeing some of their best players linked with a move away, it’s fair to say the punters propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern could do with some cheering up.
Well, that’s actually happened today, from a very unlikely source indeed. Per Sky Sports, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed his side AREN’T chasing Dele Alli this summer.

However, the City boss has reportedly told Sky Sports he’s not after the former MK Dons midfielder, despite praising his fantastic talent.
”He is a fantastic player, [a] good, new, English footballer. He’s a fighter. He’s good” he said.
”He’s someone who attacks the box and is one of the most fantastic players I have ever seen in my life. But Manchester City doesn’t want Dele Alli.”
As you can imagine, the resident Tottenham fans are delighted about this, hoping Alli sticks around for a few more years at least.
