Wow! Jose addresses rumours that PSG linked Alli is leaving Tottenham this summer
Jose Mourinho has addressed the rumours that Dele Alli could be leaving Tottenham this transfer window.
Alli has been the subject of much transfer speculation over the past few weeks, as reports in the media have suggested that Jose Mourinho will allow him to leave, with both Real Madrid and PSG ready to offer him a summer move.
He was once again left out of the matchday squad against Southampton on Sunday afternoon, in which Tottenham run out 5-2 winners, and that has once again stirred up reports that he has played his last game for the club.
Asked if the mercurial playmaker could complete a move away from Spurs in the coming weeks, Mourinho was quoted on Sky Sports: “I’m not responsible for the market. I’m not able to answer your question on that. I can only say I left eight players behind training. They are a big group and Dele was among this group.
“The same way a squad is a puzzle and in the same way so is the bench. I cannot have three wingers and a No 10 and then no defender. Dele stayed out but probably Tuesday he will play. I want a balanced squad. He doesn’t have to be sacrificed.”
There is no question that Alli has great ability and is a real exciting talent in the Premier League, so if Spurs did sell him before he really gets to work under Mourinho, id could be a big mistake from the club.
He offers something different in this Tottenham attack, and although he hasnt been at his best over the last 12 months, he is still worth having in the squad
