Dele Alli’s Tottenham future is in doubt after England midfielder Jose Mourinho was left out of Sunday’s 5-2 win over Southampton, with Paris Saint-Germain promising to sign the midfielder with a loan before the end of the transfer window.
Mourinho’s victory over St Mary’s son Heung-mi Alli did not survive in London and also revealed after four goals to secure the first league victory of the season for LeapFrog that he did not travel to Bulgaria for Tottenham’s Europa League victory over Lokomotiv Plovdiv. The 24-year-old was offered by Real Madrid in talks last week to bring Gareth Bale back to north London on loan, now considered by the French champions, and Mourinho has ruled out the possibility of Alli leaving the loan.
“I am not responsible for the market and I do not know how to answer your question related to this,” he said. “The only thing I can say is that I dropped eight players and they continued training this morning because they are a big group, and these players include Dele. You can see our team, I can not start with everyone, and I can not have a bench without defenders or midfielders.
He added: “The squad is a puzzle and the bench is a small puzzle. Toby to sit on the bench [Alderweireld] And Serge [Aurier], Mass [Sissoko] Geo [Lo Celso], [Érik] And above [Steven] Bergwijn, I have four wings or three wings on the bench or number 10, and then there are no defenders. Everything is a puzzle, so Dele is out of these two games, most likely he will play on Tuesday and the others will be out. ”
Tottenham will travel to Leighton Orient in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, and Allie has been embroiled in controversy for the first time since coming on as a half-time substitute for last Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Everton. Although PSG appears to be at the forefront at this stage, it is reported that InterConnell has expressed interest in signing him, although he is interested in an initial loan deal with an option to make the transfer permanent.
Spurs said he hoped Allie would continue, but Mourinho said he wanted to keep him: “I need a balanced squad. That’s what I want. Should he be sacrificed? No. But a squad is a puzzle. We have a large squad of numbers that are very difficult to control. We have a lot of players for some positions, and some of them pay for it. ”- Guardian
