Tottenham look set to miss out on Premier League glory again this season, but they are confident that disappointment will not see Dele Alli move elsewhere.
The 20-year-old scored his 18th goal of the season to kick off a dramatic comeback against Swansea City on Wednesday amid speculation that both Real Madrid and Manchester City are hovering.
Yet, the Daily Mail report that Spurs are not worried about losing the starlet as they feel sure that neither of the two Champions League clubs will actually follow up their interest with a concrete offer.
It’s understood that while the England international remains on Madrid’s radar, they are more likely to opt for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard when they look to replace James Rodriguez and Isco this summer.
Pep Guardiola has a list of other targets too, so Dele is not thought to be his priority.
It could well be that Spurs are simply avoiding a transfer saga in the immediate future and will have to fight to keep hold of the former MK Dons midfielder next summer instead.
As they prepare for a season at Wembley, though, it is vital that the likes of Dele, Hugo Lloris, and Harry Kane stay put.
