Tottenham’s aim this summer was to keep their first team together, and with the exception of losing Kyle Walker to Manchester City, that’s what they’ve done.
The worry will be that long-term, that could change due to the club’s strict wage structure.
The Daily Mail report that Dele Alli is one player considering his worth, as he is aware he could triple his £60,000 a week wages elsewhere.
The England international has, therefore, started the process of changing agencies with a view to potentially moving on next summer. The former MK Dons star has always been represented by Rob Segal up until now.
It’s thought Manchester United, Chelsea, and Manchester City would be interested, while the 21-year-old is most keen on a move abroad, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain the most likely options.
Alli has scored 29 league goals since moving to north London from Milton Keynes. Despite the huge impact he has made at White Hart Lane, he is yet to win any silverware with the club.
Tensions over wages seem to have increased since Danny Rose’s explosive interview with the Sun, as Tottenham are not competing with the top clubs when it comes to what they pay their players. Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris are the only stars on more than £100,000 a week.
