Earlier this week, Alli was linked with a summer move to Real Madrid as part of the deal bringing Gareth Bale back to White Hart Lane. However, Bale’s return was announced on Saturday with Alli remaining in north London, though serious questions will now be asked over just how much longer the England midfielder will be a Tottenham player. Mourinho is famed for cutting players loose when they no longer feature in their plans, and talkSPORT was told earlier this week that Alli has become Jose’s latest target. “We’ve seen it how many times with Jose Mourinho? He can kill players,” said former Aston Villa star Gabby Agbonlahor. “He’s done it at every club he’s been at. At Manchester United he tried to do it with Paul Pogba and [Luke] Shaw.
