Dele Alli ‘furious’ as new reason for failed PSG move from Spurs emerges
Date published: Thursday 4th February 2021 10:54
Dele Alli was reportedly left furious by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s refusal to allow an option to buy clause in any possible loan deal with Paris Saint-Germain scuppered the move.
Alli, 24, looked set to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in January. The England midfielder has fallen out of favour with Spurs chief Jose Mourinho.
From being a regular starter under Mauricio Pochettino, the talented midfielder has barely featured this term. He has made just four top-flight appearances and one start in 2020-2021.
The former Milton Keynes Dons ace has played six times in the Europa League. But he needs regular league action if he is to be considered for England’s campaign at this summer’s delayed European Championship.
With Pochettino now in charge of PSG, a reunion seemed on the cards. An 18-month loan deal was mooted but the Ligue 1 giants wanted Spurs to grant them the opportunity to buy.
And, according to 90m, that seems to have been the stumbling block to his winter exit. Levy was unprepared to lose a player who the north Londoners have invested time and money in.
The chairman also feels he could return to his best form and wants to stick with an international class player. Alli is said to cut a frustrated figure at Tottenham, with little sign of anything changing in the near future.

Mourinho’s past resurfacing
Mourinho may have won many trophies in his managerial career but he is a man who polarises option. He has tended to fall out with players in previous jobs to the detriment of both the player and team.
A recent example is Paul Pogba at Manchester United who rarely showed his best under the Portuguese tactician’s guidance. The France World Cup winner became a peripheral figure until Mourinho finally departed Old Trafford.
There is no sense that the same thing will happen at Spurs but there is clearly tension between the two men. On the club’s ‘All or Nothing’ series on Amazon Prime, Mourinho told Alli he was a ‘lazy’ trainer.
While he also praised the schemer, it seems as though the damage was done.
Thoughts will soon turn to England. Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate is a known admirer of Alli but has options in midfield.
