Real Want Star To Copy Coutinho & Force EPL Exit?
Real Madrid Want Star To Copy Philippe Coutinho & Force EPL Exit?
Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly desperate to sign a certain Premier League star, and want him to follow Philippe Coutinho's lead by forcing a move to LaLiga.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is one of two English players – the other being his teammate Harry Kane – Los Blancos are keeping a close eye on.
According to Spanish publication Don Balon, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has been in contact with the Englishman's new agent in the hope he can deliver the player to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 21-year-old cut ties with his previous representative earlier this season, and has hired the services of super-agent Jorge Mendes to do business for him.
Mendes, whose client base includes Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez, Diego Costa and Jose Mourinho, is in close contact with Perez, which may improve Alli's chances of moving to Madrid in the future.
Real's president is hoping the Portuguese agent can get his new client to follow the example of Coutinho's example, who is said to have told Liverpool he would not play for them again until they sanction his transfer to FC Barcelona.
Alli has made 123 appearances for Spurs since joining them in 2015, scoring 41 goals and assisting a further 34 strikes along the way.
