Alli set for THIRD new contract in 16 months as Spurs keep Real Madrid at bay

Date Posted,April 14, 2017

Dele Alli is to be offered a new, long-term contract worth around £40million to to keep him at Tottenham.

It will be Alli’s THIRD new deal in the space of just 16 months. The 21-year-old midfielder signed a revised contract last September that put him in the £55,000-a-week bracket and runs to 2022.

Now the Spurs hierarchy are ready to double Alli’s money to put him on a par with the likes of Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris as the club’s top earners.

The new deal will extend his stay to at least 2023 and guarantee he will earn a minimum of around £40m in that time.

Alli has been an outstanding success at Spurs since joining from MK Dons for a bargain £5million in 2015.

Spurs are well aware of Alli’s growing status as one of world football’s brightest talents. There is interest in the youngster from Real Madrid and Barcelona and both Spanish giants would match the then world record £85.5million that Real paid to take Gareth Bale from White Hart Lane.

But Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is determined to lift the profile of the club in Europe as they prepare to move into their new stadium at the start of the 2018-19 season.
