Mourinho Crushes Dele Alli Transfer Rumors, Explains Midfielder’s Absence

Dele Alli Transfer Rumors

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli’s was once again dropped by head coach Jose Mourinho from the squad who recorded a 5-2 win at Southampton.

There is likely to be a reluctance to sell Alli on a permanent basis from chairman Daniel Levy particularly for a player who not long ago was valued in the region of £100million.

On whether he wanted to keep the 24-year-old, Mourinho said on Sunday: ”I want a balanced squad. That’s what I want. Can he still be in a balanced squad? Yes.  

”Does he need to be sacrificed? No. But a squad is a puzzle.”

And on whether Alli could be sold, Mourinho, who said the midfielder could play against Leyton Orient in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, added: ”I left eight players behind, they stayed training this morning because they are a big group and Dele is among these players.

”You could see our team, I cannot start with all of them and I cannot have a bench without defenders or midfielders.

”Everything is a puzzle so, in these two matches Dele stayed out, probably Tuesday he will play and others will stay out.”
