Former Aston Villa striker, Gabriel Agbonlahor has made a huge claim, revealing that Dele Alli and Jose Mourinho fell out before Tottenham Hotspurs 1-0 loss to Everton over the past weekend.
Alli was substituted at half-time for Moussa Sissoko in what was a terrible performance from Tottenham and now Agbonlahor has claimed that the midfielder had a disagreement with Mourinho in the lead-up to their opener.
"I feel like they need a No 10 as well because I'm hearing from a good source that Dele Alli and Mourinho have fallen out. 'We've seen it so many time with Jose Mourinho, he can kill players. He has done it at every club he's been at. At Man United, he tried to do it with Pogba and Shaw," he said to talkSPORT via Dailymail.
"I feel that Dele Alli could be his new target. You see what he did with Danny Rose, which was a disgrace and he's still Spurs' best left-back. I feel with Dele Alli, something has happened there between them. From what I heard, he wasn't even meant to start the Everton game. Steven Bergwijn had a migraine in the warm-up or before the game and that's why Alli started.
"For him to drag him off at half-time was a bit of an insult. He could have dragged off Harry Kane, he could have dragged off other players before Dele Alli and he's dragged him. There is something going on there and for Alli to get out with a swap deal to Real Madrid is a no-brainer. He'd do better at Real Madrid than he would at Spurs."
This comes in the wake of reports that Spurs are keen to bring back Gareth Bale from Real Madrid with it emerging that the Los Blancos will agree to pay in excess of 50 per cent of his astronomical wages of up to £500,000-a-week in order to facilitate the deal.
