Daniel Levy TEAMtalk

Dele Alli’s exit from Tottenham is a ‘matter of days’ away after Daniel Levy backed down to Jose Mourinho’s orders, according to a report.

Speculation about a departure from Spurs has continually hung around the player in recent months.

The England international has failed to enjoy a regular role under boss Mourinho this season, appearing only 12 times. More crucially, however, his four Premier League outings have amounted to 74 minutes.

Reports have claim that Paris Saint-Germain are keen to hand Alli a fresh start. Indeed, ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino recently took the head coach’s role at the French champions.

According to Todofichajes, the midfielder’s exit to the Parc des Princes will become a formality in the coming days.

The source notes that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has shown ‘resistance’ to the deal happening.

In addition, Pochettino is waiting patiently for the deal and already has plans as to how to implement the midfielder into his team.

In any case, Todofichajes adds that a meeting in the ‘next few days’ could prove decisive in completing the move.

Aside from his limited league chances, Alli has also struggled for action in the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

But summer signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has proved a catalyst; the Dane has slotted into Mourinho’s team brilliantly and become a trusted player for the Portuguese manager.

Elsewhere, the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso have earned chances ahead of Alli.

The manager does not seem to see a place in his team for the midfielder.

However, when asked about his plans on Friday, Mourinho refused to open up.
