Spurs ace Dele Alli urged to listen to Real Madrid, Barcelona offers

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas says Dele Alli needs to leave for Spain.

Jenas thinks Alli will find it hard to turn down either Real Madrid or Barcelona should they come knocking.

“Should he stay at Tottenham? I don't know," said Jenas, who spent almost eight years at White Hart Lane as a player.

“What he's ­achieving at Spurs is brilliant and he'll play the games there, that's the guarantee.

“But you can't ignore it if ­Real come or Barca come. And they are the two clubs, ­essentially, because I don't see him moving within ­English football.

“Maybe Manchester City, if they start dominating ­European football, might start being attractive to him.

“But for that legacy element, if Real or Barcelona come calling, then you have to go and have that experience – otherwise you'll regret it for life."
