A report emanating from Spain today claims that Gareth Bale has urged Real Madrid to sign Spurs ace Dele Alli this summer, according to Spanish media outlet Don Balon.

The 21-year-old Tottenham star is widely regarded as one of the best young players in world football, after bursting onto the scene two years ago following his switch from League One outfit MK Dons.

Dele has scored 41 goals and registered 35 assists in 125 appearances for the Lilywhites, and he undoubtedly has a wonderfully exciting career ahead of him, wherever he ends up playing his football.

Don Balon claims that the Bernabeu very well could be the next destination for the England international, with Gareth Bale desperate for his side to sign the Spurs ace this summer.

There are questions marks over the future of Toni Kroos, and Don Balon claim that the Spanish giants view Dele as the ideal long-term replacement for the German star.

The England international is under contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2022, so it would take a quite astronomical bid from Madrid if they are to have any chance fo prising him away from north London any time soon.
