Real Madrid are considering a stunning summer swoop for Tottenham and England midfielder Dele Alli.
Current PFA Young Player of the Year Alli has is being monitored closely by the Spanish giants who have raided White Hart Lane for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in recent years.
Real are currently serving a one-window transfer ban, but will be clear to make a move in the the summer.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has already admitted Alli is worth at least £50million, and said the 20-year-old midfielder has the ability to be among the best players in Europe for the next decade.
Alli signed a new six-year contract in September, worth nearly £60,000-a-week.
It more than doubled his salary after penning a new five-year contract a year ago worth £25,000 a week following his move from League One football with MK Dons in summer 2015.
News of Real’s interest will put Spurs under pressure to table fresh terms once again to try to keep the player happy.
Starlet Alli, also being watched by French champions Paris Saint-Germain, has just scored successive Premier League braces in away wins over Southampton and Watford to take his top-flight tally for the season to eight already.
He hit 10 goals last term and bagged 16 from his first 50 Premier League games — more than twice the combined tally of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
MirrorSport understands Alli would find it extremely hard to turn down a huge move to Spain.
Real Madrid have been banned from signing players this month by world governing body FIFA after a row over signing young players from outside Spain.
But they are planning to shake up their squad in the summer, with forwards James Rodriguez and Isco among the possible departures.
The Spanish club pay massive salaries.
