Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur may not pursue a deal with each other anymore amid stagnant talks.
With the start of the 2020-2021 Premier League season, a great deal is expected out of Tottenham Hotspur. The north London side appointed Jose Mourinho as their coach last season and he has a great reputation of winning titles wherever he goes.
Mourinho has also made the addition of some star players into the squad this transfer window with Gareth Bale coming on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, and Sergio Reguilon also joining the club after lifting the Europa League for the 2019-2020 season with Sevilla.
However, two matchdays have passed, and the Lilywhites have put up a mixed bag of performances, losing out 1-0 to Everton and winning 5-2 against Southampton. Team performance aside, one of the key things to take away from the matches was that Spurs’ star player, Dele Alli has not played a prominent role as yet.
The start of a season is an important time for all teams as it determines how the rest of the season is going to progress, and the reluctance of Mourinho to start Alli has raised eyebrows and many presume it might be the start of the 24-year-old falling down the pecking order in the team despite their relation from last season.
Questions regarding the Englishman’s future were starting to be asked, with French side Paris Saint-Germain being interested in the midfielder. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy refused to sell the player at a fee that would be less than 100 million euros which took a permanent transfer out of the question.
As a result, the only obvious and viable route to add the midfielder to their team would have been that of a loan. The talks revolving around the former MK Dons player were eventually continued regarding a loan for a single season, but recent reports suggest that the Parisians might be looking to pull out of the move.
This news comes as a result of PSG failing to finalize a deal and a price to bring the Tottenham star because they thought that the financial terms surrounding the deal were extremely difficult to work with. As of now, Alli would not be on the move team anytime soon and only time will tell if he will regain his position.
