    If I'm brutally honest here i don't really see Dele with us for the long term, at the end of the day if he wants to leave at some point then he'll leave, regardless of what agent he's with...the kids got the world at his feet.
    Id love him to stay and become a legend for us, but this is football.

    My advice to him would be, get your head down, block out the gobshites and don't believe the hype.

    I'm honestly not bothered by this or players moving on.

    This club has moved on a level.

    Unbelievable stadium and training facilities, huge crowds (we was 2nd to only Barca In last years CL), massive sponsorship etc etc.

    Anyone who don't want to be here morefool them and there will be ten behind that want to join.

    Of course they'll be competing for him. He's a brilliant player and the type of guy that can rake in millions in commercial income.

    But with Spurs having a pretty exciting trajectory and the whole "Watch us rise" schtick from Nike, I think he may ride this wave for a season or two more.

    Probably right. Whoever wins the contract though must be made to understand that he will not be allowed to go to a direct rival...

    Going to be a a brilliant player but he's not vital losing Kane, eriksen or even Toby would be depressing but if he left and we got something like 200mln and when and got a world class mane type player like we saw last night with son using he's pace in behind it could even help us long term on the other hand please stay Ali :)

    Grrreat. So last night's win will be relegated to point 3 behind Alli moving once he has a new agent and PNev going on about Kane having to leave to be considered world class. Lovely.

    I think he has an awful lot to improve in his overall game before everyone gets over-excited.

    Yes, he delivers goals and assists at an impressive rate, but at bigger clubs he'd soon have the crowd on his back for all the 'Bambi on Ice' antics in between.

    He's certainly miles behind Eriksen in terms of getting everything right for 90 minutes - I'd be more concerned about losing Christian than Dele.

    Not even really sure what the story is here.He didn't leave his last agent to move to a worse one.Hes one of the hottest properties in world football ,of course every agent will want his signature.As said very replaceable imo.Honestly think he'd have a nightmare at Real ,he is no bale .As the song says,getting way to big for his boots.A lot more to prove yet that he deserves to be dinning at the top table.

    Yeah this is it for me, we have a few players that for us financially would be irreplaceable, I'm not sure Dele is at that level yet.
    He could well go on to be, but not yet.
    And could you imagine the sort of fee Levy would demand? I don't think normal numbers go that high, the maths lads would have to create some new ones.

    To be honest I don't know why we don't just win the Champions League and put an end to all this nonsense.

    Any one saying he wouldn't be a loss are mistaken. We would miss him but the squad depth wouldn't make it as terminal as it was with Bale. I'd like to think we will keep him for a few more years yet, I'd say players like Hazard, Sanchez and Dybala et al would all be higher on Madrid's list at the moment and Alli isn't a Barca style player.

    As someone not from the UK, I've only listened to talksport a couple of times because they had the international commentary and both times were miserable (one time they genuinely spent the entire match calling for Poch to bring on Paulinho to change the game even though we were winning). You guys only mention them when their shittalking Spurs. Are they normally not bad or just always bad but you listen anyways? Genuinely curious. Sorry if off topic.
