Reports: Premier League Star Would Prefer To Join FC Barcelona Over Real Madrid
An English midfielder is said to be targeted by both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, but he reportedly wants to play with Lionel Messi.
According to Diario Gol, Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli is being chased by both Spanish giants, but given a choice between them, he would choose the Catalan giants because of his admiration for the club's Argentine superstar.
The Englishman has been in impressive form since breaking into Spurs' first team last season, seeing many compare him to the likes of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.
Along with Harry Kane, Alli has been strongly linked with Los Blancos, but Barca are also said to be after the player's signature.
It is believed that Alli could cost about £70 million (R1.2 million) as his contract with the Lilywhites only expires in 2022.
The player has been instrumental for Spurs this season, scoring 21 goals and assisting a further 11 strikes from midfield.
