With Mauricio Pochettino putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal, ESPN FC’s Alejandro Moreno explains why he’s the right man to move Spurs forward.

Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder Dele Alli has said he would “never say never to anything” but stressed that now is an exciting time to be a Spurs player.

Alli, a key member of England manager Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad, has been reported as a potential target for La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

“I’d never say never to anything,” he told ES Magazine. “You never know what is going to happen in football.

“I have still got a few years left on my contract. We [Tottenham] have got a young team, a young manager, a new stadium — it is a great place to be at the minute.

“All the players can see the way the club is heading, but you can’t look into the future too much as it takes the pleasure out of now.”

Alli said he was looking forward to England’s World Cup campaign, which begins against Tunisia on June 18, and was optimistic that they could succeed.

“I am over the moon to be selected for the World Cup — it is what you dream of as a kid,” he added.

“We have got a great manager and an ambitious young squad. I am confident we can have a successful tournament.”
