While Paul Pogba has been making headline across all of Europe, Dele Alli has become a popular figure in England, particularly after his breakout season with Tottenham Hotspur and rise to the starting ranks of the Three Lions.
Alli’s talent has particularly attracted former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp, who believes Alli might be a better prospect than Pogba.
According to the Sun, Harry Redknapp revealed that he would not swap Dele Alli for Paul Pogba even as the French midfielder is poised for a possible record-setting move to Manchester United. Redknapp added that he would want Alli over Pogba for the long-term.
“(Pogba) is a great player, there’s no doubt about that,” Redknapp said.
“But I wouldn’t swap him for Dele Alli.
“If you asked me, Dele Alli or Pogba who do you want? I’m taking Dele Alli in the long term.”
The 20-year-old Alli finished the 2015-16 season with 10 goals and nine assists in the Premier League. Pogba, meanwhile, finished with eight goals and 12 assists in Serie A after his fourth year with the club.
Per Sun Sport, the fee Manchester United are willing to pay for Pogba could rise a nine-digit fee.
