Mourinho eyeing former Man United star as Dele Alli replacement

Jose Mourinho-Tottenham Hotspur

The English midfielder has been heavily linked with an exit from North London.

Tottenham ace Dele Alli might have impressed in the FA Cup and in return, got some praise from the manager Jose Mourinho but still the English midfielder is said to be on the transfer exchange.

Alli has been deprived of game time under Mourinho this season and the speculations over his future have spurred with each passing week.

PSG are looking heavily interested in recruiting Alli on loan in January due to the presence of former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who has also Christian Eriksen.

Now, the reports suggest that Jose Mourinho is interested in signing PSG ace Angel Di Maria as a part of Alli deal.

Di Maria has entered the final sixth months of his current deal at Parc Des Princes and it remains to be seen whether his compatriot Pochettino would persuade him to agree to a new deal.

Mourinho wants the former Manchester United flop a free transfer should he leave the French Capital in the summer.

Di Maria has been pivotal behind PSG’s domestic dominance over the course and the Argentine has literally resurrected his career with the French Champions.

This season, the ex-Real Madrid gaffer has racked up 2 goals and 5 assists in Ligue 1 while finding the nets only once in the Champions League.

It remains to be seen how Mourinho can persuade his former protege to join him at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs have been on another level in the Premier League this season and a veteran signing like Di Maria would only bolster their attacking options
