Son Heung-min’s best friend leaves Tottenham

Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham)’s ‘best friend’ Dele Alli (28, Everton) has been delayed in his return. This could lead to an unexpected loss for Tottenham.

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, citing the UK’s Mirror, Alli, who underwent groin surgery last month, has not played enough games for Everton and could cost Tottenham as much as £10 million.

Alli formed the so-called “DESK” line under Mauricio Pochettino alongside Christian Eriksen (32, Manchester United), Son Heung-min and Harry Kane (31, Bayern Munich).

One of England’s top talents, Alli rose through the ranks at a young age, earning a starting spot at Tottenham. However, he gradually lost his way and was shunned by managers Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

Eventually, Alli moved to Everton in January 2022 to seek a new path. The Toffees added an option for no fee to pave the way for Alli. The option stipulated that Alli would receive a minimum of £10 million if he played at least 20 games for Everton.

However, Alli has only made 13 appearances for Everton.

He hasn’t played for Everton since August 2022, when he returned from a loan spell at Besiktas (Turkkiye). However, he is still recovering from groin surgery and needs to play seven more games to reach 20 for Everton.

Alli shocked the world in July last year when he spoke to Sky Sports’ Gary Neville about a childhood sexual assault. 스포츠토토 She was sexually abused by her mother’s friend when she was six years old and is still suffering from the trauma.

She confessed that she underwent rehabilitation in the United States to overcome this trauma. Ultimately, the childhood trauma led to insomnia, which directly contributed to his decline in performance.

It is not known when he will be able to play again. Even Everton manager Sean Dyche has admitted that he doesn’t know when Alli will be able to return, which could make it difficult for him to play for Everton this season.

Tottenham were valued at £40 million, including options, when they sent Alli to Everton. However, with Everton’s dire financial situation, the Toffees stand to lose £10 million if Alli’s option is not triggered.

Tottenham tried again to negotiate with Everton for Alli in December. Tottenham tried to reduce the £10 million payment to £8 million, but their efforts were unsuccessful.
