Harry Redknapp makes bold claim about Tottenham midfielder and Paul Pogba

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp wouldn't swap Delle Alli for Paul Pogba

Harry Redknapp has insisted that he would pick Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli over Juventus star Paul Pogba.

The 20-year-old England international enjoyed a whirlwind first season in the Premier League after Tottenham signed Alli in a £5m deal from MK Dons last summer.

Alli was named the PFA young player of the year after the Spurs youngster scored 10 goals and made nine assists in 32 Premier League appearances in the 2015/16 campaign.

However, Manchester United target Paul Pogba has won far more silverware than Alli after the France midfielder helped Juventus to win four successive Serie A titles.

According to Spanish media outlet AS, the Euro 2016 star could be set for a £102m world-record move to the Red Devils just four years after Pogba left Old Trafford to join Serie A giants Juventus.

But former Tottenham manager Redknapp insists he would pick Alli over Pogba in the long-term despite the French midfielder’s impact for club and country.

“He’s [Pogba] a great player, there’s no doubt about that, but I wouldn’t swap him for Dele Alli,” Redknapp told BetSafe.

“If you asked me, Dele Alli or Pogba who do you want? I’m taking Dele Alli in the long term.”

Pogba has scored 34 times in 178 appearances in all competitions for Juventus over the past four years in Turin.

Alli was named in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2016 but was unable to help the Three Lions suffer a humiliating exit at the hands of Iceland.
