Insider reveals Man United scouting no1 target for six months despite £100m price tag
Manchester United have made Dele Alli their number one target, according to reports
Manchester United have been scouting Dele Alli for the past six months but Tottenham Hotspur want £100m for the England midfielder, according to reports in the British media.
Daily Express have quoted “football insider” Vincent Rodriguez on Twitter after the former agent claimed that the Red Devils have been closely monitoring the highly-rated Spurs midfielder.
Rodriguez wrote that Tottenham have placed a £100m price tag on the playmaker after Manchester United identified the former MK Dons star as their number one target.

Alli helped Tottenham to become the first team to beat Chelsea in 13 games earlier this month after the 20-year-old scored either side of half-time in a 2-0 win against the Premier League leaders.
The England international triggered a Tottenham comeback last weekend after his headed equaliser helped Spurs come from 2-0 down to rescue a 2-2 draw with title rivals Manchester City.
Manchester United are in sixth place and five points behind third-placed Tottenham in the title race.
