Mouriho continued: “The question is if I let Dele go without getting a player in exchange and I’m not going to answer that.
“It’s not a question that I am comfortable to answer. Of course, I would know how to answer. But I am not ready to answer. I am not ready to make public my vision of the situation.”
Mourinho’s comments on Alli’s future are in stark contrast to those he made recently about Harry Winks, who has been strongly linked with a move to Valencia.
The Spurs boss made it clear that Winks is not for sale under any circumstances, despite the midfielder playing less minutes this season.
“A player that I like, a player that I need, a player that the squad needs,” he said. “A player with a contract for a few years. A player we don’t want to sell, a play we don’t want to loan. So if somebody is working on that they are losing time.”
