Tottenham have told both Barcelona and Real Madrid that the England midfielder, 21, is not for sale – even for £150million.

He signed a new six-year deal with the North London club last September and takes home around £50,000 a week.

And Spurs are reportedly confident he will sign a new £80,000-a-week deal.

But Alli raised concerns over his future by revealing plans to leave long-term agent Rob Segal when their agreement expires.

Tottenham are reportedly concerned that if he signs with a super agent like Mino Raiola or Jorge Mendes, they could struggle to agree a new contract.

Barcelona are under pressure to sign a top player having lost Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

They splashed out £135.5million on Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund but failed to land top targets Coutinho and Marco Verratti.

Rival reports claim Antoine Griezmann is Barca’s No1 target next summer.
