Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli reportedly fell out with manager Jose Mourinho ahead of Spurs' 1-0 loss to Everton on Sunday, amid talk the midfielder could be included in a swap deal to resign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

Bale has been linked with a return to north London and his agent, Jonathan Barnett, has confirmed the forward is interested in joining Tottenham.

"Gareth still loves Spurs," Barnett told BBC Sport Wales. "We are talking. It’s where he wants to be."

The Telegraph are reporting that Tottenham chief Daniel Levy is readying an offer which would see Dele join Real for the season and Spurs pay half of Bale's wages.

It comes after Mourinho substituted Dele at half-time in Spurs' loss to Everton, leading Gabriel Agbonlahor to claim that the pair have 'fallen out'.

Agbonlahor told talkSPORT: "I feel like they need a No 10 as well because I'm hearing from a good source that Dele Alli and Mourinho have fallen out."

He later added: "We've seen it so many time with Jose Mourinho, he can kill players.

"He has done it at every club he's been at. At Man United, he tried to do it with Pogba and Shaw.

"I feel that Dele Alli could be his new target. You see what he did with Danny Rose, which was a disgrace and he's still Spurs' best left-back.

"I feel with Dele Alli, something has happened there between them. From what I heard, he wasn't even meant to start the Everton game.

"Steven Bergwijn had a migraine in the warm-up or before the game and that's why Alli started.

"For him to drag him off at half-time was a bit of an insult. He could have dragged off Harry Kane, he could have dragged off other players before Dele Alli and he's dragged him.

"There is something going on there and for Alli to get out with a swap deal to Real Madrid is a no-brainer. He'd do better at Real Madrid than he would at Spurs."
