Manchester City are prepared to break the world transfer record to lure Dele Alli to the Etihad.

According to a report in The Express the City board have sanctioned a deal and are prepared to go above the £89m that Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba.

Alli has maintained his incredible progress this term at Spurs and has already been linked with Real Madrid and Paris St Germain.

Spurs paid MK Dons £5m for the teenager two years ago and could collect 20 times that fee in the summer if a bidding war breaks out.

Pep Guardiola is expected to make massive changes at City in the summer with money appearing to be no object to give the former Barcelona boss the tools that he wants to work with.

Spurs gave the midfielder a new contract earlier this year but will have their work cut out to compete with the riches on offer from City and other major clubs who are eyeing up the 20-year-old.
