According to a report published by Don Balon, Gareth Bale wants Tottenham star Dele Alli to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
Alli has established himself as one of the best up and coming talents in Europe and has notched 15 goals in the Premier League for Spurs this season.
Bale similarly established himself as one of the best talents in world football with Spurs before joining Madrid for a then world record fee of £85.3 million.
Ronaldo is now 32 years old and there is no doubt that his team-mates and club will understand that his performances will eventually decline with age.
The Portugal captain has however continued to be world class for his club this season, having bagged 25 goals in 32 matches in all competitions for the Galacticos this season.
It remains to be seen whether Alli will end up at Madrid in the near future. Madrid will certainly have the capital required to lure him, however whether he wishes to join the Spanish giants will be discovered in time.
