When you think back to Dele Alli being worth £5 million, it almost seems ridiculous doesn't it?

Then aged just 18-years-old, the England international was making waves in League One with 16 goals for MK Dons from midfield.

Although many thought Spurs were wise to purchase Alli, few could have predicted the immediate impact the Milton Keynes-born star would have.

After just over two seasons in the white half of north London, Alli has scored 30 goals in 75 premier League outings and has won PFA Young Player of the Year award twice in a row.

However, it seems like he isn't the only talent to be coming out of Milton Keynes.

Striker Dylan Asonganyi has started the season on fire for MK Dons' Under-18s with nine goals in seven games.

The 16-year-old's talents have been evident for a while now after taking part in the England Under-16s’ training camp when he was just 13.

According to The Mirror, all of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and West Ham are interested in the prolific hitman and he is set to make his senior debut for the Dons in the coming months.


He doesn't turn 17 until December, so he could still make his debut as a 16-year-old just like Alli did back in 2012.

Alli is now one of the hottest properties in world football and it was reported in the summer that Real Madrid are monitoring his sitauation.

Although he is currently without an agent, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola, who looks after Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, are both looking to sign him and promise they can make a dream move happen.


Alli is said to be locked in contract talks with Spurs at the moment and it is believed they will offer their prized asset something around £100,000-a-week.

Realistically, that is still far less than what he could earn with a handful of clubs around the continent, but Spurs' wage structure means he won't be earning astronomical sums at the club in the near future.
