I think it’s madness to sell him. He’s only 24 and has a rare gift to unlock defences and score goals. The things you said he excelled at are the most important and valuable things a player can contribute.Potential for what? He has really ever only excelled at doing one singular thing on the pitch, and has otherwise never documented this supposed potential. When he does routinely nail that thing he does do you have to have him on the pitch. When he doesn't, he is the most expendable in the squad. Dele needs to score goals, or there is no point in not selling him for big cash.
The club obviously need to raise money and he’s been set up as the problem. Yes he’s been off form but you don’t throw away all that potential.
If anyone should be surplus to requirements I’d sell Moura before Alli.
