DELE ALLI'S Tottenham career may be over after Jose Mourinho snubbed the midfielder for the second game in a row.
Despite a promising pre-season, the England international only made it 45 minutes into the new campaign before being hooked by his irate manager.
Having been subbed during the opening weekend defeat to Everton, he was not even on the bench for wins over Lokomotiv Plovdiv and Southampton.
It is a far cry from the star who emerged in the early weeks of Mourinho's tenure, scoring four and setting up three more in his manager's first five games.
But, with there plenty of time between now and the October 5 deadline, he could soon be let go.
Here, SunSport details five destinations for Dele Alli to revamp his career.
PSG may have finally got their season up and running with a win over Nice on Sunday, but reinforcements are always on the French club's agenda.
Having incorporated steady Premier League players Ander Herrera and Idrissa Gueye into his squad, Thomas Tuchel could be the ideal coach for Dele.
The Telegraph believe he is already in discussions about a move to Paris.
And PSG are one club who could offer Dele a fresh chance in a new country with a huge chance of silverware.
Young, English talent has been a focal point of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's rebuilding job at Old Trafford.
So why not the 24-year-old MK Dons graduate?
Motivation would surely not be an issue when pitching up at Mourinho's former gaffe, joining a team desperate to make up for lost time.
With Donny van de Beek's arrival, Manchester United are adding competition to their midfield and Dele Alli would be aanother shot in the arm.
With Real Madrid not bothered about the Tottenham outcast, perhaps rivals Atletico are well-placed for a run at him?
Diego Simeone is even more of a ball-breaker than Mourinho and has raised some of LaLiga's most awesome midfielders in the past decade.
Fitting Dele into his system should be fairly easy for 4-4-2 devotee Simeone, with a stint on the flanks or in behind the striker also possible.
Los Rojiblancos are hardly flushed with cash this autumn and thus are relying on loans, with a temporary switch to Spain potentially appealing to the player.

The Chinese Super League may not be the most obvious destination for Dele.
Stars such as Carlos Tevez, Didier Drogba and Hulk all headed east far later in their careers.
If Dele was to move to China, SIPG may be the most likely club given their penchant for attacking talent.
Hulk, Oscar and Marko Arnautovic are all on their books, as well as ex-Brighton man Aaron Mooy, as they look to reclaim the CSL title.
Another club reportedly possessing a long-held interest in Dele, Inter Milan could make a persuasive argument to the midfielder.
Romelu Lukaku, Victor Moses, Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez have all revitalised their career after swapping England for the Giuseppe Meazza.
While former Spurs pal Christian Eriksen has had a harder time of it in Italy, this year still represents Inter's best chance at the Scudetto in almost a decade.
Some might say their chances at a major trophy in 2020-21 are rather better than Tottenham's...
