FOOTBALL star Dele Alli has been spotted snogging the daughter of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
The Spurs and England midfielder — who has not scored in the Premier League all season — cosied up with Maria, 20, at a rooftop bar.

Dele, 25, was closely marking her as dozens of other drinkers looked on in London.
Fittingly for a player who has spent most of the season as a sub, he made his move on Maria as they sat together on a bench.
It appeared that he had put his bitter split from model Ruby Mae, 23, behind him.
He leaned in for a smooch after he and Maria chatted for hours at the capital’s trendy Cloud 9 bar.
Dele, in a white T-shirt and green baseball cap over his newly dreadlocked hair, hugged and kissed Maria, who was wearing a white hoodie.
It is understood that Dele first met Maria last month.
An onlooker told The Sun: “Dele and Maria didn’t seem to have a care in the world.

“They didn’t mind who saw them as they smooched in front of the DJ booth.
“It was packed with hundreds of revellers watching on. All the tables had been booked and were completely full.
“Strangers were wandering past and Dele and Maria didn’t blink an eye.
“They were in a group together and it was very cosy. They looked so cute and could have been honeymooners.”
Dele and Maria’s public smooch came last Sunday — a day after Tottenham’s 3-1 Premier League defeat at Leeds United.
It was very cosy. Dele and Maria looked so cute and could have been honeymooners.
Maria’s Spanish dad’s Man City side had also suffered a defeat a day earlier against Chelsea — but went on to be declared this season’s Premier League champions.
A friend told The Sun: “Dele looked smitten and finally over being dumped by his long-term lover Ruby Mae.
“Dele and Maria are young, free and single. Who knows where it will go from here?”
Maria has become something of a style icon thanks to her impressive online following

Maria has told pals about the rooftop encounter with Dele but says they are “just friends”.
The Sun told how Ruby ended her relationship with Dele after growing tired of his behaviour — including spending hours playing online game Fortnite.
She has shared repeated public posts with her followers alluding to her joy at finally being free from the footballer.
Dele has struggled for form this season — prompting speculation that he could be sold to a rival team, possibly Manchester City.
Meanwhile student Maria, who lives in London, has won an army of online fans. She is a Spanish style icon with snaps of her jetset lifestyle shared on social media.
She is the eldest of Pep’s three children with businesswoman Cristina Serra.
The couple met in a shop and dated for 20 years before marrying in 2014 in Matadepera — after their children were born.

Maria is close to her brother Marius, 18, and sister Valentina, 13, and the family have repeatedly posed together publicly at Pep’s end-of-season trophy celebrations.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has proudly beamed in front of cameras with his arm around Maria.
Last night, a spokesman for Dele declined to comment.
