EXCLUSIVE Dele Alli, 25, and Pep Guardiola’s daughter Maria, 20, leave Starbucks
Dele Alli’s rumored relationship with Pep Guardiola’s daughter appears to be growing strong after they were spotted on a lunch and coffee date in exclusive Mayfair.
The Spurs midfielder, 25, was seen in May kissing Maria, 20, at a London rooftop bar and they appear to be still close five months later.
The Manchester City coach’s daughter led the way as she and Dele carried takeaway coffee to a Starbucks in central London after leaving the nearby Novikov Restaurant and Bar on Berkeley Street.
The luxurious West End location is a popular hot spot with the celebrities and Premier League footballers, with the likes of Justin Bieber, Anthony Joshua, Drake and Novak Djokovic, all regulars.
Afterwards, Dele, whose career at Spurs was reportedly at stake, got into a waiting car with Maria and was swept away, a witness said.
Their apparently budding relationship came about months after Dele was “devastated” in February by his divorce from his five-year-old model girlfriend, Ruby Mae. He was rumored to be looking for love on the celebrity dating app Raya.
MailOnline has reached out to Dele’s representatives for comment.

It was claimed that Dele and Maria met in April and that they “didn’t care who saw them” as they kissed in front of a DJ booth in the Cloud 9 bar.
One ‘spectator’ told The Sun: ‘Dele and Maria seemed to have no worries in the world. They didn’t care who saw them as they strolled in front of the DJ booth.
“It was packed with hundreds of revelers watching. All tables were reserved and completely full. Strangers walked by and Dele and Maria didn’t blink.’
They added that the duo looked “so cute” and could have passed for “honeymooners.”

While another source said: “Dele looked smitten and finally over being dumped by his long-time lover Ruby Mae. Dele and Maria are young, free and single. Who knows where it goes from here?’
However, Maria is said to have told friends that she is “just friends” with Dele, despite their reported kiss.
Pep Guardiola’s daughter Maria lives in London, where she studies, and has a huge following on Instagram.
Guardiola, whose Man City team just won the Premier League, has three children – Maria, 20, Marius, 18, and Valentina, 13, with wife Cristina Serra, who married in 2014.
In March, it was alleged that Dele was looking for love on celebrity dating app, Raya, after being “dumped” by his model girlfriend Ruby.
The Tottenham and England star is said to have been ‘stripped’ after his girlfriend of five, 25, decided to end things, prompting him to join the exclusive platform used by the likes of Cara Delevingne and Ben Affleck.
Speaking of his love life, a friend told The Sun: “Dele is still upset about the breakup with Ruby, but knows he needs to look to the future.
“His pride was dented, but now he’s open about getting into a relationship with the right person.”
Breaking Up: In February, Dele and his model girlfriend broke up after the couple continued to get into blazing feuds, insiders claimed (pictured in happier times)
In February, Dele and his model girlfriend broke up after the couple continued to argue, insiders claimed.
Ruby – who modeled for top brands Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana – was reportedly “outraged” at his behavior and allegedly “packed her things” and left their £2million mansion.
A source told the publication: “Their relationship has been turbulent, but it feels very much like the end now.”
Dele and Ruby had been together since early 2016. She was by his side that summer at the 2018 European Championship and World Cup in Russia before briefly splitting up in early 2019.
They were back together in the summer of that year, with the football ace reportedly flying her to Madrid for the Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool in early June.
Dele and Ruby’s breakup came less than a year after the couple were robbed with a knife by thieves who broke into their home in Barnet, north London, in the early hours of the morning.
In May 2020, Dele and Ruby were reportedly playing pool together when he was punched in the face by knife-wielding thugs.
The couple were isolated with Dele’s brother Harry Hickford, his partner and a close friend when the robbers broke in and demanded the footballer hand over his valuables.
With police officers said thousands of jewelry and watches were stolen during the raid.
The Telegraph also reported that the footballer has a nighttime security guard, who was apparently “unaware” of the two intruders.
