BeIN Sports pundit Andy Gray has revealed that Manchester United have only one thing that can attract Mauricio Pochettino and makes him leave Tottenham for Old Trafford move.
Pochettino has joined Spurs in 2014 from Southampton and has since impressed as he made the London club title contenders.
“Unbelievable! It was the last action of the game. It’s why it’s so important to believe always”

The Red Devils have currently slipped downhill following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
United have sacked Jose Mourinho as club manager last month and the Argentine boss is believed to be their No 1 target to take over on a permanent basis.
However, former Aston Villa and Scotland striker Gray reveals that apart from ‘The name’, United have nothing else to tempt Pochettino to Old Trafford.
“Five years ago it would have been a done deal – the manager of Tottenham would have left Tottenham to go to Manchester United,” Gray said on beIN SPORTS. “Done deal, no question.”
“Right now, I don’t think it is a done deal. I think it’s a much more difficult question for Pochettino to wrestle with.”
“He’s got a great group of players there. Will he get the chance to build on that? We don’t know.”
“He’s got a beautiful new stadium on the horizon, we hope.”
“London, which we know foreign players and coaches love to be based in London, we know that.”
“So what would be the attraction of Manchester United? The name [but that’s it].”
