Alli or Pogba: Andy Gray issues brutal response when asked who he would buy
By Amir Mir
Andy Gray issued a brutal response when asked who he would buy from Tottenham ace Dele Alli and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
The former Scotland striker stated that it is “not a question” with the TV pundit clearly leaning towards the Spurs man.
England international Alli moved to White Hart Lane in 2015 from League One outfit MK Dons for a fee of £5million.
By contrast, United man Pogba returned to Old Trafford in the summer when the Manchester club paid a world record fee of £90million for his services to Juventus.
The duo have had distinctly different seasons during this campaign and Gray delivered this verdict on the duo.

“There isn’t a number (fee) on (Dele Alli),” Gray told beinSPORT as posted by a Football YouTube account.
“It’s not a question because you know what I am going to say,” Gray responded when asked, would he pay £90million for Pogbba or £5million for Alli.
“If you said to anybody would you pay £90 odd million for Paul Pogba or £5million for Dele Alli – you would have had a different answer three years ago.”
Former League One player Alli has been in remarkable form during this campaign, scoring 16 goals in 30 Premier League matches.
Furthermore, he has found the back of the net on a total of 19 occasions this term added with his ten assists.
By contrast, Pogba has scored seven goals in all competitions for United, with only four strikes in 26 league matches.
Jose Mourinho’s side currently sit outside of the top four and are aiming to secure a Champions League place.
On the other hand, Spurs are hoping to clinch an unlikely Premier League crown as they are currently nine points behind leaders Chelsea in the table.
