Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for Barcelona star Sergio Busquets.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Juventus boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at the Camp Nou have said that the club will reject any advances for the defensive midfielder.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Juventus.'
