Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Tottenham boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at Stamford Bridge have said that the club will reject any advances for the Chelsea defender.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Tottenham.'
