Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for VfL Wolfsburg star Luiz Gustavo.
'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 the Volkswagen Arena have said that the club will reject any advances for the Brazilian midfielder.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Tottenham.'
