Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for Manchester United star Phil Jones.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Atletico Madrid boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at Old Trafford have said that the club will reject any advances for the English centre back.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Atletico Madrid.'
