100% Not True! Mauricio Pochettino Denies Every Rumour Linked With This Argentine Sensation

Published

Manchester City v Leicester City - Premier League

Last week saw surprising transfer rumours link Sergio Aguero with a move to Tottenham and Arsenal along with clubs from abroad. The Manchester City forward appears to have temporarily fallen out of favour with Pep Guardiola, as he has not started for the club since the 2-0 shock defeat at White Hart Lane just before the international break. Aguero has already missed some high profile games including the Champions League heavy defeat against Barcelona. Unsurprisingly, it has led to transfer rumours linking the player with a move even though he remains one of the best players in his position.

Pep Guardiola has never shied away from selling even the best players. This history appears to have been a major factor in those transfer rumours, and Mauricio Pochettino has absolutely denied the idea of Spurs trying to sign Aguero. According to team talk, he said:

“Not true, 100 per cent not true.”

The 28-year-old came to City back in 2011 for a then British transfer record of £38 million. Even though he is about to hit 30, it may take a huge sum of money to prize him away from the Etihad stadium.

After having committed more than £600 million on the new 61,000 seater stadium, Spurs are unlikely to find the funds for a major signing like Aguero. Under the regime of Mauricio Pochettino, the club seems to have a clear idea of working within their means. Spurs have gone out and brought in players like Vincent Janssen, but a majority of the club’s purchases have been highly talented youngsters brought into the club for a fraction of their future transfer value.

The success of players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli have been the major driving force. The few signings made by the club in the summer were solely done to strengthen a team that had to play in four competitions including the Champions League. However, it is clear that Spurs are still heavily reliant on players like Kane. The England international being absent from the Tottenham line-up for the last eight games has started to hit the team, as they have gone four matches without a win.

Spurs have been linked with a number of strikers, but Pochettino ruling out the possibility of signing Aguero will help the club focus on the real targets. Kane will be the first choice without a shadow of a doubt, while a lot will hinge upon Janssen’s ability to find his scoring boots before the start of the January transfer window. If the Dutchman, who has been signed for £17 million, fails to open his account in the league by then, it is highly possible that Spurs will be after a new striker as a backup for Kane.
