Chelsea star dismisses baseless claims of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino


As we've pointed out a couple of times at Sport Witness, Marca haven't yet gone huge on Harry Kane to Real Madrid.

Pochettinho revealed in August that the striker's decision to not make a switch to Spurs was to avoid a competition with Kane.

Sure, over the past week they've given his record breaking a double page spread, had a journalist say he could suit Madrid, and given Kane a front page after fans picked him out as the favourite target... but he's certainly not had the full "Marca" treatment. He also went on to confirm that Pochettino wanted to play him alongside the England global to lead his side's attack.

Alvaro Morata has confirmed that he held talks with Mauricio Pochettino over a move from Real Madrid, but has denied suggestions that he rejected the chance to join Tottenham Hotspur because of Harry Kane.

After Chelsea signed Morata in the summer, Pochettino came out of his shell talking about a conversation he had with the striker.

Morata has scored 10 goals in 17 Premier League appearances for Chelsea, while also finding the net once in the Champions League and once in the EFL Cup. The frontman still believes there is still more room for him to improve his game as he claims that he is still far away from being a finished product.

Speaking during a recent interview, Buffon said, "Harry is now one of the best strikers in Europe - there is no question about that".

"A lot of the build-up was about Alan Shearer's record and if I could break it but I was calm, I was confident and when you have players like Christian Eriksen putting in crosses like that (for the first goal) as a striker, it's a dream", Kane told SpursTV after Tuesday's 5-2 win over Southampton.

"Always I can improve something". I have always had the attitude that I don't fear the best - I respect them - and I always want to play against them.
