Morata rejects Pochettino claims over Tottenham transfer

Morata rejects Pochettino claims over Tottenham transfer

Alvaro Morata has told Sky Sports that Mauricio Pochettino told him that he would partner Harry Kane up front if he joined Tottenham Hotspur, but says a move to North London was never a likely scenario.

"No, it is not true; I did talk to him".

"He [Morata] said to me: 'Why do you want me if you have Harry Kane?' You know, if you go to try to sign a striker, they will say: 'Eh gaffer, you want me for what?"

The Tottenham boss revealed he was interested in bringing the Spain worldwide to the Premier League before he eventually joined Chelsea in the summer for £70million.

'For sure I would like to play with Kane, he's a big player, one of the best strikers in the world, but in this moment when I spoke with him [Pochettino] there was no chance to leave Real Madrid'.




"He is a very good player and a good man too". Alli scored 10 league goals in 33 games in his breakthrough season at the club and followed that up with 18 in 37 appearances last season.

The English striker is considered one of the most valuable players in Tottenham's history, as he was the top scorer of the Premier League in the previous two editions.

Alvaro Morata confirms a previous conversation with Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino.

However, the Chelsea Striker has rejected Pochettino's comments by stating he would in fact enjoy playing alongside the England global.

"Always when we are together in the Spanish team, we talk about football and life". "But it's always nice to prove people wrong".
