Morata rejects Pochettino claims over Tottenham transfer

Paper Round Real offer Bale in swap deal for Kane

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has rubbished claims made by Mauricio Pochettino suggesting he rejected a move to Tottenham because of Harry Kane.

The Spain worldwide completed a move from Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge in the summer and has settled in quickly to life at the reigning Premier League champions.

Morata is enjoying a fine debut season at Stamford Bridge, with 10 goals from 17 league outings, although his achievements pale in comparison to those of Kane, who has 18 in 19 to take his 2017 tally to 39 - a Premier League record for a calendar year. That was two years ago or more.

"Morata talked about myself, in the media he said "Mauricio called me".

The Spurs boss claimed Harry Kane was the reason Morata decided against joining the Wembley outfit.

But far from saying he didn't want to play second-fiddle to Kane, at Spurs, Morata said a deal wasn't possible with the north London side, before moving to the Blues from Real Madrid for £70m.

"No it's not true", Morata said.

"Yes Pochettino did tell me that we could've played together but at that moment in time, there were no possibilities of me leaving Real Madrid.".

He continued: 'He is a very good player and a good man too. We talk about everything and I always say thanks to Diego'. "But I think I can do better with the head and the feet", Morata said.

Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama could make his first English Premier League appearance for Tottenham Hotspurs since August next Tuesday.

"Always I can improve something".
