Tottenham Hotspur (England) manager Mauricio Pochettino says his "superstar" striker Harry Kane is "priceless" and "out of the market", reported the BBC.

Shortly after Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid, Spurs boss Pochettino claimed he had previously tried to sign the Spain worldwide.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata rejects claims made by Mauricio Pochettino that he rejected the chance to join Tottenham Hotspur in the past due to Harry Kane.

"I've always said that when people doubt me I want to prove them wrong whether it's at a young age or now, that's just my mindset, something in me since a young age".

Speaking to Sky Sports, Morata said when asked about Pochettino's comments: "No it's not true".

Kane's form at club and worldwide level over the last three years has been vast, establishing the Spurs striker as one of the best players in the world.


Morata has begun life at Stamford Bridge very well and feels he has adapted to the Premier League and the task of replacing Diego Costa.

"It's inevitable they will come calling or come asking, because he's that good a player and wouldn't look out of place in either of those teams". "I'm Diego's friend and when I came here I knew that is was a big responsibility to replace him, but I've tried to do well", Morata added. "We talk about everything and I always say thanks to Diego".

The Spanish hit-man has 12 goals in 25 games in his first season for Chelsea. His job is to score goals and it's his mentality every day. I had many chances in the Premier League and Champions League and I need to improve.

"Yes, I think [Shearer] will know better than me because he's English and the mentality, he will know better about the English mentality".

"Always I can improve something".
