Atletico Madrid have insisted that Sergio Aguero is not for sale after being linked with a switch to Juventus.
The Italian media has gone into overdrive with stories that Aguero will be signed by the Turin giants after his representatives held talks with the Italians yesterday.
"We are not in negotiations with anyone for Aguero," stated Atletico official Miguel Angel Gil. "Sergio Aguero is not for sale."
A report in the Mundo Deportivo newspaper also claims that Juventus made no enquiries about the forward yesterday.
It is possible that the topic of discussion was actually Momo Sissoko, a player who is represented by the same agency as Aguero.
The Mali midfielder is expected to leave the Turin giants at the end of the season after a problematic past campaign.
Juventus are hoping to sign a couple of high profile players this summer in an effort to revive their fortunes.
Juve, who may fail to qualify for Europe, will reportedly replace Gigi Del Neri with Siena boss Antonio Conte at the end of this season.
