It has been a day of denials, with in-demand players Radamel Falcao and Christian Eriksen both rejecting reports linking them to the English Premier League.
Atletico Madrid striker Falcao has been strongly linked to Manchester United of late, but he says he “does not know” where the reports connecting him to United originate.
"In recent weeks I have tried to isolate myself and not think about the rumours about my future," Falcao told Colombian radio station RCN.
"I do not really know where that information has come from (joining Manchester United), that is part of the press.
"I'm focused only on Atletico Madrid. I do not let the market rumours affect my performance."
Danish international midfielder Eriksen meanwhile, has been connected to Liverpool.
The 21-year-old is considered one of the best up-and-coming players in Europe, and has scored 12 goals for Dutch champions-elect Ajax Amsterdam this season.
Liverpool are among a host of top clubs said to be keen on signing Eriksen, but Ajax refute the rumours that they have already reached a deal with the Reds.
"We will send out a press release when there is an agreement," Ajax press manager Eefje Schep told Danish TV2.
"Also if there is only a deal between Ajax and the club. So at this time there is no agreement between Ajax and Liverpool."
There may be no certainty yet regarding Eriksen’s eventual destination, although it is clear that he will be playing in bigger league next season, after rejecting the offer of better contract at Ajax.
"Christian has informed us that he won't be signing a new deal with us at this time," the Dutch club’s technical director, Marc Overmars, told Voetbal International.
"I think that he and his agent will want to see what options are available in the summer.”
