Adrian Roucco, the agent of West Ham forward Carlos Tevez, has dismissed speculation linking the Argentinian with a move to European champions Barcelona.
Reports have claimed Barca had contacted West Ham to ask about taking the Argentina international as cover for injured striker Eidur Gudjohnsen who picked up an ankle injury in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
However, Roucco denied there was any approach.
“These kind of things are always managed through formal offers,” he told www.ole.com.ar.
“If there is anything, the player and I have to be informed. If I have not been told anything. It means that there’s nothing official.
“All the rest is speculation, as has been going on for several months.’
“Up to now, there has been no official offer,” said Roucco. “It is all speculation. If it wasn’t, this information would be more important. Tevez stays at West Ham.”
