Real Madrid insist they have not received any approach for Julio Baptista, amid reports he is interesting both Manchester City and Tottenham.

Baptista, who spent a season on loan at Arsenal last year, has consistently been linked with a move away from the Spanish champions, with Villarreal and AC Milan also rumoured to be considering bids.

However, a Real spokesman insists the club have not received any formal offers for the Brazilian forward.

"We do not comment about the rumours in the press," a Real spokesman told Sky Sports.

Meanwhile the 26-year-old's agents, Juan Figger and Herminio Menendez, have denied they have been in contact with Spurs.

"We have not spoken with Juande and Spurs about this subject," the pair said in a statement.

"The decision corresponds to Real Madrid and we do not know any other news in the last week."
