Transfer rumours can be a bit of fun.

January's a long way off, but plenty of fans are already getting excited about some of the rumours doing the rounds, linking players with their clubs.

It has to be said, though, there's always some speculation being put about which is nothing short of ridiculous.

Remember when Arsenal were going to sign Jonny Evans, or Barcelona were desperate to nab Glen Johnson? Exactly.

Luckily, we're not the only ones who find these rumours funny. Mauricio Pochettino does, too.

The Tottenham manager must be getting used to being linked with every Argentinian player ever, with the possible exceptions of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi.

The latest name pushed in his direction, however, was Sergio Aguero. And yes, he found it rather amusing.

Cue this reaction, brought to our attention by 101GreatGoals.

OK, so it wasn't that funny Mauricio. As he says in the video above, Aguero to Spurs is "100% not true", just in case there was any doubt.

Pep drops Kun 

On the other hand, it's easy to see why Aguero is being linked with a move away from Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola left the striker out of the starting line-up for last week's game against Barcelona, which might go some way towards explaining why they lost 4-0.

As Joe Hart, Yaya Toure, and Samir Nasri will testify, Guardiola isn't afraid to give players the chop, no matter how big a star they might be.

Aguero is joint-third top scorer in the Premier League this season, so things aren't exactly a disaster just yet, but he has developed a bit of an unfortunate penchant for missing penalties.

Put all that together with the fact that Spurs haven't scored from open play in over 270 minutes of football, and maybe you can see where the rumour has come from - not really, but maybe.

For now, Spurs fans are probably better off waiting for Harry Kane to come back, or perhaps pigs flying, before they hold their breath for Aguero to arrive.

Our favourite thing about this is definitely Pochettino's hysterical reaction, though, as it's made the whole rumour worthwhile.

Who should Spurs sign up front? Will Sergio Aguero leave Manchester City? Have your say in the comments.
