I hadn't seen that. In which case, then probably the agent looking to advertise his availability to other potential suitors. I would be astounded if that is, or ever was, us. No player is going to respond to interest from a club that has just sold a left back to a Champions League team for a world record fee by deriding their pedigree to the media. If his agent's response to genuine interest was this kind of bridge burning drivel, he needs to sack his agent.
Agree, agent shenanigans (went to the same school of Agent Feckery as Cucu's). But he's burnt his bridges coming here before the foundations were even placed.
Might or might not have been on our radar. But with the current fresh bruising over Cucu's agent, I doubt we'll get a player with a knobbish agent like this immediately.
