Paulo Tonietto was clearly irritated by rumours that he had met Barca director Raul Sanllehi about a switch for the Brazil international defender to Camp Nou this summer.
"It is not true," he told RAC 1 radio station.
"I do not know if Raul is short, tall, fair, blond, brown-haired... I just do not know him. I do not know who Raul is, so it is just not true."
