Werder deny Barca agreement over Ozil

Werder Bremen director of sport Klaus Allofs insists reports of an agreement with Barcelona over Mesut Ozil are "nonsense".

Agent: Mascherano wants Barca move

Respected Spanish paper El Pais claimed on Tuesday that Barca had reached a tentative agreement with Werder to sign Ozil, 21, for €10 million, with the Germany international said to have prioritised a move to Camp Nou.

Allofs, though, claimed the rumours of an agreement with Barca were "nonsense" and said: "There is no agreement with Barca."

Werder's media director, Tino Polster, added: "There are no talks with and no offer from FC Barcelona."

When the player himself was asked about the move on Tuesday morning following training, he told Bild: "I know nothing. I have spoken to no one."

Despite the denials, Allofs has suggested that a deal to sell the player could progress in the near future.

Allofs told the Kreiszeitung Syke newspaper: "It is possible that there is now a bit of movement in the issue, but I am not running backwards and forwards to the fax machine or getting sweaty palms when I check my emails to see if maybe an offer has arrived."

Several top clubs in Europe, including Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid, are said to be interested in Ozil and Sir Alex Ferguson refused to rule out a bid at the weekend, saying "I don't know" when asked if he was hopeful of signing the player.
