Barcelona basketball board member Joan Balde i Marsal has denied any negotiations with Pau Gasol, during Nick Calathes presentation on Friday.

Several reports suggested that Gasol was in advanced talks with Barcelona last week, but the team denied the speculation today.

Gasol is recovering from a foot injury and is expected to play at least one more season, before retiring, as he wants to be available for the Olympic Games next summer.
