Bayern Munich have played down reports they have met with Manchester City to discuss a deal for Brazilian defender Lucio.
It had been suggested City dispatched a contingent to Germany recently to thrash out a deal for Lucio after missing out on John Terry.
However, Bayern say they have not met with any club regarding the 31-year-old former Bayer Leverkusen stopper.
Bayern spokesman Markus Horwick claims no clubs have been in touch regarding Lucio, who is currently away on holiday.
"Bayern have not met with anyone regarding Lucio, there is also no enquiry or phone call concerning a transfer bid," he told Deutsche Presseagentur.
"Lucio is actually on holiday and we hope he has a good time there before returning to pre-season training with us."
