The Real Madrid goalkeeper insists the speculation is merely media talk, and declared he was solely focused on his future at the Bernabeu.
"It is not true," said the Spanish international. "I know what people are saying, but what I say is what matters and I haven't spoken to anyone.
"All this has caused me a problem and it's not nice to live with it."
Casillas had been particularly annoyed by people comparing his situation with that of Luis Figo when the Portuguese star left Barca for Real, but flatly denied he would be making the reverse journey.
"I understand that people don't believe me because of what happened with Luis.
"All this leaves me in a bad spot but I have to focus on the league and not that.
"I have a contract until 2006 and I'm very happy at Real Madrid."
