Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu has been in contact with Antoine Griezmann's agent amid reports the Atletico Madrid striker is set to join the Spanish champions.
The Frenchman has a buyout clause of £87m (100m euros) in his contract and the Spanish media claim Barcelona are ready to pay it.
It has also been reported that Atletico could offer the 27-year-old a new deal, but Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague says the club are becoming resigned to losing him.
Bartomeu told radio station RAC1: "We are analysing the season and we will see what we will do with ins and outs.
"I have bumped into him [Griezmann] occasionally in the Balearic Islands. I have not spoken to him this year but I did speak to his agent in October.
"With [Atletico Madrid President Enrique] Cerezo I have spoken about a lot of things, but not about this."
