Wolfsburg have not been in contact with Michael Ballack about a possible move from Bayer Leverkusen.
The 34-year-old midfielder has become increasingly marginalised at Leverkusen and is struggling to hold down a place in the team.
So far this campaign, the former Germany captain has only started one game and it is believed he may be allowed to leave.
Wolfsburg have made 11 signings this summer and it was thought they would offer the former Chelsea and Bayern Munich star a deal.
But Ballack's agent Dr Michael Becker told Wolfsburger Allegemeine Zeitung: "Nobody from Wolfsburg has made contact with me, nor have they had contact with Michael."
And there are signs that Leverkusen would be prepared to let the iconic figure go to get regular games.
Rudi Voller, Leverkusen's director of sport, told television channel Sport1: "If he were to come to us, of course we would discuss things and find a satisfactory resolution."
