A story in Spanish newspaper Sport suggested the 22-year-old had set his sights on joining Barca but that a move would not be financially realistic for the European champions.
According to the report, Barcelona had been put off by Pogba’s salary demands of €12 million (£9.3m) a season but Raiola has poured cold water on the claims.
“Sport Spain article is nonsense,” Raiola tweeted. “They only have one reader [and] it’s Pinocchio.”
Pogba has scored five goals and added a further five assists in 23 Serie A appearances this season.
