Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff insists Jose Mourinho will not be leaving to join Barcelona in the near future.
The Chelsea manager is still a controversial figure at the Nou Camp but reports in Spain have started to gather pace that Joan Laporta will look to take him from Stamford Bridge should be be elected as Barcelona's new president.
Laporta was president of the Catalan outfit in one of their most successful eras from 2003 to 2010 and reportedly met with Jorge Mendes last week to discuss potential moves for Mourinho and even Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Sport is a game which holds many possibilities, but in this case they are unlikely to be feasible."
However, the iconic Dutchman, Cruyff, has insisted that talk of a move to bring the Special One back to La Liga is nothing but hot air from a chancer.
"I don't think there's much to them, they're just idle comments," Cruyff told reporters.

"When you talk about something you know nothing about, you end up kicking up a storm for no reason.
"Sport is a game which holds many possibilities, but in this case they are unlikely to be feasible. I don't imagine that Laporta would bring in Mou and Cristiano."
Both Ronaldo and Mourinho are not exactly fan favourites with the Blaugrana. Ronaldo is an iconic player for their fiercest rivals Real Madrid and Mourinho is the nemesis of Barcelona icon Pep Guardiola.
But Mourinho's history with Barcelona dates back further than his three-year spell as manager of Los Blancos. A bitter rivalry has been carved out over the last decade since he was at the club as a mere translator.
He is also only 18 months into a long-term contract at Chelsea and is looking set for a long spell of dominance with the Blues.
