Malaga's director general Vicente Casado says the owners of Paris Saint-Germain have not made a bid to buy the struggling club.
The La Liga outfit were plunged into financial trouble at the start of this season when Qatari owner Abdullah ben Nasser Al-Thani withdrew his funding for the club.
Malaga have since been banned from Uefa competitions for four years due to outstanding payments owed to players, employees and the tax man.
In recent weeks the Spanish press have been reporting that Qatar Sports Investments (QSI), owned by Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Crown Prince of Qatar, were ready to buy out his cousin and takeover at La Rosaleda.
Malaga have now come out to deny the reports, with Casado insisting Los Boquerones officials are optimistic about the future of the club.
"I categorically deny that there has been an offer to buy the club," Casado told the press.
