Reports in Spain suggested that Joan Laporta is looking to bring the Portuguese tactician to the Nou Camp after growing frustrated with Luis Enrique, who was only appointed last summer.
Mourinho has previously been a staff member at Barcelona, working as an assistant to both Sir Bobby Robson and Louis Van Gaal between 1996 and 2000.
However, more recently he spent three years in charge of arch rivals Real Madrid.
Barcelona have also been linked with a move to sign Real star Cristiano Ronaldo, but Cruyff spoke out about the recent speculation swirling around the club.
“I don’t think there’s much to [the rumours], they’re just idle comments,” he said.
“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 Mourinho and Ronaldo.”
