Theresa May has dismissed as "Brussels gossip" an account of a dinner with EC President Jean-Claude Juncker, published in a German newspaper.
Axar.az reports citing to BBC the pair reportedly clashed over Mrs May's desire to make Brexit "a success" and whether the issue of protecting the rights of expat UK and EU nationals could be agreed as early as June.
The Frankfurter Allgemeine claims Mr Juncker said: "I leave... 10 times more sceptical than I was before."
But Mrs May said it was "constructive".
And she told the BBC's Ben Wright: "I have to say from what I've seen of this account I think's its Brussels gossip."
Speaking during an election campaign event in Lancashire, she added: "Just look at what the European Commission themselves said immediately after the dinner took place, which was that the talks had been constructive."
