Former Madeleine McCann suspect Robert Murat says reports that he is to be re-interviewed by police over her disappearance in 2007 are "fantasy land".

Ex-pat property developer Murat spoke out after it was reported in Portuguese media the former 'arguido' -- or suspect -- in the case is wanted for questioning by Scotland Yard.

"At the moment, the situation is I haven't been informed about anything. I really can't say anything about it," he told media in the Algarve. "All I know is I haven't had anything official. No comment. It's all just fantasy land."

Murat was previously in the frame over Madeleine's disappearance but was never arrested or charged.

Portuguese police, however, deemed him an arguido for months after the three-year-old vanished nearly eight years ago.

Responding to the latest report in the Jornal de Noticias, Murat's lawyer Francisco Pagarete said: "My client has not received anything from the authorities."

Scotland Yard would not comment on whether Murat faced questioning by officers investigating Madeleine's disappearance.

A spokesman said: "We refuse to give a running commentary."
