MADRID (Reuters) - A spokeswoman for Spain's Abertis ABE.MC said on Wednesday that the company has not received an offer for its stake in Cellnex CLNX.MC following a report that American Towers AMT.N may be interested.

Bloomberg reported on Tuesday that American Towers is exploring a bid for the Spanish telecommunications tower operator to expand in Europe, though the offer depends on a successful merger of Abertis and Italy's Atlantia ATL.MI.

Cellnex said its management has had no contact with American Towers.

At 0745 GMT, Cellnex was up 6.53 percent, leading gains on the Ibex .IBEX, down 0.09 percent.
