BERLIN (Reuters) – Ride hailing company Uber <UBER.N> denied a German magazine report on Thursday that it was considering hiring Wirecard <WDIG.DE> as its main payments partner to replace Dutch platform Adyen <ADYEN.AS>.

“We are not in conversations with Wirecard for card acquiring,” an Uber spokeswoman said in an email to Reuters when asked whether the report, in Manager Magazine, was accurate.
