Hi Aurélien,

AFAIK, no.
There is always the possibility that the Spanish goverment asked about the possibility of purchasing some Tigers, but if that happened it was probaly an unofficial question, and in no way would I call it a "negotiation". Anyway, I consider that possibility fairly remote. For example, the initial list of wanted material presented by Spain to the Germans as a base for negotiations of the Bär Plan (15 April 1943) asked for 250 tanks with 45-50mm gun and 100 tanks with 75mm guns, which clearly excludes the Tiger.
