WBC world champion Fury has an obligatory third bout with longtime rival Deontay Wilder but that could be sidestepped for a showdown with Joshua, who has a mandatory challenger in Kubrat Pulev.
But The Athletic have revealed Fury's MTK Global have signed the non-disclosure agreement, as have Matchroom Boxing and Queensberry Promotions.
Tyson Fury's advisor, MTK Global, tells The Athletic it signed an NDA with a Middle Eastern country regarding possibility of a Tyson Fury-Anthony Joshua fight. NDA also signed by officials from Matchroom and Queensberry, per sources. Latest on Fury-Joshuahttps://t.co/QvB3jZsHNu

'AJ; is represented by Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing while the 'Gypsy King' is represented by Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions.
The fight will reportedly be negotiated between MTK Global and Matchroom Boxing due to the poor relationship between Hearn and Warren at the moment.
In addition, the fight is unlikely to happen in the United Kingdom due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
WBC champion Fury has discussed his future opponents in recent days and was asked about Joshua.
However, Fury offered a shock answer and stated Wilder is a bigger threat to his title than Joshua.

"One-hundred percent, Joshua's not dangerous, at all. He's like a big cuddly baby," Fury told ESPN.
"Why would I be a believer when he got knocked spark out by Andy Ruiz? A last-minute replacement opponent ... who turned up 300 pounds or whatever it is, he didn't train, and Anthony Joshua couldn't do any good with him in the rematch,'' Fury went on to state.
"He doesn't have anything, he couldn't hold a candle to 'The Gypsy King.'
"There's only one heavyweight out there, there's only one undefeated world champion. They've all fallen by the wayside, the fellow that hasn't gotten beat, has knocked them out! I'm the only one! Me -- 'The Gypsy King,' unbeatable, the untouchable, unbreakable champion."

Fury also revealed that he's going back on his claims of only having two fights left in him - explaining he will fight until he's 40.
"I'm going to fight on till I'm 40 years old," Fury said. "I've been thinking about it, and there isn't much else to do anyways. So yeah, I may as well keep fighting.
"I don't see anyone out there that can challenge me. I just flattened the best one out there. The toughest opponent out there is Deontay Wilder, and we all saw what happened to him the last time out."
