Froome has been widely tipped to lead Team Sky's challenge in the showpiece event after finishing as runner-up to Wiggins last year.
Wiggins hinted yesterday that he aims to defend his crown and claim a historic double alongside the Giro d'Italia.
In response to the statement from his teammate Froome has remained adamant that he has Team Sky's full backing to aim for a maiden Tour de France title.
He told BBC Sport: "I have been reassured by the management at Team Sky that I have their full backing.
"At no time has the leadership of the Tour team been in question."
Froome continued his strong season with victory in the six-day Tour de Romandie earlier this week.
