Fenway Sports Group, the owners of Liverpool, have categorically dismissed reports claiming that the club is up for sale.
A report published in the New York Post on Friday claimed Fenway Sports Group chief John W. Henry is ‘quietly’ entertaining informal takeover offers in the region of approximately $2bn (£1.53bn).
However, a Liverpool spokesperson on Friday completely dismissed the report, insisting the club is not for sale and describing speculation suggesting otherwise as “unfounded”.
“As loathed as we are to give a story of this nature a meaningful response, on behalf of the club’s ownership I can completely dismiss this unfounded speculation,” a spokesperson said.
“To repeat once again, the club is not for sale, including any ‘quiet process’ or anything of that nature.”
