Liverpool have vehemently denied that the club is up for sale after it was reported that owner John Henry is entertaining offers for the Premier League outfit.
Multiple sources told the New York Post that Henry’s Fenway Sports Group (FSG) is seeking bids of more than $2bn (€1.76bn), having bought Liverpool for $477m in 2010.
But a Liverpool spokesperson said: “As loath 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.
“To repeat once again, the club is not for sale, including any ‘quiet process’ or anything of that nature.”
According to the story, the Boston Red Sox, who are also owned by FSG, lost money this year despite winning the World Series. But it is unclear if this is related to an apparent desire to sell Liverpool.
