Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have dismissed “unfounded speculation” that the club is for sale.
American newspaper New York Post reported that principal owner John W Henry was privately inviting offers and would be willing to sell the Premier League club for a bid in excess of £1.53billion.
A Liverpool spokesperson said: “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.”
That was in response to a report in the Daily Mail which claimed that Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nehayan failed in a £2bn attempt to take over the club at the end of 2017.
