Liverpool's ownership group, Fenway Sports Group (FSG), have released a statement staying they are not interested in selling the club, following a report from the Daily Mail that revealed they had been involved in talks for a enormous buyout deal.
FSG have invested significantly in the club since their £300m purchase in October 2010 with the £115m redevelopment of Anfield's Main Stand, a £50m commitment to build a new training ground, securing manager Jurgen Klopp on a six-year contract in 2016 and this summer alone spending £170m on transfers. They deny the claim that a £2bn valuation was "agreed" with Sheikh Khaled, who is understood to have been working in tandem with a minority-stake Chinese partner.

Contacté par Le Parisien , Jean-Pierre Le Berrigo assurait vendredi qu'"il n'y a rien contre les lois du travail. L'employeur peut conclure un accord d'entreprise avec ses salariés et peut le faire par référendum.
A Liverpool spokesman told the Mail that the deal, which would have been the highest buyout of a football club, "never reached the stage where major shareholders John W Henry or Michael Gordon met the Abu Dhabi investors".
A Liverpool club spokesperson said: "FSG have been clear and consistent in their stance that the club is not for sale".
However, Liverpool's owners have said they would "under the right terms and conditions consider taking on a minority investor, if such a partnership was to further our commercial interests in specific market places, in line with the continued development and growth of the club".
