Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow insists the club were never willing sell Steven Gerrard or Fernando Torres this summer.
Reports had suggested the club were looking to part with Gerrard and Torres in a bid to ease their financial problems.
But during a question and answer session with supporters on the club’s official website, Purslow maintained the idea of selling their prized assets was never contemplated by the Reds.
He said: “Anybody who knows me, who knows (manager) Roy (Hodgson) or who knows the club will know that nothing could be further from the truth.
“Any conversations that were had were stressing the absolute vital importance of those players – and others – to our future and to our plans and why they remain so central to what we’re doing.
“Let’s be honest, if you’d believed half of what you read in May about who would be leaving and who wouldn’t... then most of that didn’t come to fruition.
“I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted that it didn’t and that those fantastic players still grace our team today.”
