Liverpool declare Alonso and Mascherano not for sale

The speculation of Liverpool players Alonso and Mascherano over the past few weeks has become cause for concern amongst fans. Most of it ridiculous, some bordering on the fantastical. The club have therefore found it necessary to release the following statement via the official web site:

“Despite repeated media speculation on the futures of Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano, Liverpool has received no official approach or offer from any club regarding the players.

"Neither is for sale and furthermore Liverpool has no interest in the long list of Spanish based players being linked with a move to Anfield as part of any deal."

This short and to the point declaration from the club will no doubt have no effect on the tabloids who will probably continue to run transfer stories on the duo for the rest of the summer.
