Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre believes Luis Suarez's latest comments about a possible summer move may have been "lost in translation".
Suarez's future at Anfield has made headlines after it was reported he would be willing to talk with other clubs following an interview in his native Uruguay.
Ayre has, however, played down any notion the 26-year-old striker may be about to leave the Reds after signing a four-year deal last August.
"You can read into the comments - it was given in his native language so I think maybe it was a bit lost in translation," Ayre told BBC Radio Five Live.
"We've been consistent with Luis. Last summer he signed a new four-year contract and we have no desire to sell Luis. He is a fantastic player and a great contributor to our team. We've been very honest with him and he's been very honest with us. There is always going to be instances, particularly leading up to the summer (transfer) window, when people are quoted or asked these questions."
