American tycoon Robert Kraft has admitted investing in Liverpool is a possibility.
Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry travelled to the United States last week as a guest of the Kraft family, who own the New England Patriots of the NFL.
Parry's visit was to observe the match-day operation of the Gillette stadium, although the Kraft family have also been linked with buying a stake in Liverpool.
"All I can say about Liverpool is it's a great brand and it's something our family respects a lot," Kraft told BBC Radio Five Live. "We're happy to have them come visit us.
"We love the sport of soccer and we're always interested in opportunities and growing, so you never know what can happen."
