Major League Soccer have moved to quash reports that Chivas USA were set to be sold and relocated.

It had emerged that Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim was interested in the purchase of the Goats with the intent of moving from Carson, California's The Home Depot Center but a MLS statement has since rubbished those claims.

"Major League Soccer is aware of recent media speculation concerning Chivas USA," read a statement from the league issued late last week.

"Such speculation is completely unfounded and untrue. MLS is fully supportive of the current owners of Chivas USA and has never considered taking over the club or moving it."
