Sell Luiz Suarez To Chelsea Not Arsenal – Gary Neville Advises Liverpool

Gary Neville

Gary Neville has advised Liverpool to sell Luis Suarez to Chelsea instead of Arsenal.

The Manchester United legend thinks that the Anfield giants should sell their coveted striker to the Blues rather than to Arsenal, since he believes it will only strengthen a team which is almost guaranteed to finish above the Reds, while the Gunners are thought to be one of Liverpool’s direct rivals for one of the Champions League spots.

Arsenal are reported to be going back to Liverpool with an improved offer for the Uruguayan which will be close to the £50 million that Liverpool value the striker at. Meanwhile Arsenal’s latest transfer target Luiz Gustavo, is said to be close to finalising his move to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, who along with Napoli are rivalling the Gunners for the Brazilian’s signature.

Arséne Wenger has revealed that Arsenal will be ‘active in the transfer market’ till it ends and that 18 days are more than enough to bring in new players. He also spoke about his reasons for letting Gervinho go to Roma, after a tough couple of seasons at the Emirates, and said, “I made that decision [to sell Gervinho] because he looked to play with a lack of confidence, especially at the Emirates.”

“He is a very creative player, an instinctive dribbler and for that you need a lot of confidence to be completely efficient. I felt that in the last six months it was very difficult for him to express his talent in a confident way.

“Then you sit there and think, ‘Do I bring him back or does he need a new challenge to get that confidence back?’ and I did not want to stop him from getting a new chance,” he continued, in an interview with Arsenal Player.

The Frenchman also revealed the team news, before the season opener against Aston Villa on Saturday. Read more about it here.

  1. I have always respected Gary Neville since he started his new career as a pundit but this show of disrespect for arsenal has wiped off all the respect. As far as am concerned, arsenal has better history than Chelsea. Chelsea became a force when a certain billionaire splashed his money on the team. Please check the Forbes list of the most valuable clubs in the world and arsenal still stands above Chelsea. In order to make any sense, the ex captain of manure should have come out to say that Suarez should be sold to manure. Arsenal may not have won things in the last eight years, they however have laid a good platform for greatness. Neville himself has stated that arsenal is well run and the arsenal model is one of the best in the world. Arsenal has overcome the one-man team syndrome and now play as a team. With the Suarez in Liverpool last term, arsenal got four points off liverpool. Neville should keep his opinion to himself and let the managers do their work.

  2. The only teams Liverpool should avoid selling Luis Suarez to are Everton, and possibly Swansea and West Brom since it is them they will be competing with for 6th, 7th and 8th position going oblast season.

    Arsenal and even the spuds are way above their league so to speak – and that’s with Suarez in their team, going by the last 4 seasons.

    I often agree with what Neville says, but here, he’s talking utter bollocks. It is not a forgone conclusion that Chelsea will finish above Arsenal this year. Wasn’t he watching last weekend?!

  3. suarez is not a kid.
    1.he wants to remain in epl (no RM)
    2.he has a prob with Chelsea (after bitting ivano)
    3.he wants Arsenal switch.
    so gary Neville can stop his advices.

  4. Gary,your comment hides another scenario which I believe is more nearer what you fear and what I believe will happen and that your Manchester United will finish 5th this coming season behind Chelsea,,Arsenal and Spurs.Many a season your team has been propped up by the old jock,now he’s gone it’s all change at the top,for now anyway.Lets exchange views in May 14.

  5. Gary nivine or wot are u called..u just bin scared of ur shadow,suarez said he laught at chelsea wen dey showed interest at him,chelsea is interested @ rooney so allow him 2 go ova

  6. All Gary Neville is doing is being a manu boy – encourage the idea of Suarez to chelsea, who might then step off the gas over Rooney.

  7. Hahaha! how lame it can get. Gary obviously knows Manchester United has no place in the top 2 this coming season and after watching arsenal beat Man city couple of weeks ago, he wonders want could be done to Man united with the presence of Suarez. He should not bother cus 8-2 in favour of Arsenal this time is coming and if they think arsenal is going to seat and watch them take trophies year in year out? then, they have gone something else coming, So Gary, with or without the presence of Luis Suarez Arsenal is going to mesmerize Man united
