Sky Sports have confirmed that Luis Suarez hopes his transfer saga will come to a ‘friendly’ resolution. The striker wants to leave Liverpool but the club have so far refused to sanction a deal, rejecting two bids from Arsenal.
The latter of the bids was a £40,000,001 which was believed to activate a release clause in the attacker’s contract, however after careful investigation from the PFA, it was announced that no such clause existed and that Liverpool only had to start negotiations at £40 million, leaving the transfer fee completely up to the club.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted the player will not be sold for less than £55 million but club owner John W Henry made a stern announcement that they player would not the leave for the club for any price.
Suarez is still hopeful of a move and is considering submitting a transfer request to force through a move he feels is owed after agreements he claims were made last year. The relationship between player and club are at an all time low but Liverpool are still determined to keep him.
The Uruguayan is still hopeful that Real Madrid will enter negotiations for him and that Liverpool will be more willing to discuss a deal with a foreign club rather than a direct rival but will do his best for Liverpool while he still remains at the club.
“I’m still defending the Liverpool shirt and I will do so until the last minute.”
“My aim is to reach an agreement with the club in a friendly manner and I hope the clause we agreed a year ago is fulfilled. Up to now, it hasn’t been.”
“It’s not that I want to or am desperate to leave, but I like things to be clear and a year ago I made my position to the club clear.”
