Luis Suarez’s representatives are still pursuing ways to force a move through to Arsenal and have found legal documents that could help their case.
The striker is angry at the club for going back on their agreement a year ago, allowing the forward to leave the club for a Champions League if Liverpool did not qualify for the competition themselves. The Merseysiders seventh placed finish saw them fail to qualify for any European football and Suarez wants them to fulfill their promise to leave.
Brendan Rodgers has so far blocked a move away, rejecting two bids from Arsenal, the latest £1 over £40 million that was believed to have activated a release clause. After investigation from the PFA, they claimed no clause existed giving Liverpool the final say over his future.
Liverpool owner John W Henry backed Rodgers’ stance on the situation by claiming Suarez would not be sold for any figure to any club. The striker was asked to train alone until he was ready to apologise to the club and train and play with the same spirit as last season, however with his desire to leave at a maximum high, that is unlikely.
Arsenal are expected to make an improved bid this week but should that be rejected, Pere Guardiola, Suarez’s agent, will present documents he feels will sort out the mystery release clause once and for all. However, they feel a move abroad will be easier to negotiate and are trying to attract foreign parties as well as Arsenal.
