PFA chief Gordon Taylor has labeled Luis Suarez’s move to Arsenal as ‘practically impossible, reports Arsenal station.
The striker asked for help from the PFA to clear up the clause in his contract that he felt allowed him to leave the club for a bid of £40 million. After overlooking the contract, Taylor confirmed that no such clause existed and that Liverpool had the right to sell Suarez for whatever price they wanted too.
Reports had suggested Arsenal were set to bid £45 million for the striker but Taylor feels the bid would be a waste of time.
“With the transfer window expiring, the difficulties of not only selling him to a competitor but also replacing him makes it practically impossible.”
“I think it really muddies the waters to have buy-out clauses that are supposed to be confidential between employer and employee.”
“These are issues we are going to have to raise with the Premier League at our regular discussions.”
The comments certainly dampen Arsenal’s hopes of landing the 26-year old but the transfer window is often unpredictable. With Suarez considering legal action from the Premier League, Taylor has said any result from the Premier League would be too late for either club to react this summer.
