Suarez Most Likely Stuck at Liverpool

MOST COMMENTED

It looks like Arsenal’s second bid of $61 million for Luis Suarez has not triggered a release clause in the striker’s Liverpool contract. According to the Daily Mirror, Suarez has now decided to drop his pursuit of arbitration with the Premier League, because his contract clearly states that Liverpool does not have to sell him at ANY price. A Liverpool source tells the paper: “We are 100 percent confident -- there is absolutely no obligation to sell and that is very clear,” he explained. “We’ve all examined the clause in detail. All it obliges is good faith negotiations about Luis’s future.”

Now, with the Uruguayan under contract for another three years, coach Brendan Rodgers and his coaching team are determined to keep Suarez unless their valuation of around $84 million is met. This is the same figure that Paris Saint-Germain paid Napoli for compatriot Edinson Cavani earlier this summer.

As the Mirror sees it, Suarez’s only options are to either hope for a massive $80 million-plus bid from Arsenal, hand in a transfer request and risk the ire of Liverpool’s fans, or hope that a foreign club comes in for him, as Liverpool is understood to be willing to sell the striker abroad for less.
