MOST COMMENTED

Confusion reigns in the Luis Suarez transfer saga, with the striker denying that he told Uruguayan newspaper El Observador that he had decided to stay at Liverpool.

Following Uruguay’s 4-2 win against Japan on Wednesday, however, the striker issued a denial. “I didn’t say it. Maybe someone else did; the main thing is that I am here now with the national team,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph is reporting that Arsenal is preparing one final offer for Suarez that, with add-ons, amounts to $76.2 million.

According to the report, the London club has close to $110 million to spend, but has thus far spent none of it. Read the original story...
