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...
