Brendan Rodgers has said that Liverpool has complete control over the situation regarding want-away striker Luis Suarez. The Liverpool coach reiterated that the club has no intention of selling its star player. Suarez, currently on international duty with Uruguay at the Confederations Cup, has indicated during several interviews that he wants to leave his current employer for Real Madrid, blaming the English media for making life impossible for him and his family.
Separately, Liverpool on Sunday completed the signing of striker Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo for a reported $12 million. The 25-year-old scored 12 goals for the La Liga club last season. The Spaniard is Liverpool’s third signing of the season, after Kolo Toure from Manchester City and Luis Alberto from Sevilla, who signed on Saturday.
