Dalglish rubbishes Suarez move

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has rejected talk of Luis Suarez moving to Pairs St. Germain.

PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi claimed earlier this week that both Suarez and Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain were both wanted by the Ligue 1 side.

However, Dalglish has poured cold water over the talk, claiming the owner of the French side may have been miss-quoted.

"It comes as a surprise to myself," Dalglish said.

"And we have the cutting here to justify what was asked. It was a journalist that mentioned the names, and it was the chairman that said ‘oh, they’re interesting’.

"And there was a list of names, and there was only Suarez’s name was mentioned, but I don’t know if it’s Luis Suarez. I don’t know what Suarez it is."

Despite an impressive 14 months at Liverpool, his Premier League career has been marred after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

Events at February's meeting between the two parties, including Suarez's refusal to shake Evra's hand, as well as the Frenchman's decision to celebrate in the striker's eyeline, further swelled the issue.

Suarez has since embarked on attempting to re-build his reputation, however might feel a move abroad will assist in clearing his name.

Al-Khelaifi said: "We are already looking at the market for next season.

"We have clear targets in mind. It is true that we want Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain. Our real short-term targets are to win the Champions League and find a new Lionel Messi."

The French side flexed their financial muscle during last summer's transfer window, signing Javier Pastore from Palermo for €39.8 million.
