Luis Suarez can leave for £35m - but can't join Arsenal

Next Story

Liverpool are willing to let Luis Suarez leave Anfield for as little as £35 million this summer - as long as he doesn't join Arsenal.

The Mirror say that Suarez's agent Pere Guardiola has been told that a bid of £35 million would be entertained if it came from the likes of Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, but not if it was from a domestic rival.

The Uruguayan has expressed his desire to leave Anfield this summer, although both Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and Managing Director Ian Ayre have publicly claimed the striker is going nowhere.

While Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, Arsenal appear most keen to secure his services.

The Gunners have so far had two bids for the striker turned down, the second worth £40 million and £1, which they though would be enough to trigger what they believed to be a clause which would allow him to discuss a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool rejected the bid out of hand and claim the bid only meant they had to inform Suarez of developments rather than let him leave. 

The Mirror report that Suarez is frustrated with his club blocking his move to Arsenal - something his advisors believe should be allowed following the north London club's second bid - and won't rule out legal action to force his way out of Anfield.

The paper adds that Suares remains keen on a move to Real Madrid and would prefer a move to the Bernabeu should the Spanish giants come calling.

The saga is in danger of turning ugly as Suarez is reportedly angry at Liverpool not only because they rejected the offer from Arsenal but also because he believes he hasn't been told about alleged approaches from Madrid and Chelsea.
