A couple of days a go, Luis Suarez came out and stated that if Liverpool try and block a move away from Anfield, then he’ll hand in a transfer request by the end of the week.
According to Suarez, Liverpool agreed that if they failed to qualify for the Champions League he would be allowed to leave.
He said to the Guardian: “Last year I had the opportunity to move to a big European club and I stayed on the understanding that if we failed to qualify for the Champions League the following season I’d be allowed to go.”
A few months ago Suarez claimed he wanted to leave England due to the media constantly portraying him as a villain. The obvious move would be to Real Madrid, after offloading Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli they are currently short on strikers.
There is no question Suarez can play at the highest level of football, having notched up an impressive 40 goals in 50 starts in all competitions.
With Brendan Rodgers adamant that they won’t be selling Luis Suarez to Arsenal; It really only leaves the choice of Real Madrid as a possible outcome for the prolific goal scorer.
A club has a big decision when bringing in a player like Luis Suarez, it’s their reputation as a whole, their dignity and what their club stands for.
If you lose your pride and morals as a football club, then what are you? In today’s world of football, with the money that’s being thrown out there you have to stand for what your club has believed in years after years.
For Liverpool, one word can describe their team after several years – dignity. They are always determined to strive for more and do the best of their ability. I find it very hard to believe now this Suarez saga has blown up that they would really want to keep him.
The problem that Suarez now has is – where to go? With Madrid setting their sights on Bale and have come out to say that they won’t be signing anyone until the Bale deal is done, it is putting Suarez into the shadows, which is unusual.
At this point in time it’s very difficult to suggest where Luis Suarez will end up, but for some reason – I don’t think it’ll be in England.
