According to The Mirror, Suarez has confided in close friends that his Liverpool career is as good as over and will push through a move in January. His preferred destination is believed to be Arsenal, with figures of up to £50 million being talked about, although there would be no shortage of top clubs queuing for the 26-year-old’s signature. It is also believed that Real Madrid, Suarez’s preferable destination, are keen to make a bid.
The controversial Luis Suarez spent most of the summer trying to force a transfer away from Liverpool and then performed a u-turn when he learnt he would not be allowed to, appearing on the pitch with his daughter in an attempt to patch up his relationship with the Anfield club.
But it now appears as if Liverpool have resigned themselves to losing their star player as Suarez prepares to force through a move in the January transfer window, and the Anfield club are preparing for life without Luis.
Suarez arrived from Ajax in 2011, costing Liverpool £22.7million in the process, and could be sold for double that, which would be good business for Liverpool, but would also represent a step backward in terms of competing with Europe’s elite. It is believed Suarez’s main reason for wanting to leave Liverpool is the same old story; their failure to show the ambition to compete for major honours.
The saga appeared to have resolved itself in the summer and will doubtless open up old wounds and prove to be an unwanted distraction when January comes about.
Luckily for Suarez and whoever signs him, Liverpool’s failure to qualify for the Champions League means that he will not be cup tied and can instantly compete in Europe’s premier competition.
