Liverpool have inserted two enormous release clauses into the newly signed contract of striker Luis Suarez and it will require a world record transfer fee if the Uruguay international is to be prised away from Anfield.

Suarez put pen to paper on a lucrative new £10 million deal last week after a stunning spell of form during which he has propelled himself to the top of the Premier League scoring charts and Liverpool to the summit of the table.

Securing the signature of Suarez was a signal of intent from Liverpool and they have further demonstrated that they are under no obligation to sell their best players with the addition of sizeable buyout clauses in the contract.

According to The Mirror, any would be suitor from outside of the Premier League would have to pay £100 million to activate the clause while a further £30 million would need to be added to that fee were Suarez to join another club in the English top-flight.

Real Madrid and Chelsea have both been credited with interest in Suarez although Arsenal are the only club known to have made a formal approach for the player.

The Gunners made as many as three bids for Suarez during the summer transfer window, but their highest offer of £40,000,001 is dwarfed by Liverpool's new valuation of the former Ajax captain.

Liverpool resisted the chance to sell Suarez to Arsenal and this decision is now paying handsome dividends for Brendan Rodgers' side.
