Luis Suarez has vowed to Liverpool fans that he will not orchestrate a move away from Anfield this summer, according to the Daily Star.
Without European football last season, the future of the Uruguayan was very much in question. Arsenal were the team of interest, with the striker requesting a move to the London club. However, failings by the Gunners to activate his release clause left Suarez in Merseyside.
His subsequent performances have been nothing short of stunning this season.The powerhouse behind the Liverpool title challenge, Suarez has now promised the Reds fans that he will not ask to leave the club.
Sadly for Liverpool fans, this is not a promise not to leave and therefore, his future may still be very much in the balance. Although the Reds are set to play in the Champions League next year - the reason behind his wish to leave the club last summer - they may not be able to keep the striker.
Reports of interest from Real Madrid have circulated the media in recent weeks. 30 goals in 31 games is always going to attract attention from major competition.
The player also bagged himself the PFA Player of the Year award - a prestigious accolade which only increases interest in the 27-year-old. In December Suarez did sign a contract extension, meaning the player currently holds a four-year contract with a wage bill reaching £200,000-a-week and, Brendan Rogers will be desperate to keep the player.
Whether this is possible or not time is yet to tell. What is known is that the Reds still require professional and efficient performances from their star player if they are to stand a chance of lifting the Premier League trophy this season.
Liverpool currently sit in first place, three points ahead of Manchester City who have a game-in-hand and a plus eight goal difference on the Merseyside club. Chelsea are also very much in the mix with only two games to go allowing for the closest title race in recent years.
Ultimately, Liverpool do not require summer transfer distractions as they aim for dizzying heights that the club has not reached since the 1989-90 season.
