Liverpool are ready to part ways with striker Luis Suarez after a weekend of controversy surrounding the Uruguayan, according to The Mirror.
After going back on his word to shake the hand of Patrice Evra prior to the weekend's clash between Manchester United and Liverpool, the club have been forced to release statements of apology.
Manager Kenny Dalglish was left to field questions surrounding Suarez's non-handshake, which was unbeknown to him come the end of the game.
Ian Ayre, the club's managing director, released a statement, which was endorsed by the club's American owners John Henry and Tom Werner.
Both Suarez and Dalglish have released statements of apology, but the forward's plea for forgiveness is unlikely to spare him a speedy departure this summer.
The Reds are unlikely to reveal their intentions to part with Suarez, given their desire to recoup most of the £22.8 million they splashed out on him last January.
The understanding is that despite Sunday's apologies, Liverpool feel Suarez has damaged the club's reputation significantly enough to warrant being offloaded.
The club will seek to rebuild relations with both The FA and United, who accepted the club's apologies.
