Liverpool’s stance in the Luis Suarez transfer row is to remain resolute, despite the player having reportedly agreed to a lucrative move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, reports The
Spanish paper Marca, a famous publication with notoriously close links to Real Madrid, reported that Suarez has agreed personal terms with the club despite the Spaniards continuing to kill time before following up their interest with an official bid.
Marca also reports that Suarez has indeed received offers from elsewhere as well, and is not against giving these offers serious consideration should Real fail to produce an offer in the region of £40m to Liverpool for the Uruguayan’s services.
Liverpool have said previously that if Suarez wants to leave he will have to submit an official transfer request – meaning he would forfeit much of the transfer fee percentage due to him in the event of a move.
Anfield bosses also reacted angrily to the suggestion that Suarez may have been discussing personal terms with Madrid, having publically stated that the player was not for sale and would have been in breach of contract if he had taken it upon himself to talk to the Spanish outfit.
Suarez has made no secret of his desire to move to the Bernabeu, however, and with Real Madrid having finally confirmed Carlo Ancelotti as Jose Mourinho’s successor, time will tell whether the Italian’s interest in Suarez is sufficient to up Real’s efforts and get the deal done.
