Suarez camp insists Liverpool backtracked on Champions League exit promise

Luis Suarez feels Liverpool have reneged on a verbal agreement to allow him to leave the club for a Champions League-qualified side if a fee of £35m was offered, the Daily Mirror has reported.

It is claimed by Suarez’s agent that the Reds told Suarez they would negotiate with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich or one of the big London clubs if £35m was put on the table – but that Liverpool would never sell to Manchester United, which the Suarez camp accepted.

Arsenal have made a number of offers for Suarez, including going over what they believed was a £40m release clause in Suarez’s contract, but Liverpool have steadfastly refused to let Suarez leave. However, the player is unwilling to give up on a move to the Gunners and is of the belief that Liverpool have broken their promise. Liverpool however insist the contract is clear and that they only have a duty to inform Suarez of the approach, which they have done, rather than accept the offer.

The Mirror adds that the Suarez camp suspect there has been interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea that they should have been informed of as per the terms of the contract. The matter could eventually be taken to a Premier League tribunal as Suarez attempts to force his way out of Merseyside – in much the manner he engineered a move away from Groningen and to Ajax in 2007.
