Want-away striker Luis Suarez is hoping for a ‘friendly’ outcome to the ongoing transfer saga concerning him, Sky
Arsenal have seen two bids rejected and since then, Suarez has claimed that he had an agreement with Liverpool that he could leave the club if they did not qualify for the Champions League next season, leading to a response by manager Brendan Rodgers, who said that Suarez had shown ‘total disrespect’ to the club.
And Suarez is still hoping that Liverpool can fulfil the alleged agreement. He told Marca: “My aim is to reach an agreement with the club in a friendly manner and I hope the clause we agreed a year ago is fulfilled. Up to now, it hasn’t been. It’s not that I want to or am desperate to leave, but I like things to be clear and a year ago I made my position to the club clear.”
While revealing that he was prepared to ignore captain Steven Gerrard’s pleas for him to stay at Liverpool, Suarez also reiterated his desire to play for a Champions League club, adding: “Gerrard has a lot of history with Liverpool and his words are very important but everyone should understand that I need to play the Champions League to keep growing as a footballer,” added Suarez. “Now I have the chance, I want to take it.”
