The short marriage between Liverpool and their star Luis Suárez could soon be over.

According to various sources, Liverpool are considering selling the 26-year-old star from Uruguay, who has only been with the club since 2011. However, club spokesmen have stated that they would only sell him at a price more than £50m. Suárez also said in an interview on Friday that his intent is to leave Liverpool, expressing his disinterest with life in England as a prime reason. The striker later expressed his deep interest in Real Madrid and said it’s time for a “change of environment”.

Soon after these comments, a Liverpool spokesman stated that Suárez is not for sale and The Reds remain supportive of the young star and will honour his contract, which lasts until 2016.

Suárez still plans to submit a written transfer request to challenge Liverpool’s stance on the situation. He continues to claim that his reason for wanting to leave doesn’t involve financial motives or the current state of the club, but rather because of how he has been treated by the press in England. He became one of the most popular topics in the Premier League when he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a match in April. That action led to a ten-game ban and for the most part outshined a great season in which he scored 30 goals.

Despite all the differences, I believe it is in the best interest of both sides to move past these matters, meaning Suárez should honour his contract with the club and return next year. Even with a few blemishes in his past, the club needs to understand that he has way too much talent to be moved on because of a few immature mistakes, which as a young star could happen from time to time. At the same time, Suárez also should understand that trying to move out of Liverpool would ultimately show signs of his vulnerability.

Luis Suárez is certainly capable of still wearing the Liverpool shirt but it needs to be a priority of both sides to clean up his recent acts of immaturity on the field.

We’ve teamed up with Ladbrokes and their ‘Shoot!’ slot game to give away a Liverpool home shirt?

    Let’s see if he submits a transfer request first, eh. The literal translation of his interview last week is far removed from what the press over here “reported”. There seemed to be a lot of artistic licence, such as Suarez said he “was in a bad moment” and Sky pretending he “is in a bad moment”. The reporters asked him specific questions about Real Madrid, which he answered truthfully. They did, however, forget to mention he said he is under contract and is “ecstatic with the fans and their support”. Even his agent said that he did not believe Suarez would move.
    Another example of a media agenda, i’m afraid. Bale is, was, and always will be Madrid’s top target. Unless Liverpool WANT to get rid of Suarez, that is……………

    Anyway, back to burying my head in the sand :)

    I firmly believe the Manchester Utd press acolytes are pressing hard for Luis Suarez to move out of Liverpool. I hope he remains loyal to those who supported him in his times of trouble. He is a very exciting player who can get The Reds to challenge for trophies and the League Championship if he applies himself to the cause. Brendan Rodgers appears to be chasing players who can help to achieve that so Louis don’t run away fro our green eyed opponents and just do it on the pitch.

    His contract runs till the summer of 2017, he got an extension at the start of last season. Lazy journalism!
