Luis Suarez will refuse to answer any questions on his Liverpool future whilst on international duty with Uruguay, and has asked his teammates to keep quiet on the matter as well, according to the Daily Mail.
The striker has joined up with Uruguay ahead of their friendly with Japan, despite missing Liverpool’s last two pre season friendlies with a reported foot injury.
Suarez has previously been outspoken on his desire to quit the Merseyside club this summer, with the first reports of his desire to move away coming whilst on international duty ahead of the Confederations Cup.
The 26-year-old has since found himself at the centre of a bitter transfer saga, with the club refusing him access to leave for a Champions League side, despite Suarez’s claim he had both a verbal and written agreement in place when he signed a contract extension last summer.
It has since been proven Liverpool agreed to no such clause, and Suarez’s outspoken comments on the matter since have forced manager Brendan Rodgers to order the Uruguayan to train alone and submit an apology to his teammates and the club.
It is understood Suarez has no plans in place to do just that, and finds himself at the centre of an uncomfortable stand off with his employers.
He has therefore decided the best thing to do whilst away is simply keep his mouth shut, and hope his agent Pere Guardiola can persuade the Reds to allow Suarez to leave when he holds further talks with club officials this week.
Arsenal remain the only club to submit a formal offer for Suarez, their most recent consisting of £40million plus an extra £1.
