Liverpool plan to renew Suarez's contract
It was no secret this summer that Liverpool's Luis Suarez was believed set on making a mad dash away from Anfield for what was hoped to be greener pastures at Arsenal in London or in Spain for Real Madrid. The Uruguayan was said to be tired of waiting for the return of Champions League football to Anfield, but since he finished his 10-match ban he seems in a different mind set.
Controversial reports have seen the Mirror claim that Liverpool were looking to still allow star striker Suarez leave in the January transfer window. However, according to quotes to BT from sources close to the club, the Reds have no designs on allowing the Uruguayan to leave anytime soon:
"There could be no new contractual arrangement with Suarez once the season got underway and he was in dispute with the club, trying to push through a move.
However, that has all changed now and the club have made it clear that Suarez has three years left on his contract -- well, just under now -- and to be fair to the player he has shown his commitment on the field.
What happens next largely depends on the club and player sitting down to discuss his future in the summer when he has two years remaining on his contract, and it is traditional at that stage for clubs and players to want to renegotiate contracts.
We shall all see how it unfolds in the summer when those talks take place. In the meantime, the manager has stated that Suarez will be treated the same as every other player under contract."
Since returning to first team action Suarez has scored three goals for the club and his partnership with young English striker Daniel Sturridge continues to only look better.
The two of them continue to look worthy of lifting the Reds and helping them maintain their strong start to the season as they currently sit joint top with Arsenal on 16 points.
