Henry and Rodgers won’t accept a reduced price.
Liverpool will stand firm and continue to demand £80m for the sale of Luis Suarez following his four-month ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini, according to The Independent.
Suarez cannot take part in any form of football-related activity until late October as part of his punishment from FIFA for the incident which took place during Uruguay’s 1-0 win over Italy at the World Cup on Tuesday.
Despite the severe suspension, it is rumoured that La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, particularly the latter, remain very interested in signing the 27-year-old, who scored 31 goals in 33 Premier League games last season.
However, Liverpool owner John W Henry and manager Brendan Rodgers apparently intend to maintain their stance that Suarez is staying at Anfield unless his £80m asking price is met.
Suarez has fours years left to run on his current Liverpool contract, which is reportedly worth £200,000 per week.
Liverpool are expected to continue to pay Suarez while he is banned, during which time he will earn more than £3m.
