Respected Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague thinks the Reds have got Suarez for one more season only…
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will stay with the Premier League club until the end of the season, but could well leave next summer, respected Spanish football expert Guillem Balague told Sky Sports.
The forward has recently returned from his ten game suspension, and slotted back into the side fantastically, scoring three goals in two Premier League outings, and linking up with strike partner Daniel Sturridge outstandingly.
The Uruguayan was desperate to move this summer however, and made countless remarks in the press about how he felt he deserved Champions League football, and felt unfairly treated by the English media.
Real Madrid and Arsenal targeted the 26-year-old striker, but Liverpool flatly refused to sell, and now Brendan Rodgers seems to have got the best out of the forward.
If Liverpool don’t finish in the top four this season though, it seems inevitable that Suarez will be allowed to leave.
Here’s Balague’s Suarez blog in full:
I don’t think Luis Suarez is going to leave in the winter, Andy, but in the summer, who knows? His priority has to be to have a good season and World Cup, and then we’ll see. There aren’t too many superstars up front in Spain at present because they’ve been ‘taken away’, although there are youngsters coming through that could fill that gap. Diego Costa was approached by Liverpool but he decided not to go; otherwise he would have been a perfect replacement.
