Arsenal are prepared to make Liverpool striker Luis Suarez the highest paid player in the club’s history, with a four year contract worth around £160,000 per week, reports The Metro.
Brendan Rodgers is adamant that the player will not be leaving however, and has demanded an apology from the 26-year-old for his disrespectful behaviour.
The enigmatic Uruguayan striker is currently training on his own at Anfield, after releasing a scathing attack on the club in the media, pleading with Brendan Rodgers to see sense and let him leave.
Even with the player’s constant antics threatening to destabilise the start of Liverpool’s season, the Reds boss, like he has insisted all summer, is refusing to sell Suarez.
“We need to hear an apology to his team-mates and to the club,” iterated the Northern Irishman.
“I have to protect the fans of the club. When he comes back from his international trip, we will discuss the situation then.
“Myself and the owners are on the same page. He won’t be going to Arsenal, that is for sure. There has been a lot of speculation about other clubs being interested, but no-one has come in.”
Arsenal are prepared to shatter their wage structure to bring in the 30-goal forward, paying him a whopping £60,000 more than the club’s current high earners: Lukas Poldolski and Theo Walcott. To be fair to Suarez, the money has never been a lure for him, but the chance to play Champions League football definitely has. Unless a European heavyweight come in with an astronomical bid before the end of the month though, it is looking increasingly likely that the forward will be staying put.
