By on November 26, 2012

Liverpool are bracing themselves for summer interest in Luis Suarez after it emerged the Chelsea and Man City target has a £40m buy-out clause in this contract, according to the Mirror.

Suarez has been one of the players of the season so far and currently tops the goal-scoring charts with 10 goals. Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with a move for the Uruguayan hitman in recent weeks but Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted the striker will stay at Anfield.

However, the decision could be taken out of his hands after it emerged that the 25-year-old has a £40m buy-out clause in his contract and there is little Liverpool could do to prevent him moving if that figure is met.

Liverpool will be keen to play-down the existence of the buy-out clause as they are desperate to hang on to their star man. There are no immediate concerns that Suarez would push for a move as he recently signed a new contract that runs until 2016 and hasn’t given any indication he’s unhappy at Anfield.

However, Liverpool currently sit 11th in the league and if they fail to qualify for the Champions League again this season, Chelsea and Man City are ready to try and lure him away from Merseyside and it seems £40m would be enough to land him should the player decide it’s time for a move.

Would you pay £40m for Suarez? Will he look for a move if Liverpool don’t finish in the top four? Get involved in the comments section.

      Beautiful English collins, well written. Suarez can go for that price I am sure we would be a better team if we got Dzeko from Man City in exchange with 15Mil or a similar type of deal.

    Lete’s have a think on this one then. Suarez recently signed a new contract, would Liverpool really only put in a £40m clause if he insisted on a clause in his contract. If they have, then they are stupid. The clause should have been top end of £60m minimum, with it in the contract that that is for foreign teams only.

    It sounds like BS made up by the sunday papers to disrupt Liverpool once again, and now everyone is running with the story.
