‘Furious’ Liverpool Want Suarez Talks Over Reports He’s Agreed Terms With Madrid
Liverpool will demand urgent showdown talks with Luis Suarez after reports emerged from Spain claiming he had already agreed personal terms with Real Madrid.
With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Luis Suarez could be in hot water with Liverpool.
Liverpool will demand urgent showdown talks with Luis Suarez after reports emerged from Spain claiming he had already agreed personal terms with Real Madrid, according to the Telegraph.
Spanish media outlet Marca – who has links with Real Madrid – reported on Wednesday that Suarez and his agents had held secret talks with the Spanish giants over a potential move to the Bernabeu and personal terms are believed to have been agreed.
Liverpool did not give the striker permission to speak with any club and now the Telegraph report that in light of Marca’s claims, the Reds will hold talks with the player as soon as he returns from his duties at the Confederations Cup to determine whether he has breached the terms of his contract.
Suarez still has three years remaining on his current deal and hasn’t submitted any formal transfer request but the newspaper suggests the Reds have been left furious with the way the Uruguayan has been dropping hints about wanting to leave in recent weeks and Marca’s claim has only heightened their frustration.
It’s usually extremely difficult for a club to stop players agents holding secret talks with other clubs and as is the case these days, things like personal terms are often agreed before any formal bid is submitted. Liverpool are desperate to hang on to Suarez and they won’t be bullied into selling him, with the Telegraph claiming they will demand at least £40m if Suarez makes it clear he want’s out of Anfield this summer.
