Suarez Apparently Agrees to Terms with Real Madrid
The News Desk has more or less ignored the latest Luis Suarez debacle, but a slow news day calls for slow news and with Spanish newspaper Marca reporting that the want-away Uruguayan has already agreed to terms with Real Madrid, it’s just another reason for Reds fans everywhere to begin bracing for impact.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers moved quickly to add strikers Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto to the side as the Spanish duo became his second and third signing of the transfer window. The speed in which both transfers were wrapped up suggest that the Reds showed a very keen interest in both players, but it’s easy to speculate on other reasons as well – namely the Anfield side wanting to avoid the ceremonial price gauging of anyone that experiences a financial windfall. The Reds continue to deny that the Uruguayan is for sale though a figure of £45mil continues to be bandied about and with the striker currently on international duty, his mouth and intentions have both gone unchecked.
Suarez recently admitted that he’d love to rival new Barcelona mega-signing Neymar in La Liga and his collection of jabs and semi-rational reasoning has become too vast for the meager column inches of the News Desk, though they’ve begun to be drowned out by the sound of batted eye-lashes as the striker continues his love affair with Los Blancos. Incoming Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti will have more than one mess to sort out after Jose Mourinho escaped to London earlier this month and this Suarez situation may be pushed to the top of the pile should the Uruguayan be forced to show his hand. It’s believed that Brendan Rodgers will take nothing less than a transfer request to begin dealings with the Spanish club; and with some reports suggest that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has done everything but agreed to how much his side will pay to close the deal we’re hoping that Ian Ayre and the rest of the Liverpool hierarchy makes this process as difficult as necessary – you know, just for giggles.

It seems like the sooner Liverpool resolve this and move on the better.
It will be important that they reinvest any transfer fee more wisely than when they sold Torres. But that is possible and, done well, could actually result in the team performing to a higher standard a la Arsenal minus RVP.
I’ve written recently on reasons why selling Suarez might not be a bad thing for the Kop – interested in your views:
£50,000,000 is the price,if Cavani is worth £53,000,000.But with idiots like Ian ayre at the club ( Who couldn’t negotiate his way out of a paper bag ) He will probably go for £30,000,000 ;-( And he’s doing a Shambolic job of getting MKHITARYAN to anfield ( With Dortmund placing a bid of £19.5,000,000 ) Are club will never progress with idiots of ayres standards,and DEADWOOD like Allen downing Shelvey Spearing Flanagan Robinson Jones.
AND THAT IS THE TRUTH.
HE is in a traing camp with his notional team in an important competition – HOW can he agree terms with anyone – pure nonsense.
Liverpool hold all the aces, let them play games but it will still cost them.
Flanagan will be captain 1 day so hes hardly deadwood
good read that .. not sure that we’ll be able to replace Suarez — or the goals he scores — right away but there’s promise in both Aspas and Alberto for the time being .. have a sneaky feeling that if he does leave, Rodgers will move for a more well established striker in an attempt to plug the gap with a little more proven player ..
we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out though .. his tune may change when the Confederations Cup is over.
time will tell on that, but he certainly has the work ethic to do it…
i’m sure he has a telephone and some free time. doesn’t take much these days…
don’t know that Ayre is necessarily the problem, but we need a squad overhaul .. that’s been the truth since Rafa left…at least now we’re getting it.
