Luis Suarez snubs loyal Liverpool fans as Arsenal’s Wenger shows Rodger’s how to negotiate

TRANSFER Balls: A look at what the experts in the media are saying about Liverpool’s Luis Suarez:

First up, let’s hear from Liverpool manger Brendan Rodgers, who continues to seek inspiration from reading  Neville Chamberlain’s Guide to Negotiating:

“Every player has a valuation but you have to look at the market. With Gareth Bale they are talking about £100m and Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez were arguably the two best players in the Premier League last season. You can’t say that Gareth Bale is valued at over 100 per cent more. We are a club with strong beliefs in what we are doing and nobody will be moving out of here.”

You can say that. Rodgers valued Suarez at £50m. It was he that said it:

“Obviously for a player of his quality, when you consider that Cavani has gone for £55m you know… Luis is up there in that bracket of top talent.”

And still Rodgers talks and talks:

“There is, of course, a point where you only want players who are totally 100 per cent committed to being here and I have spoken to Luis countless times over the course of the summer. Speculation can be difficult for players but he is back training and back working. The more he is around the group here, the more he is around the great support here, the more he will understand.”

Or as the Daily Star puts it today:

Sources close to the Uruguay striker insisted last night: “Luis is convinced these are his last days in Liverpool.”
