Transfer Balls: Sunday Times says Liverpool in breach of contract over Luis Suarez
TRANSFER Balls: Writing in the Sunday Times, Duncan Castles has an interesting line about Luis Suarez’ Liverpool contract.
TOTTENHAM are considering a bid for unsettled Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Colombia international Jackson Martinez as they plan to reinvest the income from Gareth Bale’s pending transfer to Real Madrid. Andre Villas-Boas is also seeking reinforcememts in defence and on the wing to mitigate the world-record sale.
A sucessful Spurs bid for Suarez seems fanciful. If Arsenal can offer Suarez the Champions’ League football he apparently craves, Spurs can’t. But this is the line that stands out:
With Liverpool refusing to honour a £40m clause in Suarez’s contract by permitting him to talk to Arsenal, the Uruguayan is likely to prove beyond Tottenham’s reach.
So. Liverpool are in a breach of contract?
But Caught Offside.com says:
“…in actual fact the two clubs are said to have already come to an agreement over the sale of Suarez, with the player set to join Arsenal for £45m on Aug 28 on the condition that the club have successfully navigated their way past their upcoming two-legged Champions League playoff that will take place across Aug 20/21 and Aug 27/28.
