The Luis Suarez transfer saga has fallen so far down the rabbit hole of absurdity, one side is demanding apologies and the other side is refusing to grant that request.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are essentially saying, "Please, pretty, pretty please, can we buy Suarez? We'll be your best friend forever!"
From John Cross of the Mirror:
Rodgers is adamant that Liverpool will not sell the player to Arsenal, but Mirror Sport understands the Gunners want peace talks and boss Arsene Wenger is still hopeful a deal can be struck.
Liverpool boss Rodgers has insisted Suarez, currently frozen out and training on his own, will not be allowed rejoin his team mates until he apologises both publicly and privately for his claims that promises made when he agreed to stay at Anfield last summer have been broken.
Suarez very well may return to Liverpool, but he will not be a happy camper if he does, and it's hard to envision him apologizing at any point. In fact, Rodgers' request for an apology may ultimately ensure Suarez refuses to play for the Reds.
What a messy situation this continues to be. Surely, the devolution of this scenario will continue right up until the end of the window.
