Liverpool Transfer News: Luis Suarez Confirms He Will Stay with Reds
Polarizing Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has confirmed that he will remain at Anfield as the summer transfer window comes to a close.
According to Goal.com's Tom Davis, Suarez commented on his situation:
When I left England, I had no news and I have no news now. To me, this is a closed chapter.
I always said that if something came up, then fine, but if not, then I'd stay happily at Liverpool. And that's what I'm going to do.
There were reports of several clubs signing me, but in the end I'm happy because I'm staying at Liverpool.
Prior to Monday's comments, the Uruguayan forward had been at the center of the most dramatic transfer saga of the summer, asking manager Brendan Rodgers and the Reds front office to let him play elsewhere so he could chase titles and Champions League football in 2013-14.
Suarez had been linked to several clubs during this summer's transfer window, including Arsenal.
The club maintained all along that they would not be selling Suarez, but pressure from Suarez kept the potential for a blockbuster move alive until the very end.
Suarez is currently serving a 10-match suspension for biting Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic last season. Thus far, Liverpool have survived without him, winning their first three Premier League matches to jump to the top of the league table.
What do you make of Luis Suarez's comments?
The 26-year-old signed with Liverpool in 2011, coming over from Dutch club Ajax on a five-and-a-half-year deal worth £22.7 million.
He would record four goals and three assists in 13 appearances for the Reds in 2011 before exploding for 17 goals and 10 assists in 39 total appearances in his first full season with the club in 2011-12.
Suarez only appeared in 33 Premier League matches for Liverpool in 2012-13, but made his presence felt each and every time out, scoring 23 goals (Premier League's second-leading scorer) and recording eight assists.
He would finish with 30 goals and 11 assists total in all competitions.
