Another day, another mega-rich European club being linked with making a big-money move for prolific Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez, with this time Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain reportedly set to offer the Reds €42 million and the choice of either Ezequiel Lavezzi, Javier Pastore, Jeremy Menez or Adrien Rabiot in return for the 26-year-old, says Spanish sports daily Marca.
However, the chances of the Merseysiders accepting such a proposition are minimal at best, while Brazil midfielder player Lucas Leiva has told the Liverpool Echo that he now expects the Uruguayan to remain at Anfield due to the special bond created between the player and the club’s fans.
"If you see the games every week, you can see the relationship between the fans and Luis - it's very special," said Lucas.
"There were a few difficult moments last summer which everyone knows about but everyone - the fans, the club and Luis - was happy with the new contract.
"The club supported him in every single way and now he's out there giving everything on the pitch. He knows the club and he knows all his team-mates - he feels comfortable playing for the team.
"His family are very happy in Liverpool and I know he values that a lot. He worries a lot about his family and that was something he thought about when he made his decision.
"It was a happy end for both Luis and the club, and he's having a great season helping the team to move forward."
