London – Liverpool are braced for Real Madrid launching a last-ditch attempt to sign Luis Suarez.
The Anfield club’s position over the future of Suarez has not changed.
Having fended off Arsenal, they insist the Uruguay striker will stay on Merseyside after the transfer window closes, with principal owner John W Henry “categorically” insisting Liverpool would not be prepared to do business.
Arsenal’s interest in Karim Benzema has cast fresh doubt over the situation, as Madrid would need a frontline striker to fill the gap and Suarez said earlier this summer his dream move would be to the Spanish capital. When asked about the possibility of Madrid buying Suarez, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said: “I’m sure there will be plenty of activity in these last days (before the window closes).
“It is what it is. We will deal with it like we have during the summer.
“It’s very difficult at this time. We are trying to get one or two more quality players in through the door.
“If we lose Luis at this stage ... there might have been a point a few months ago where there was time to (replace him). But with 11 days to go it would be difficult.” – Daily Mail
