Martin Charquero has revealed that Luis Suarez might be close to ending this transfer saga by signing an extension with Liverpool FC.

Renowned Journalist Martin Charquero Claims Luis Suarez Won’t Leave LiverpoolThe Luis Suarez transfer saga has seemingly taken another unexpected twist. The Uruguayan international has grabbed the headlines throughout this summer, expressing his desire to leave the club – initially blaming the English media for his departure. First he was linked with Real Madrid, but with the Spanish club showing little interest in the Liverpool striker, Arsenal was touted as his future destination. The Gunners have already failed with a, now infamous, £40m plus £1 bid for the striker and report suggest that the London club were preparing for a final bid of around £50m.

Suarez left nothing for imagination as he once again publicly stated his desire to join the Gunners and blamed the club of breaching his contract, which he believed had a clause to let him leave for a bid over £40m. But Liverpool dismissed his statement, saying they were only obliged to listen to offers over £40m, and will not be forced into selling him. As this situation turned ugly, Suarez said he was verbally assured by the club that he will be sold if the club fails to reach the Champions League last season.

Brendan Rodgers came down heavily on Suarez for showing disrespect to the club and the supporters and forced him to train away from first team squad. Liverpool stood by their decision to not sell Suarez to any of the rivals in the Premier League, as Suarez was also asked to apologize for his behavior to the fans and the club, but reports suggested that the Uruguayan international refused to do so.

Now in an unexpected turn of events Suarez could sign a new contract and extend his stay at Anfield. Respect Latin American journalist Martin Charquero has claimed that the want away Liverpool striker will not leave the club this summer, out of respect for the fans who stood beside him during his troubled times, and could possibly sign a contract extension with the club.

“Luis Suarez confirms to me he will not leave Liverpool. The support of the fans has influenced his ­decision.

“Suarez see it as likely that he’ll sign a renewal (extension) to the contract that binds him to Liverpool.” – Charquero tweeted.



Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said that although he is unsure about what the future holds for Luis Suarez, he is confident that the striker won’t join another English club.

“I don’t know what is going to happen over the next few weeks.

“But I am really confident he won’t be going to anyone else in England.” – Gerrard said.

The England international also assured that he would do everything in his capabilities to retain Suarez, if he can influence his decision. He also emphasized on the fact that the club needs to retain its best players in order to compete at the top.

“He is one of the best players in the world, so I can understand why clubs are showing an interest in him,” he said. “If I can use my influence to try to make him stay, of course I will do that.

“I enjoy playing with him and I don’t want him to go. For Liverpool to be successful and to keep moving forward, we need to keep our best players.” – Gerrard added.

Although either of Liverpool or Suarez are yet to confirm this news of him signing an extension, this can come across as a huge blow for Arsenal. As the transfer window approaches its end, the Gunners are yet to make any significant signing that was expected from them this summer. Arsenal have already lost out on Higuain, Jovetic and now losing out on Suarez could mean the Arsene Wenger will have to rely on Giroud upfront. Suarez and Rooney were the only big name strikers available in the market, and the Manchester United striker is likely to join Chelsea.

Liverpool on the other hand will have strong hopes of breaking into the top four if they are able to retain Suarez. They have already made some key signing this summer and with a match winner like Suarez in the  Squad, they can look to displace Arsenal or Tottenham in the League table.
