Suarez signed a new £220k a week contract in recent months but the deal included a transfer release clause that is set at a massive £100m for Premier League sides but a lesser fee of £70m from prospective suitors from the continent.
Barcelona will use Chilean Alexis Sanchez as bait in pursuit of Suarez but Brendan Rodgers will only accept straight cash deals so that he re-invest such funds as he sees fit.
Liverpool will hope to keep hold of Suarez, who netted a hugely impressive 31 goals in 33 Premier League appearances last season as well as finishing as the English top tier’s second highest assist maker, but if they feel they have little hope in retaining his services then a sum of £100m could be well invested to help benefit the squad overall.
Suarez is sure to come in for a hostile recption next season from fans other than Liverpool after his brace effectively put England out of the World Cup last week. Not that Suarez looks the sort to worry too much about that.
If the record breaking deal goes ahead - smashing the £80 + million Real Madrid gave for Gareth Bale last summer it is sure to oli the wheels of a transfer frenzy over the summer with several clubs alreday set to spend £50 million and more.
