Can Liverpool Hold On To Suarez ?

Can Liverpool Hold On To Suarez ?

The news that Manchester City is showing a strong interest in Luis Suarez is very worrying for all concerned at Liverpool. Liverpool are very short of strikers at the moment, caused by various reasons, but for Liverpool to lose Suarez would be catastrophic for Liverpool in the situation they find themselves in.

Suarez has been virtually the only player scoring for Liverpool this season and his form has been tremendous which has brought admirers from all angles, not least from the blue half of Manchester.

Liverpool need more strikers added to their squad in January to take the pressure off Suarez, who is their only recognised striker. The news of City’s interest highlights how vulnerable Liverpool could be to losing their best players, just like when Torres had his head turned by Chelsea’s interest.

OK so there was a thought that Torres was not all that happy at the time when Chelsea showed interest as he was concerned with where Liverpool were going, but City could unsettle Suarez with their interest as Liverpool’s future is unclear in Brendan Rodger’s transitional period and Liverpool are still way off from challenging for the Premiership that Manchester City will do, so his loyalty will be tested.

Liverpool can’t guarantee Champions League football or pay mega money like City can do, so this could unsettle Suarez as he is world class and could play for any top team on his current form. But Suarez has stated his happiness at playing for Liverpool by signing a new contract in the summer after Liverpool backed him throughout the “rascist” affair involving Manchester United’s Patrice Evra, which Suarez was grateful for.

Suarez also loves to play every week and if he goes to Manchester City then that won’t happen because of the wealth of talent they have in a larger squad. Suarez looks like he is enjoying life at Liverpool and has a great rapport with the supporters, who idolise him.

But Suarez is ambitious and he loved Ajax and everything about the club, but when Liverpool came calling, Suarez jumped at the chance to test himself in one of the best leagues in the world by joining, and now Suarez could be offered another progression in his career that the ambitious Uruguayan could jump at that Liverpool can’t give him at the moment.

This is a problem that Liverpool now face as they need to keep hold of their best players as they build towards challenging for titles once again.

It will be a major test of Suarez’s loyalty to the club and for Liverpool who can’t afford to lose their star striker. Brendan Rodgers has stated that Suarez will be going nowhere, but a player’s ambition and a richer club’s money and guarantee of Champions League football could be too much for both.

Suarez is a world class player and is one of the best players in the Premiership at the moment and he may just be too big for Liverpool to hold on to in the position they currently find themselves in. Time will tell.

    Little too negative, mate. Luis has said “.. hopefully we’ll keep on progressing…”; which has the lovely idea that he thinks there is progress, but with an eye on that continuing. Isn’t that what we all want?

    I’m not taking the story very seriously either, for two reasons i) FSG know that selling him will devalue the Club; & they also know that’s the last thing to do anytime soon. ii) How much desire will he have to go to a Club which has Aguero, Tevez, Ballotelli, Dzeko & possibly Falcao? Also, the reported £40M is a complete joke! Ronaldo went for £80M, years ago. Suárez is every bit as good as him back then
