Rodgers expects Suarez to stay unless there is any serious offer from clubs that want him

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that striker Luis Suarez will stay at Anfield unless they get an offer that is close to what he is being valued at, by the owners.

The Uruguayan international, heavily linked with a move to both Arsenal and Real Madrid, expressed his desire to leave the club as he wants to be with a team that plays in Champions league.

When asked if he expects Suarez to stay with the club, Rodgers said: “Yeah, very much so. He’s a player that obviously is talked about and there’s been a been a lot of speculation over the course of the off-season.

“But the reality is that he’s a player that’s very much valued at Liverpool. Unless there’s any sort of offer that comes in which is anywhere near his value then there’s nothing to consider and we haven’t had that.

“So at the moment, in this present moment in time, he’s back in, he’s reported as he should do for training at the right time.

“He’s had a good rest and he’s now looking forward to getting fit with the rest of his team.”

Arsenal had an offer of £30 million rejected and it is reported that Liverpool are expecting somewhere close to £40 million to negotiate any deal with clubs wanting their star striker.

On what sort of fee that he has in mind for the player, he said: “I didn’t say we would sell him. I said that every player has a value and a worth. Doesn’t mean you’ve got to sell them.”

Rogers added: “He’ll join training today with all the other players and over the course of these next few weeks we’ll all communicate but him and I have been in regular communications throughout the summer.”
