Luis Suarez carries a buyout clause in his Liverpool contract. The People says Suarez could be snapped up for £40million at the end of the season - after it emerged the striker has a release clause in his contract.

The news gives new hope to Chelsea and Manchester City as they move for the Liverpool star.

His value was quoted at £50million when City's interest was reported recently - and it is now thought Suarez could leave for less than that.

It's an intriguing situation Liverpool will want to play down. But whispers have been coming out of Anfield about the £40million trigger, and sources close to the player have confirmed a clause does exist.
