Liverpool legend John Aldridge says Luis Suarez must not be allowed to leave for less than Fernando Torres was sold to Chelsea for.

Aldridge believes his world class talents should command a fee in excess of the £50million they received from Chelsea for Torres in 2011.

"We can't let him go for less than we got for Torres," Aldridge told the Liverpool Echo.

"£50million plus £1 would be my starting point for negotiations. Their goals to games ratio is very similar but Suarez is a more complete striker and would be a huge loss to Liverpool. If he goes then we have to get top money for him."
