Suarez agent pushing clubs to test Liverpool clause with £40M bid

Agents for Luis Suarez want interested clubs to test Liverpool's denials of a £40 million buyout clause.

Agents for Luis Suarez want interested clubs to test Liverpool's denials of a £40 million buyout clause.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool maintain they only have to listen to offers for Suarez at £40m; the feeling is that it would take a fee of around £50m to buy the Uruguayan.

But Suarez’s agent, Pere Guardiola, the brother of Bayern manager Pep, will argue that £40m would trigger a release clause.

Arsenal are the only club to have made a bid for Suarez so far but even if they returned with a £35m offer, as has been mooted, it will not sway Liverpool, who arrive in Jakarta on Wednesday and are under no pressure to sell him.
