Suarez agents convinced Liverpool to slash buyout clause

Luis Suarez's new Liverpool deal includes a £70 million escape clause.

The Mirror says his advisers made sure that the new agreement contained a watertight clause that will enable him to leave if Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Reds chiefs wanted to pitch the clause at £100m, but were told that figure was excessive.

It was only when a compromise was reached that the deal was signed.
