Liverpool will sell Suarez this summer - if £80M bid arrives

Liverpool are prepared to sell troubled striker Luis Suarez this summer. The Daily Mail says despite his four-month ban, Liverpool still believe Barcelona could pay as much as £80m for Suarez and principal owner John W Henry is determined not to allow him to leave 'on the cheap'.

Suarez's lawyer Alejandro Balbi was in Barcelona to discuss his client's future, when new Barca head coach Luis Enrique maintained there would be no issue about going for the 27-year-old.

He compared Suarez to the legendary former Barca forward Hristo Stoichkov and said: "Stoichkov deliberately trod on a referee but he was still considered a great player."

For Liverpool to get £80m would represent excellent business and Brendan Rodgers would be given the funds to reinvest.
