The player said, "I am 26, I need to be playing in the Champions League. I feel I have done enough to be playing in the Champions League at this stage of my career. Now there is an option for me to do that and I want very much to take it,"as reported by BBC. With Liverpool's adamancy, it might be that the player may personally hand in a transfer request, which would bring him closer to the exit door of Anfield. Luis Suarez said, "Last year I had the opportunity to move to a big European club and I stayed on the understanding that if we failed to qualify for the Champions League the following season I'd be allowed to go."
There were times, when the Liverpool think-tank have suggested that every player has a value. So, in this scenario, if a good deal comes through, Liverpool might just sell the player and move on, as there is no point keeping a player, whose heart is not with the club. It might just spoil the atmosphere within the squad. But, before selling the player, they need to find in a suitable replacement for Luis Suarez as well.
Finally, if Luis Suarez has his way and gets his deal done, it would be a big loss to Brendan Rodgers and his plans, as it was around Suarez that the team had been built. Liverpool fans would also feel betrayed, for they have always stood by him in his most controversial days as well, which included the Ivanovic arm biting incident.
