Is it just me or does anyone else think that the rumoured wording in Luis Suarez’s contract which says he would be informed if Liverpool received an offer of more than £40 million, just does not make sense? Why would a club put that wording into a contract, what is the point of it?
So when Arsenal made the bid of £40 million plus £1, did Brendan Rogers then go to Suarez and say, “Arsenal just made a bid for you and under the contract wording, we are now telling you”? End of story. What is Suarez then supposed to do? Just say “Thanks” and carry on? That does not make sense to me. There has to be more to it than that and I think that Suarez and his representatives must have thought it would lead to something further, otherwise, as I said before, why would they agree to the wording? Was there, as Suarez said in his statement to the papers yesterday, a promise from Liverpool to agree to discussions regarding his possible transfer to another club because Liverpool had not qualified for the Champions League and £40 million was the price trigger?
We fans will probably never find out the truth and personally, I just hope it gets sorted out before deadline day and Arsenal finally manage to sign Suarez!
