Although we’ve been dubious about the legitimacy of the Luis Suarez stories in recent weeks, Liverpool have confirmed that they rejected an Arsenal offer for the Uruguayan striker.
The club’s managing director, Ian Ayre, told Bloomberg, “I’ve heard him say it would great to have an opportunity to play for Arsenal and likewise Rel Madrid. But He certainly hasn’t called me up and said he wants to leave.
We had an offer which is fairly public from Arsenal. We said no to that offer, and as far as we’re concerned he turns iup for training when he’s due back. And we’ll move forward on that basis.”
It remains to be seen if Arsenal will test Liverpool’s resolve with further offers.
Arseblog News remains firmly in the Higuain camp, and hopefully a deal with Real Madrid can be done so as to avoid the drama that comes with Suarez, who is banned for the first six games of the new season.
Still, it’s all a bit too real now.
We might lie down.
