Director puts smiles on Liverpool faces amid £50 million talk

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre admits he is confident Luis Suarez is set for a long stay.

Suarez, who has netted an impress 29-goals in the Premier League this season, has been linked with a move away for the last few windows as the likes of Arsenal , Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and now Manchester City all show an interest.

The 27-year-old signed a new contract in December, less than six months after trying to manufacture a move away in search of Champions League football.

However, Liverpool are on the verge of getting back into the Champions League and possibly winning the title.

And Ayre believes there remains a mutual understanding between the two parties after the club stood by him during his bans for racism and biting Branislav Ivanovic.

As quoted on the Daily Mail website, he said: There has been a lot written about Luis and he is a fantastic individual and we know he loves this club and the fans and has repaid anything he has done wrong in full,’ Ayre told BBC Radio Five.

“We have always been supporters of Luis and he has stuck with us and is having probably the best season of his career.

“All the conjecture which went around last summer leading up to the January window was dispelled by the fact he signed a new contract.

“I think when you have a player like Luis, that is going to be a perennial issue.

“The important thing is we remain committed together. We have supported Luis through thick and thin and he has done the same by signing up to a new long-term contract recently.

“We would expect that to continue, but we’d also expect people to come in and rattle our cage every transfer window.

“The most important thing was Luis said from the outset, when people started showing an interest in him, he wanted to play Champions League football and where better to play that than England’s most successful Champions League team?

“We love having him as part of the club and I know he loves being here so we would expect that to carry on.

“We don’t want to sell Luis Suarez and we’ve been consistent with that in every transfer window since he came here.

“We are a team on the up and he is a fundamental part of what we are trying to achieve.

“We would never wantonly sell Luis Suarez.”
