Luis Suarez: Barcelona Talks with Liverpool Productive
BBC – Liverpool have held “productive” talks with Barcelona over the proposed sale of striker Luis Suarez but no deal has been finalised between the clubs.
Reds chief executive Ian Ayre spent much of Wednesday in discussions with senior Barcelona officials in London.
The Reds remain adamant Suarez, 27, will not be sold for less than the release clause in his contract, believed to be between £70m and £80m.
“The talks held were productive,” a senior Liverpool source told the BBC.
“There are sensible expectations on both sides.
“Further talks and discussions will take place but no deal has yet been finalised.”
Suarez, who joined Liverpool for £22.7m from Ajax in 2011 and has four years remaining on his Liverpool contract, is serving a four-month ban for biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup.
