Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has rejected suggestions that he has release clause in his contract that will allow him to leave in the summer. Suarez signed a new contract in December 2013 to extend his stay at Liverpool. This new contract also made him one of the highest earning players in the Premier league with a weekly salary of around £ 200,000 per week. He was a major contributor in Liverpool’s title challenge last season. However, the club failed at the last hurdle after taking just five points in the last three matches.
Suarez personally enjoyed a great season and lifted a whole host of accolades including the PFA Player of the Year award. Despite this, there has been continuous speculation linking him with Real Madrid. He has now denied the rumours stating that he is only concentrating on the World Cup and not about a potential transfer. He has also rejected speculation that the reserve clause in his contract that will allow him to leave Liverpool for a certain fee. The club rejected the chance to sell Suarez for £ 40 million in the summer when Arsenal came in with an offer.
He has also rejected transfer rumours with Barcelona by saying that he is fully concentrating on Liverpool right now.
“There is no clause that suggests a priority for a specific team. I’m not the coach. They know what they need. I have a contract with Liverpool. My head now is focused on the World Cup. I had a very good season with Liverpool but now I am focused on the World Cup. Everyone knows that there is always too much media speculation. I turn the page (when he sees speculation) – you know what the press is like, how they speculate, and you try to not take any notice,” said the striker.
