Contracts don't mean a whole lot when it comes to players of the cailbur of Suarez. If he's unhappy, and wants a move, he can eventually get his way.
Liverpool may want to sell him in the event that he becomes so unhappy, that he actually acts as a detriment to the club's success and morale.
So far, we haven't observed any obvious signs of suarez being unhappy, but players of his ilk are inevitably going to draw the attention of some perennial CL teams, and sooner or later, Suarez' mood can change if things dont turn around at lfc rather quickly.
A guy doesn't sign a 6 year extension if he has a worry that he'll be unhappy at the club in 6 months, or a years time.
And this rather quickly stuff is strange IMO, given it has been said numerous times under Rodgers this is a long term project, yet Suarez still signed a 6 year extension after all of this.
Possible? Sure, but it would be strange given what has happened to date.
He's not healthy, but when healthy, he's a 15-20 million player. They're taking a bit of a gamble, but if he gets back to form, they got good value for Rossi. 6-10 months and someone will pay double for him.
If he only gets back to 80%, you cut your losses and sell him for 5-7.
Rumor is they have agreed to a buy back clause of 18 million.
Smart move, if Pato recovers from his injuries and his form he'll be back on top of the world. He was valued at 40-50 million only a year ago. Such a shame he was plagued by injuries but hes still only 22.
I really like the looks of Acquah, hope we can get a deal done.
Didn't Barca turn down an offer for Villa recently? And is it true that Barca still hasn't paid all of the Fab and Song money? Could be a nice way of Barca seeing off some debt.
Walcott's representatives have been meeting with the club for a few days now, seems a deal does seem likely, fingers crossed and all that.
Villa won't go in January. The club doesn't do a lot of business in the January window and selling him now would be a mistake. Assuming the right player is brought in though, I could see him go in the Summer.
As for the Fabregas and Song deals, transfers generally are paid in installments. Maybe we could just give you Song back.
Some rumors here in France :
- M'Vila will leave Rennes if an offer is made. His price is now only 10M€. Huge bargain at this point. Zenith and QPR have made offers, but Arsenal and Tottenham are also said to be interested.
- Guillaume Hoarau has been in talks with 4 teams, including Everton and some chinese teams. Will he choose money over football interest is anyone's guess.
- 20 year old LB Haidarra, extremely touted here, 2 year starter in L1 and U21 NT starter is wanted by at least 5 EPL teams and PSG. Nancy's president expects him to leave this transfer window. Anyone who signs that guy will sign a stud.
