Professional Footballers’ Association Chief Gordon Taylor says it will be practically impossible for Luis Suarez to leave Liverpool this month.
“With the transfer window expiring, the difficulties of not only selling him to a competitor but also replacing him makes it practically impossible.
“I think it really muddies the waters to have buy-out clauses that are supposed to be confidential between employer and employee.
“Inevitably that gets out. The drafting of such clauses are far from straightforward.
“These are issues we are going to have to raise with the Premier League at our regular discussions.”
With Liverpool owner John W Henry saying that Suarez is going nowhere, it appears more likely than ever before that Suarez is staying at Liverpool — whether he likes it or not.
