Liverpool should sell Suarez to Barcelona, say Goal readers

The Premier League club will not allow the striker to leave for less than his release clause but voters in our poll insist that the Uruguay international needs to be offloaded
Liverpool should cash in on Luis Suarez and sell him to Barcelona, according to the majority of Goal readers who voted in our poll.

Brendan Rodgers' side are braced for a substantial offer to arrive from the Catalan club but will stand firm over the asking price for their prized asset and not allow him to leave for less than his stipulated release clause.

Suarez is currently serving a four-month Fifa ban from all football-related activities after being found guilty of biting Giorgio Chiellini, although any suspension will not hinder a potential transfer away from Anfield.

And the majority 64.9 per cent of votes in Goal's poll on Wednesday believe that now is the right time to offload last season's Premier League top scorer to Barca, where he would link up with Neymar and Lionel Messi to form a blistering attacking trio.

Goal understands that Liverpool are to request that Alexis Sanchez is included as part of an exchange deal for Suarez, while an offer in excess of £60 million will represent a huge investment on the £22.7m they paid to bring the Uruguayan to England in 2011.

Whether Sanchez signs or not, Brendan Rodgers will undoubtedly be able to use a large proportion of the potential fee received for the Uruguay forward to further bolster his squad as the Merseysiders again look to compete in the Premier League and Champions League next season.


Should Liverpool sell Suarez, or wait for their hand to be forced by Barcelona activating the player's release clause?
