Liverpool’s managing director Ian Ayre says he is confident that Luis Suarez will sign a new deal with the club, and has hinted that Director of Football, Damien Comolli, will begin talks with Suarez and his agent shortly.
Suarez recently told Uruguayan media that he is happy at Anfield and wants to stay at the club beyond his current deal, which expires in 2016.
“Listen, he’s got a contract until 2016, he has said he wants to stay. I am sure Damien will be speaking to his agent,” Ayre said.
Right and proper
“Who wouldn’t want Luis Suarez? He is absolutely fantastic. He is such a popular member of our team.
“But they are the things we talk about behind closed doors, and we will further that discussion when it is right and proper.
“Luis is a vital and important part of our set-up, and long may that continue.”
