Luis Suarez set to agree contract extension

Luis Suarez will put pen to paper on a new contract to extend his stay at Liverpool this summer.

The controversial Uruguayan striker has certainly made his mark on the Premier League since signing from Ajax in January last year.

And after dazzling the Reds with his tricky runs and energetic style of play, Suarez looks set to repay the faith the club has shown him during a tricky year for the 25 year old.

“Yes I will continue at Liverpool,” said Suarez. “It is obvious I will continue. I have four years left on my contract and I am very happy and content to be here and I hope good things continue.”

Several clubs have confirmed their interest in Suarez, including Paris St-Germain and, reportedly, Juventus. But Suarez says that he wants to stay at Liverpool after the club fully supported him through a race row with Manchester Utd’s Patrice Evra earlier this season.

Suarez added, “I am over that. Obviously the important thing was the support from all the people and there is no need to talk about that as it is already in the past.”

Suarez still has four years left to run on his current deal at Liverpool and the Reds number 7 could be looking to extend his stay on Merseyside to 2018.

Jamie Carragher recently said of Suarez, “It is vitally important he stays. He is a fantastic player and I thought he was our best player against Everton. I wouldn’t swap him for anyone in the league. I see no reason why he would want to leave. He is playing well so hopefully he will sign a new contract, which he is expecting to do.”
