Liverpool are looking to make a swift sale of “unhappy” striker Luis Suarez, according to fomer Red Jan Molby.
Suarez has been the subject of increasing speculation suggesting his career at Anfield is coming to an end.
The Uruguayan international, who is currently on holiday after competing for his country in the Confederations Cup last month, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, and more recently Arsenal and Chelsea.
“The last thing you want is an unhappy player and Liverpool know that,” Molby told BBC Radio Merseyside this morning.
“They’ve been busy in the market and it appears they’re almost readying themselves for life without Suarez.”
Suarez has repeatedly revealed how he is troubled by life in the English game after a series of controversies sparked angry reaction from the media and opposition fans.
Molby added, “I think he’s made it pretty clear that he would like to try something new, including playing at a club that’s in the Champions League.
“If that’s how he feels, the club has to do the business.”
Of course, this is only Molby’s opinion. Who knows whether he has some inside information or not to give him such a belief. Liverpool may well have been busy in the transfer market but none of the four new signings are in any way a replacement for Suarez so that somewhat flaws his rationale of Liverpool “readying for life without Suarez”.
