Liverpool's Suarez 'agrees four-year deal with Madrid' - report

Is Liverpool's Luis Suarez really heading for an exit this summer?

The future of Luis Suarez remains among the hottest topics in football.

And now Spanish newspaper Marca is testing the patience of Liverpool fans by claiming Real Madrid have 'agreed a contract' with Luis Suarez.

They report: "MARCA already reported a few days ago that there had been contact between Luis Suárez and Real Madrid. MARCA can now confirm that a deal to sign the Uruguayan has been struck between both parties.

"The deal is nothing new. It was reached some weeks ago. On one hand, there were the player's agents led by Pere Guardiola, Pep's brother and on the other, Florentino Pérez's envoys in these matters, the Money men. It's a done deal."

Yet despite these quite outrageous claims, Marca admit that Real Madrid are yet to begin negotiations with Liverpool over a transfer.

The paper insist that Liverpool have a £40 million release clause in Suarez' contract which the Spaniards are prepared to pay.

However the report, published today (30/5) is entirely at odds with comments Suarez' agent Pere Guardiola made today to Sky Sports:

"He is happy and he will stay at Liverpool." - Guardiola simply stated.

Yet whether this is just an attempt to save face after the player indicated he would find Madrid impossible to turn down, remains possible.

Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague also waded into the controversy yesterday, claiming that Suarez has a desire to leave Anfield, and is seriously considering his options.

It's likely until Liverpool and Suarez issue a joint statement on the matter, that this could go on and on all summer, and Liverpool fans are within their rights to be feeling a little uneasy about the future of their star player.

Marca's report has clouded an already confused situation - and will increase the pressure on Suarez himself, not his agent, to pledge his future to the Reds.

What do you think of the report?
