Bad news Arsenal, Real! Suarez bro in no repeat summer saga hint

Liverpool striker is content at Anfield, almost one season after hoping to exercise a transfer away from Merseyside.

Sufficiently motivated Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is enjoying "incredible" form at Anfield, his brother Paolo Suarez has stated, before going on to explain that the formidable forward is content on Merseyside; a statement that appears logical to infer that the player will remain a Reds asset, rather than attempt to transfer away from the North-West of England for a second consecutive summer window.

Suarez was subject to a brace of bids from opportunistic Arsenal, with the second - a £40m plus a pound - laughed off by the upper brass at L4 before prompting owner John W Henry to ponder what the Gunners lot have been smoking.

Arsene Wenger was not the only one interested in Suarez, a player whom appeared desperate to leave Liverpool due to their disappointing season but mostly for the negative press he was subject to.

He has, this season, embarked on the form of his life and has registered statistics - one goal scored or assist provided once every 48.9 minutes on average this season - traditionally only associated with Cristiano Ronaldo. Even Lionel Messi, in league football alone, has "only" managed to score or assist once every 57 minutes on average.

Speaking to Four Four Two, Paolo indicated that the reason for Suarez's stupendous form in front of goal may have been down to the coverage he received throughout last season, over 2013's summer and into the current campaign, where he was suspended for the first six matches in a ban that stretched back from the campaign before.

"Luis likes when somebody writes him off, it's a great motivation," he said. "We Uruguayans all feel that way, actually. Luis has a very quiet character. But when he enters the pitch, he is different. I've never met someone so eager to win in any situation, no matter if it's a training session, or a friendly game, the pre-season or post-season. He's always focused on scoring and winning."

As the season has progressed, Suarez's estimated market value has increased substantially, leaving question marks over whether Arsenal would be willing to go to £80m, or even a world record £90m, for a player they attempted to purchase for half that amount eight months ago.

Only few clubs could realistically afford such an expensive addition yet one of them was linked with making a move this summer as the Metro, this morning, indicated that Manchester City are preparing a summer move.

Regardless of any speculated interest, it appears Suarez would be content to remain at Liverpool, under the management of Brendan Rodgers who has been so successful in developing a consensus world top three footballer.

"Luis is playing incredible football at Liverpool. I think the club suits him and equally he suits the club. His teammates are terrific, too," concluded Paolo.
