The Daily Mail has Liverpool fans nodding in agreement in the Football Transfer Tavern with their latest report on the club.
The publication claims that Luis Suarez is worth at least £100 million – according to his manager that is.
Brendan Rodgers waxed lyrical about the Uruguayan forward and claimed that he was on a par with the two best players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and noted that his price tag should reflect that.
As one of our punters points out over his brunch, the fact that Suarez has now scored a staggering 28 goals this season – and does not take the club’s penalties is astounding, and makes him worth every penny.
Liverpool have the destination of the title in their hands, with Chelsea and Manchester City set to visit Anfield and should they manage to win their seven games, they will be league champions for the first time in their history.
Rodgers gushed about Suarez, speaking about his level of play and comparisons to Messi and Ronaldo and noted: “Luis is certainly on his way towards that. His consistency has been phenomenal and what you see now is a more mature player.
“He is a world-class talent. Things evolve and times change. Time will tell.”
In the current climate where Gareth Bale was sold for more than £80 million, is Suarez actually worth £100 million? Let us know your thoughts below.
