Uruguay attacker’s present contract expires in 2016.
Liverpool have no plans to offer controversial front man Luis Suarez a new contract until the end of this season, according to the club’s managing director Ian Ayre in the Daily Mail.
The mercurial Uruguay international has only just returned to the Reds starting lineup having served his ten-match ban after been found guilty by The Football Association of biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm in a Premier League match at Anfield last April.
However in his brief time back in the team, Suarez has already proved himself to once again be the Merseyside giants’ most important and impressive performer, with the striker having so far managed to find the back of the net on three occasions in total in his three matches in all competitions, all of which came in the Premier League.
And now Ayre has confirmed that the Reds will sit down with Suarez’s representatives next summer to discuss the possibility of the 26-year-old putting pen to paper on a new deal at Anfield to keep the forward at the club beyond the end of his current contract.
Suarez agreed a contract extension until June 30 2016 with the club last August and at the Asian Football Awards on Tuesday, Ayre said: “It’s too early to say that. We deal with every player in the same way. We review all our contracts with two years to go.
