Liverpool owner: we will not sell Suarez to Arsenal

John W Henry, owner of Liverpool, has said this evening that they will not sell Luis Suarez to Arsenal under any circumstances.

The American has told Ivan Gazidis that they won’t listen to any further Arsenal bids, and says it’s ‘ludicrous’ to consider selling the Uruguayan to a rival for the top four.

“We’re not in Europe this year and haven’t been in the Champions League for a while,” he said. “Obviously, to sell Luis to a rival for those positions, or one of those  positions, would be ludicrous.

“We are not going to sell Luis. I’m unequivocal that we won’t sell to Arsenal, whatever the bid is. I have not said it to Stan but I had a personal conversation with others at Arsenal and told him we would not sell to Arsenal.

“He won’t be sold even if a foreign club comes in because we do not have time to sign a suitable replacement. It’s a football reason. It’s not about finances.

“That’s why at this point, so late in the window, with everyone who’s already moved or isn’t moving, we can’t replace him. So for football reasons we can’t sell, and especially to Arsenal.”

This, on top of the ‘What are they smoking?’ Tweet, means that the American will look like the least credible man in football if he backs down now. He’d look like Grant Holt at an Anorexics Anonymous meeting.

Henry also expressed his unhappiness that Arsenal were privy to a confidential contract clause. Asked if it concerned him, he said, “How does a club who doesn’t have permission to speak with your player see his contract? It should have been confidential.

“Unfortunately it’s the way it works in football. People don’t speak about it publicly but that’s the way it’s run. It’s how things are done,” he said, ruling out any kind of official complaint.

Maybe it’s all part of the dance, but it strikes us this is going nowhere fast from an Arsenal point of view, and perhaps we might be better off looking elsewhere.

Or, at least, we might have been better off had all the other top strikers in Europe been moved on already.

Oh, Gonzalo. It should have been you.

Shit.

Indeed. We should test Dortmund’s resolve with a nice bid for Marco Reus.

D1

You’re Mr. Current Events. You mean Lewandowski, right?

Wrighty's Gold Tooth

Not a striker, but yes I’d love to see him at the Arsenal

Remember the invincibles because we aren't good anymore

Could be the winger we need. But they won’t sell this season. And we’ll be in a suarez situation again

Exclamation mark

I can’t understand why people think we, or any other club, can land Reus. He told Bayern to gtfo last year. he has a nice long contract with BVB – without a release clause (at least until 2015). The way they told Lewandowski to shut up and play, you think everyone would understand their best player is not for sale.

That said I’d love to see him here.

shitbird

Same thing goes for the Gundogan noise this week.

thw14

With the departures over the years from Arsenal, conventional wisdom is always ‘oh, you can’t keep a player against his will’. So there’s Dortmund who’ve told the player to do one and see out his contract, Liverpool are insisting on the same. What’s our excuse been? Just to put it in context, Liverpool are demanding at least 50 million pounds for a player who wasn’t the top scorer in the league after having finished 7th. We sold the league’s top scorer (after finishing third) for 25 million pounds. Both receive four year contracts, and you wouldn’t bet on the biter… Read more »

And we already were given an unequivocal “No” when asking about Lars Bender a couple months back.

CountLeaf

it was kind of different with skunk, as his contract was running short.

still, i find this liverpudlian punk from america commendable in a way. as much as i’d fucking twist his neck and watch him twitch, i feel some kind of respect for him not having what somebody else wants.

it’s all about money, though.

Goontang

Right now, i honestly think the best thing in the world would be for us to vs manchester city and get absolutely fucking thrashed this weekend in our last pre season game.

How did we become the laughing stock of the transfer market AGAIN.

Only Arsenal could take away that pure excitement that we were all feeling when we thought Higuain was all wrapped up, and replace it by sheer Anarchy.

Dave Gooner

I disagree. I don’t think we are acting dishonourably. It appears Suarez agent let us (and no doubt, many others) know that he wants out of the Merseyside Museum of 1970s Football and the terms they believed they had agreed with the Mausoleum of Dreams, and we acted on it, because we need an out and out striker. We triggered the clause, but Rodgers is a dishonourable wretch and clearly lied to LS at the start of last season. How that one will resolve itself now at the Merseyside Mausoleum is anyone’s guess, but its difficult to see LS playing… Read more »

Arsecrew

Are you sure that it’s Rodgers who is lying? It might as well be Suarez acting like, well Suarez.

WengersNoseHair

Just a small comment. I’ve also thought about Lewandowski. But, he’s determined to go to Bayern, as we all know, so I think Bayern told him to wait until his contract runs out at the end of this season and he can join them on free transfer, rather than move now for one season, probably with a very large fee, and thus forcing Bayern to pay an even larger fee for him the next season. I reckon Bayern told him to sit tight. And players have *some* say in whether they will be sold to another club, like Arsenal.

Dave Gooner

Arsecrew, the 40m + 1 bid from our side would appear to corroborate Suarez side of the story – it is clearly what he and his agent believed, and what they led us to believe in turn. (He needs a new agent by the way). Rodgers is just a liar, and not a very good one. I fail to see how someone as bad as his word could continue in a high profile club like Liverpool. Clearly he is NOT a man of his word, and a double dealer. Say what you like about AW, he has proved time and… Read more »

excitement for higuain? hahaa..

some dumb american

The sad thing is, in no way will this end the speculation.

damien joyce

no, i think it will, because next time AW is asked he will confirm that we have got the message.

shitbird

Bid higher and see if the tune changes.

Redhotlouie

To late missed the boat !

neutral

It’s over. Your move Wenger.

gar14

Don’t see what has changed really. They have been saying all along he is not for sale.

But they still have an unhappy player in their squad who could do serious damage to the team. And money talks. I remember the same thing being said of Cesc and Nasri.

Not saying it will definitely happen but if every club backed down when a bid was rejected, even as emphatically as this, then you would not get many big transfers.

shitbird

This is turning into an angry, drunken game of poker. At this point I’d bid 55m just to watch that cigar fall out of his mouth.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

It wouldn’t. He’ll play well for Liverpool this season as his career depends on it. He will still be worth the money next season, but the unsavoury part of his history will be a year older and there will be more teams in for him. He won’t choose us next year when he makes his bid for freedom. We were manouvred into making a move by him and his agent because they thought they could bluff their way through a deal to get him out of a long contract, and we wer stupid to bet 40 million and a pound… Read more »

John.w.henry: we will not sell suarez to arsenal.
Like we were expecting u to say u will. But for suarez being suarez, i won’t be giving up on the possibility of this deal going through. Plus, we now know what u’ve been smoking over there at anfield.

WengersNoseHair

It’s not beyond the realms of possibility Suarez will stay. There are some similarities with what happened with Benteke this season. He was also very vocal about wanting to move, but was eventually convinced to stay and sign a new deal.

Ok, there has been a lot more drama and sh*t-slinging with Suarez, but still, it just shows it’s not impossible for Suarez to stay at Liverpool

Bubba

Ugh

Bonjour

Fuck it. Let’s just give them a right thrashing when they come over to the Emirates. Oh and the snack bar at the Emirates should serve rat pies and rat meat burgers to cater for the away supporters too

Better than Tesco’s horse meat burgers… The waitress asked if I want anything on it. I said, “A fiver each way.”

Santi Claws

But Dave we don’t have Tesco’s in New Zealand.

I wonder if he was complaining about Liverpool knowing the details of Diego Costa’s contract. Or Mkhitaryan’s.

Matt

Did Liverpool know the details though?

Redhotlouie

Funny all these gooners getting very twitchy and desperate ! Big club are you’s missed out on your 2main targets and got no 1 ! What have you’s got to say about your owners now and wenger? Ha

Gooner

Still your player wanted Arsenal move. So f**k off

I love the way Mugsmashers even type in scouse! So funny.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

They’re never here for long though. Have to keep moving to stay one step ahead of the law.

Ruski

£40,000,002?

Chaplin35

That’s clearly an overkill from AWs perspective. More like £40.000.001.49

P38W26D12L0

Ah 49

What a fantastic number

I hope Arsene goes to the press and says, “I am going to make him an offer he can’t refuse”.

Dats not wenger area of duty. Its left for the shy spending club my club. Club don’t talk to coaches, they talk to club likewise the coaches.

Well now we will see if there really was a plan for this summer, I truly hope so.
I honestly think we are “only” one top player in each position (GK,CB,ST and a big/tough midfielder) from competing with the 3 above us and also putting the shit behind us even further behind.

Come on Arsene, speak with ur scouts, or txt me and I’ll send u my FM2013 shortlist!!

I really love Wenger as much as the next arsenal fan, but this summer has been a shambles and someone has to take the rap for it. Someone hasn’t been doing their job properly and I have the worrying feeling its as much Wenger as Ivans fault nothing been done.

Surely someone can do better than this, I really expected more this summer, maybe I will be… Read more »

Toure Motors

Despite all the public statements from May onwards i think you would have to question the willingness of the manager and the club to spend the required money to improve the team. I think we’ll spend before the end of the summer but it won’t be on ‘marquee’ signings, and as a result we ultimately won’t be competing for either the EPL or the CL. I can see a scrap for third or fourth place this year. It’s a real shame because there was a genuine opportunity to become more competitive this summer

neutral

Same as every window, so fucking annoying.

7M profit, how much saved in reduced wages?, no new players (sorry Sanogo…, you just don’t count).

Bunch of headless chickens!

and Liverpool showing how you deal with a want away player

and someone has to take the rap for it.

why?

has the transfer season finished ?

what is it with all you “experts”….? ….. always looking to blame someone……

We’ve been hear before. What’s to say it’s going to change now? After everyone saying they’d learned from summer’s past, we’re already supermarket-sweep level.

he who cant be named had a 50 million release clause in his contract thats why he was sold, thats what john henry ment when he wanted to know how arsenal knew about the 40 million clause in the contract of judas the second coming and chelsea knew bou the 50 million buy out in d oder cunts contract, ynwa

Cool, here’s some rat stew.

Wake up man, your desperate need for a classy striker is clouding your judgement, Liverpool will not sell Suarez to a rival for the CL spots next year, time to move on. I see tonight you’re linked to Eto, can you see Arsenal paying £20m wages to a player? I can’t.

A statement from the owner doesn’t make liverpool suddenly Arsenal’s rival for a CL spot.

Good .. Keep your eyes and all the talk about the unattainable Saurez and come September when we don’t sign players , I can claim that we tried but didn’t.

Next year, I’ll put in a bid for Ronaldo and drag it all summer.

It has suddenly dawned on me that Wenger is both a hoarder and a miser. He can resist picking up pieces of tat he finds in the street and he has no intention of spending money. He practical fell over himself to pickup Yaya for free but spend real money? Like heck! He’s fooking known all along that Suarez was not for sales.

Higuain has already gone – why would you bother bringing him up?

Gooooonah!

The point about Higuain is that he is the one we should have gone all out for, look at the facts: Cheaper than Suarez Younger than Suarez Better goals per game record than Suarez Not a fucking psychopath Doesn’t have a 6 game ban hovering over him for the start of the season The only enjoyment I have had from the Suarez ‘saga’ is the meltdown from the drama queen bin dippers, desperately clinging to the past to show they are the bigger team.

Another master class performance by AFC. Reminds me of when Utd tried to buy Ronaldhino and went on to tell all they’d more or less signed him…

I don’t get the contract thing though? Suarez and his agent signed the thing, they knew of the 40 m limit thinging mijig? Surely they can tell who they want?

steviesquiff

there is a confidentiallity clause written in contracts that states they are not allowed to make any such clause known to another club. happens so often that its obviously not worth the ink that signs it, but technically suarez and his agent are in breach of contract.

Bee

hmmm, well if he’s in breach of contract then fire him tomorrow, thanks

Andy Mack

It’s probably possible to fine him wages instead of sacking him and mercenaries don’t like losing money (ask Na$ri and Ad£bayor).
It’s the same reason they will not put in a transfer request unless the absolutely have too.

Can tell who they like now because he is going no were !

Pete The Gun

I was bored of the story, then frustrated by it, now I couldn’t give a witches tit about it. We are one of the worlds biggest clubs and the way we conduct our business is nothing short of farcical, even if he does end up signing. Up the Arsenal, just want to see some football now.

Matt

He’s obviously learned his lesson well.

Ed

And there it is… What a lot of us thought / feared would be the case weeks ago. Where to from here then? Any club we now approach for a striker will hike up the price because they know we are desperate and we don’t like to pay a penny over our valuation so ….

Steve

I get the impression management never cared. They put the bid in thinking it would trigger the clause and when it didnt, sat by waiting to see if pool infighting and/or legal action might go their way.
The media ultimately tried to place arsenal in the center as if we purposefully tried to agitate this saga.

Henry knows we can get £60 million pounds next season lol because Suarez knows now,and he can’t fuck about ( BECAUSE IT’S WORLD CUP YEAR ) lmfao And he will be playing out of his skin lol Just think,if use didnt take the piss with that bid £40,000,001 he might have been wearing the arsenal colours now lmfao 😉

they’re pissed off because they are way below the other teams, struggling for money and players, and there star player wants to leave

does it matter who made it public? the point is the bid was made surely??

TOGooner

Henry is pissed off because he doesn’t like coming off as an idiot on twitter. Brendan Rogers is pissed off because emotional blackmail and his arrogant messiah-like attitude to management doesn’t work in the world that exists outside his ego. Liverpool fans, well, they spent the best part of the year telling their kids its OK to be racist and bite you colleagues, only to find Luis Suarez, like the rest of us, considers them a mid-table club.

WengersNoseHair

Utter horse shite. Suarez is not better than Higuain. The Real Madrid team does not revolve around Higuain, the way Liverpool revolves around Suarez. If anything, RM revolves around Ronaldo, which makes Higuain’s record even more impressive, on top of the fact that his figures for minutes per goal, shots per goal etc. are significantly better that those for Suarez.

Pooner

Never paid any attention to this Henry chap before, but he seems quite the brazen twat. Would like to see us just pack this whole thing in now and move on to other, less contentious, signings. Then smash Liverpool home and away.

We should make a play for Benteke. He may have just signed a new contract but I’m sure if we bid £30m we’d get him. He’s young, talented and with Premiership experience but not so big a star that he’d mind being rotated or not first choice. It’d be worth the money.

Ivan Gazidis is dreadful when it comes to the transfer market. In all seriousness, that man’s job has to be in question. I am not just worried about this season, with the thin squad vulnerable to injury. What happens next year when some of our top players jump off because they feel we are not ambitious enough in the off season? I really hope that doesn’t happen, but this administration will have made their own beds if it does. On a brighter note, the trust meeting should be lively…

“A proper manager would prepare his team for the new campaign”

Arsenal don’t need idiot fans like this guy. getting their jollies from booing our team. seriously, go piss off and support some other side.

How do some of you have the audacity to tell someone else to go and support another club.

Let’s have it right. Most of you will fuck off and be Real or PSG fans when your beloved eventually leaves when even he sees he has run out of steam at Arsenal.

You came with him, or during his time, and no doubt your passion for Arsenal will wane or migrate with him when he leaves.

So save the typical BS comments and focus on where your own loyalties lie, the club NOT the manager.

arron

I’ve been supporting arsenal since 1985, when I was 10. first and only club I’ve ever supported.
I agree wenger is nearly due to leave, but don’t agree with fans who abuse him considering what he’s done for us, titles, stadium (viable sustained future, when? soon -haha).
Probably a little heavy handed saying you can piss off to another team – obviously your entitled to your wenger opinion. I just don’t think twat is fair.

Wenger should have said the same 12 months ago and RvP won them the title. Of course, the classiest club in the whole entire scouserverse and beyond Liverpool won’t win the title even with Chompy but Arsenal certainly might so to say they don’t want to sell to a rival is utterly laughable. They’re nowhere near being our rivals. Your statement, Mr Henry, is what is ludicrous.

All this is about to make me lose my mind. I really don’t understand how it can be SO hard for Wegner to sign someone with 70 million pounds. I just don’t get it.

Who The F**k are Sp*rs?

Neither does he.

These days 70 mill just aint as much as it used to be, 70 mill is what a top player costs now with all the Billionaire owners about. We are looking for some bargain 25 mill buys 🙂

For one, other clubs don’t have a song and dance about how much they have in their “war chest”. Man City quietly went about spending £90m, and Spurs even have spent £50m without fuss. Why did we tell everyone we had that much money? Ok, clearly we can’t put all the blame for the lack of spending on this, but it certainly didn’t help.

Does the failure of this summer, of course that could change, cause a fissure or rift in the club? Wenger on one side Ivan and the board on the other, with Silent Stan in the middle somewhere. Oh, I fear this is going to portend a messy near future.

Common Arsene,show Henry you can
With or without Suarez.Turn to Rooney, Lewandowsky,Eto or any other sharp frontman n 4get d shit naa.

Are we buying defenders and midfielders from the confused mugmashers? Fuck them and sign other players. jeeeez

What do you expect from a cigar smoking mogul? The transfer saga had been on for up to 4 weeks, so the submission that there is no time to sign a replacement is nonsense. If they ; Liverpool had played ball, all would have been over 2 weeks past. The club is only after frustrating Suarez thinking he could be cowed. I only foresee this saga becoming counter productive for Liverpool thereby forcing them to even sell him at a cheaper rate come winter transfer window. This Liverpool club surely has neither class nor decency to face the reality. What… Read more »

Exactly!! How dare Henry and the whole Liverpool board not do everything to help out Arsenal? They should take a look at us…a truly last club. We’ve been good enough to support the last two EPL champions, and the Spanish Champions too by giving them our best players. That’s what I call class!!

Higuain would have been well worth 37m. It wouldn’t even matter if he wasn’t top scorer in the league. It’s about intent. Showing your players first of all and then the rest of the world that you’re ambitious and ready to compete with the big boys. A signing like that from Real Madrid would have given us all a boost.

North Bank Gooner

This confuses me a bit if I’m honest. The situation was a well priced deal had been virtually agreed, and then El Presidente longed things out until Napoli got wedged, and upped the price by 10m. If we then coughed up, what ” intent ” would that show? That we are happy to be screwed over, and pay over our valuation by being manipulated into a dutch auction? Smells more of desperation than ambition. Hig was a good, but not great player and a steal at 27m. But proven premiership at 40m was better value than Gonzo at 37m. I… Read more »

Frankly, it would have got us a quality player and a ‘marquee signing’, over the odds but it’ll shut up the people who want big money spent and it would give us cover in a position where we have ONE player I trust to do the job.

I’d happily take Madrid ‘getting one over’ on us and 10m less in the coffers for that.

WengersNoseHair

Well, personally I think Higuain is better than Suarez (thumb me down with glee), but putting that aside, Suarez will cost us more than £40m, perhaps £50m, which leaves us very little to spend elsewhere. Higuain for around £30 gives us £20m more to spend elsewhere. It’s blindingly obvious to me Higuain would have been a better signing.

Ivan le Terrible

He might be a prick but I doubt he would have sanctioned cesc & nasri in the same season. He’s also buying respect with his own fans while we increase the levels of disappointment with our own hierarchy on a daily basis.

What a shit summer ! Really fucking bad.
