Luis Suarez set to sign massive Liverpool FC contract
Liverpool are desperate to ensure Luis Suarez remains at Anfield following a series of spellbinding performances for the Merseyside club this season.

The Uruguayan has been virtually unplayable and rocketed to the top of the Premier League scoring charts thanks to finding the net on seventeen occasions already, with Suarez helping Liverpool claim a 5-0 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
It now appears that the player’s agent is in talks with Liverpool over a new deal which will easily make him the best-paid player at the club, with Brendan Rodgers keen to make sure that the forward’s head isn’t turned by big clubs such as Real Madrid.
While Suarez has two and a half years left on his contract, club owners Fenway Sports Group realise the importance of securing the player on a long-term basis, with the striker admitting that the fans’ forgiveness has allowed him to find his best form this term.
He said: “After so many difficult moments for me I was able to win the supporters back, and that was unbelievable when I came back to play. They helped me, and that was important for me, for my confidence, and for my family, because they are together with me in this. It’s very special for me (the award) because my hard work on the pitch is recognised. Everybody knows about my problems and my difficult year, but after that I forgot everything and have been able to get back on the pitch.
“Liverpool are starting to reach their potential and we can play our best on the pitch. It’s very important that we stay together, we keep going, this is very important. If Liverpool don’t have these players I cannot continue my level, because it’s too much. They know I am important, so they try everything to stay together, that’s important for me, but it’s more important for the club.”
It appears that a new deal could see Suarez earn over £130,000 per week, with managing director Ian Ayre having met with agent Pere Guardiola in a bid to tie down the 26-year-old.
