Suarez has declared that he wants to leave Liverpool after another controversial season which saw the striker score many goals before receiving a ten-match ban for biting opponent Branislav Ivanovic during a match against Chelsea.
Real Madrid and Arsenal both appear keen to lure the player away from Anfield, although his current manager claims that it would take a huge bid to release Suarez from the Merseyside club, with Rodgers expecting to start the season with the star forward in his squad.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference in Jakarta on Thursday, Rodgers said: “Luis Suárez is a wonderful player and he is still very much a Liverpool player. No matter who the player is, nobody is bigger than Liverpool Football Club.
“Luis is a very important member of this squad and I am looking forward to working with him again this season after he had such a fantastic season. There has been lots of speculation about Luis moving to another club but, as I said, he is very much a Liverpool player. We had an offer that was nowhere near what we value him at. He’s one of the top strikers in the world.
“Of course he wants to work and play at the top level. But unless something drastic happens, he will be staying here. He has got three years left on his contract. We are looking forward to him helping us get into the Champions League spots”.
