Luis Suarez’s bitter transfer saga descended into farce yesterday when the Liverpool striker was quoted in a Uruguayan newspaper declaring he would stay at Anfield, only to then deny saying anything of the kind.

It seemed Suarez had performed a remarkable U-turn when he was quoted in El Observador as saying: ‘For now, owing to all the affection of the people, I would be staying.’

But after Uruguay’s 4-2 friendly win in Japan yesterday, in which Suarez scored, the striker is reported to have replied: ‘I didn’t say that. Maybe someone else did and the main thing is that I am here now with the national team.’

Although Suarez has made no secret of his desire to leave Anfield this summer, Liverpool have rejected two offers from Arsenal for the  26-year-old while insisting he is not for sale.

Suarez’s reported quotes to El Observador were:  ‘For now, due to all of the people’s affection (for me), I will be staying.’

Uruguayan journalist Martin Chaquero also claimed he had been told Liverpool will keep their star man.

‘Luis Suarez confirms to me he will not leave Liverpool. The support of the fans has influenced his decision,’ Chaquero said.

‘Suarez see it as likely that he’ll sign a renewal (extension) to the contract that binds him to Liverpool.’

Chaquero later tweeted: ‘Sources close to Luis Suarez have confirmed his decision to stay at Liverpool.’
