Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has dismissed suggestions Luis Suarez will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Suarez wanted out of Anfield in the summer as both Arsenal and Real Madrid chased his signature but Liverpool rejected bids of over £40million.
However, reports have surfaced suggesting Suarez agreed to stay for one more season on the proviso he could leave at the end of the campaign if they failed to make the top four.
Liverpool are on course to qualify for the Champions League following an impressive start to the season, but Rodgers has moved quickly to deny rumours that such an agreement is in place.
“There never was that before and there never was that this summer,” Rodgers revealed. “I didn’t sit in on the conversations but as I understand it there is no agreement of any kind.
“The contract was what it was. We want him to stay and with his contract running for two-and-a-half years, I am sure there will be something between now and the end of the season to keep him here.
“There will be a number of dependencies on that but the most important thing is that the player is happy.”
Suarez has bagged 13 goals in nine games since returning from a 10-match ban and currently tops the Premier League goal-scoring charts.
