Uruguay forward Luis Suarez still hopes to reach a “friendly” resolution with Liverpool, despite angering manager Brendan Rodgers last week after going public with his belief that the club breached his contract by refusing to sell him.
The controversial striker, who has been forced to train alone ahead of the new season, claims that a release clause written into his contract allowed him to leave if Liverpool failed to reach this year’s Champions League.
Suarez scored 29 goals for Liverpool last season as the club finished seventh in the Premier League, 28 points behind champions Manchester United.
