Luis Suarez, arguably the best striker in the world based on current performances, has just signed a bumper deal with Liverpool to keep him at the club for the next 4.5 years.
Suarez will now be earning £200,000 per week, so more than £12 million per year. This deal is likely to put off the attention of European giants Real Madrid and Barcelona who would have undoubtedly been monitoring Suarez’s contract situation with close interest.
The 26 year old Uruguay international stated:
I believe I can achieve the ambitions of winning trophies and playing at the very highest level with Liverpool. My aim is to help get us there as quickly as possible.
Great news for Reds fans, and for the Premier League as a whole. He may not be the most likeable guy, but he sure knows how to play football.
