Liverpool are reportedly set to keep hold of Luis Suarez following reports linking the striker with a move abroad this summer.
Earlier this week, the Daily Mirror had reported that Liverpool were ready to sell Suarez at the end of the season as a result of him lying to his manager and undermining the club by refusing to shake Manchester United captain Patrice Evra's hand at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Suarez has been linked with several clubs from Italy and Spain since joining Liverpool just over twelve months ago, with Barcelona believed to have shown interest last year.
More recently, Real Madrid and Inter Milan have been linked with the 24-year-old, with reports in Italy and Spain suggesting they could launch bids to lure the forward away from Anfield at the end of the season.
Suarez's representatives are understood to have already sounded out several clubs about a possible move - including Inter and Real - while Juventus also want Suarez as a replacement for veteran striker Alessandro Del Piero, who will leave the club this summer.
But according to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds have no intention of selling the Uruguay international.
A report last month had suggested club owner John Henry would monitor reaction to Suarez when he returned from his recent eight-match suspension, with the American said to fear that the bad publicity around the racism allegations could have a negative impact on future commercial deals.
Henry and Liverpool chairman Tom Werner are set to fly to Merseyside this week in a bid to end the controversies that have damaged the club's name around the world (see below).
