Liverpool insist they have no plans to sell striker Luis Suarez.

The Mirror reported on Sunday that they were prepared to let him leave during the January transfer window after he had "confided in friends that he remains determined to quit".

Arsenal had two bids for Suarez turned down and The Mirror claimed that he would reject a move to the Gunners and instead opt for a move to Real Madrid - provided the La Liga giants decide to make a move.

However, BT Sport quotes an Anfield source as saying Liverpool will not sell Suarez.

"There could be no new contractual arrangement with Suarez once the season got underway and he was in dispute with the club, trying to push through a move.

"However, that has all changed now and the club have made it clear that Suarez has three years left on his contract - well, just under now - and to be fair to the player he has shown his commitment on the field.

"What happens next largely depends on the club and player sitting down to discuss his future in the summer when he has two years remaining on his contract, and it is traditional at that stage for clubs and players to want to re-negotiate contracts.

"We shall all see how it unfolds in the summer when those talks take place. In the meantime, the manager has stated that Suarez will be treated the same as every other player under contract."
