Betting Special: Suarez could be set for summer departure

The 26-year-old Uruguayan striker’s future at Liverpool appears to be uncertain and Willie Duncan believes that the former Ajax man may opt to leave Anfield this summer

Liverpool proved that they can perform without Luis Suarez as the Reds romped to a hugely impressive 6-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday and speculation regarding the future of the Uruguayan striker continues to mount.

The Reds will be without the striker for the final three matches of this campaign and Suarez will also sit out of the opening six matches of next season following his 10-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic and
Paddy Power has opened a market on whether, following this latest indiscretion, the 26-year-old forward will ever play for Liverpool again.

The Irish firm go just 8/15 (1.53) that Suarez resumes his Liverpool career next term while the same firm offer 11/8 (2.38) that the match against Chelsea at Anfield proves to be his final appearance for the Merseyside club.

Should the controversial Uruguayan move on in the summer, Paddy Power go 5/2 (3.50) that Champions League finalists Bayern Munich add the striker to their impressive squad.

Suarez’s agent is Pere Guardiola, younger brother of Pep, who will take over the reins at the Allianz Arena from Jupp Heynckes this summer, and the family connection may prove pivotal should the former Barcelona manager wish to bring the striker to Bayern.

Paddy Power go 9/2 (5.50) that Suarez remains in England by moving to Manchester City. The prospect of such a move would certainly be enhanced should weekend speculation linking Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to the hotseat at Etihad Stadium prove to be true.

However, given that Suarez is reported to be unhappy at what he perceives as unfair treatment from the FA, a move to another English club would surely carry little appeal for the 26-year-old striker.

If Suarez does depart English football, a move to Spain is a possibility offering 6/1 (7.0) that the striker’s next permanent move is to Real Madrid while the same firm go 7/1 (8.0) that the Uruguayan moves to Barcelona.

Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain are also rated as a 7/1 (8.0) chance to snap up Suarez, who could form an explosive partnership with Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic should he sign for the French outfit, while a move to Serie A champions Juventus is chalked up as a 12/1 (13.0) shot .

With Suarez’s future uncertain, a move to Bayern Munich appeals at a juicy 5/2 (3.50) but the 11/8 (2.38) quote from the same firm for Suarez to depart Anfield before serving his suspension is a solid selection and should be snapped up accordingly by punters.
