Agents: Suarez Stays; Papa Is A No-Go

Liverpool fans are on a roller-coaster ride already, and the transfer season has not even started properly yet.

The high of nabbing Kolo Toure and Iago Aspas was soon cut short by quotes from Luis Suarez, suggesting he is open to the idea of moving to Real Madrid.

Now comes word from the striker’s agent however, clarifying that Suarez remains happy at Anfield, and will not try to force a move to Spain.

"He is fine at Liverpool but recent times have been tough for him. There is nothing more in it," agent Pere Guardiola added in The Independent.

But before the Reds faithful settle into contentment yet again, another story has emerged to break their hearts.

With Jamie Carragher having retired, Liverpool are hunting for a new top-quality central defender.

Speculation has been mounting that they are close to signing 21-year-old Greek international stopper, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, who plays for Bundesliga side Schalke.

Papadopoulos is widely regarded as one of the best up-and-coming defenders in European club football, and Reds fans have been salivating at the prospect of his athleticism and (barely) controlled aggression alongside cultured Dane, Daniel Agger.

But the Greek hard-man’s agent says there is no truth he will sign for Liverpool or any other suitor, and will remain instead at the Veltins Arena.

"I can tell you we have no interest in a transfer away from Schalke at this point in time," agent Paul Koutsoliakos told Bild.

"Kyriakos is happy being at this club.

"Kyriakos is fully focused on being fit when Schalke start pre-season training in the next few months. He looks likely to be ready for it."
