Liverpool fans can now empathise with Manchester United counterparts when it comes to star players being courted by Real Madrid. Until some sort of definitive statement or decision is made, there will be a daily dose of Luis Suárez stories and today is no exception.

After his complaints about receiving criticism for racially abusing one defender and biting another yesterday, with a dash of a "come and get me" plea, today Suárez has no plans to leave Merseyside, say Sky Sports. That doesn't mean plans can change, though, and yesterday Marca claimed Madrid and the Reds had struck a £40 million deal for the Uruguayan forward.

Marca, as Madrid's unofficial mouthpiece, seem to confirm deals on a daily basis when essentially they're merely championing a player for Real. The Mirror add that the Champions League semi-finalists are willing to offer José Callejón as part of the deal while Suárez would earn £140,000 a week in Spain.

Should I stay or should I go?

From one object of Marca's affections to another: Gareth Bale. A man who has signed a contract in all but one year of his Tottenham career, André Villas-Boas is imploring Spurs' miserly chairman Daniel Levy to offer the footballer of the year a new deal to prolong the stay of execution, say the Sun.

In a bid to fund this package, Tottenham intend to sell David Bentley, William Gallas, Emmanuel Adebayor, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Jake Livermore, Tom Huddlestone and Heurelho Gomes, write the Mail. Daniel Levy should be able to get roughly £100m for all seven of those who've been spendin' most their lives livin' in Gareth's paradise.

Remember me?

Carlos Tévez, who has a year remaining on his Manchester City contract, will have talks about his Eastlands future next week, according to the Times. He will be about as Shameless.

The Times maintain José Mourinho wants to sell Chelsea defender David Luíz while the Sun suggest Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala, 22, may become the first signing of the second coming of José at the Bridge.

Some conjecture about Cesc Fàbregas today, who's interesting Manchesters United and City. Sky Sports say he will be staying at Barcelona while the Mirror claim he is yet to decide his future after two seasons at Camp Nou, with Arsenal naturally keen on re-signing him.

Saint Etienne's French defender Kurt Zouma, 18, has sold his soul early as he prepares to move to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala despite plenty of suitors in the Premier League.

Kicker are unsurprisingly touting a couple of clubs for Bayern Munich's unwanted striker Mario Gómez, whose role will be even more marginal should Robert Lewandowski arrive at the Allianz along with Mario Götze.

Napoli and Fiorentina, who could both lose star strikers Edinson Cavani and Stevan Jovetić, are linked with the German.

Fulham signed one excellent Dutch goalkeeper in Edwin van der Sar 12 years ago and are supposedly on the verge of bringing another to Craven Cottage. Holland international Maarten Stekelenburg, 30, is about to arrive in a £3m deal from Roma, allege the Mail.

Mark Schwarzer signed a one-year extension earlier this year but, at 40, is not always guaranteed to be the most nimble of custodians.

And El Mundo report that Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski will remain with the club next season, according to coach Jürgen Klopp.
