Luis Suárez has pulled out of Liverpool's Scandinavian friendly with Vålerenga to join fellow wantaways Wayne Rooney and Gareth Bale on the sidelines.

Suárez, the only Liverpool player who did not attend Steven Gerrard's post-testimonial dinner on Saturday, is out of Wednesday's match with a foot injury, as he continues to pine for a move away from Anfield.

Manchester United boasted 10 days ago Rooney would be "back" for their friendly with AIK this evening, but yesterday confirmed a shoulder injury had ruled him out of the trip.

The news came on the same day it emerged the club had rejected a Chelsea bid of £25 million plus add-ons for Rooney, who could submit a transfer request this week.

While Rooney is "angry and confused" with United, Gareth Bale is "unhappy and disappointed" with Tottenham.

Bale, 24, wants to leave White Hart Lane for Real Madrid, who had an £83.6m offer rejected by Spurs 10 days ago.

Player of the year Bale has signed a contract in all but one year since he arrived in north London in 2007, and his latest deal runs until 2016.

The Welshman, nursing a "slight injury", did not travel to the south of France last week for the Lilywhites' 5-2 defeat to Monaco.

Suárez also inked a new long-term deal last year in what also effectively signalled a stay of execution. Arsenal have tabled two bids for the 26-year-old Uruguayan, only for Liverpool to snub both of them.

Rooney, who asked to leave United in 2010, did a hasty U-turn three years ago and signed a contract until 2015.
