Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that there can be “no solution” to the clubs dispute with Luis Suarez as long as the striker refuses to apologise, Sky Sports understands.
The Reds boss believes that the Uruguay international has shown “total disrespect” to the Merseyside club by attempting to force through a move to Arsenal.
The 26 year old is currently away on international duty, and will miss the opening six domestic games of the season, regardless of who he is playing for, as he completes a ten-match suspension for biting an opponent.
Meanwhile, Daniel Agger is unlikely to use the same tactics as Suarez following continuous reports linking the defender with a move to Barcelona, according to the Mirror.
The Catalan club are keen to strengthen their back-line ahead of their title defence, and have identified the Denmark international as one of their key targets.
Elsewhere, Stewart Downing is expected to complete his move to West Ham United in the next 24 hours, according to the Mail Online.
The 28 year old has made ninety-one appearances for the Reds since signing from Aston Villa for £20 two years ago, but is likely to be sold for under a third of that figure.
