Luis Suarez is worth as much as Gareth Bale, argues Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Luis Suarez is worth as much as Gareth Bale.

Real Madrid are set to break the world transfer record once more with a deal worth in excess of £100million for Tottenham winger Bale while the Reds remain resolute in their stance on Suarez, who was the subject of a £40million plus £1 bid from Arsenal late last month.

And Rodgers insists that Suarez, who is banned for the first six games of the new season, carries a similar value to Bale given their respective influences on the Premier League last term.

He said: "It's not even something we're thinking about to be honest. I was on the phone for a while last night again with the owners and they know what we're trying to do. We're trying to build the group up and we're in no hurry to sell Luis or any other player.

"Of course throughout the world every player will have a value and worth but you only need to look at the market and £40million and one pound...Gareth Bale, they're talking about nine figures.

"Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez were the two arguably best players in the Premier League last year, so you can't say that Gareth Bale is supposedly valued at over 100% more [than Luis].

"We as a club are very strong on what we're doing and our believe in what we're doing. There'll be no one moving out of here."
