Frank De Boer Expects Higher Offer From Liverpool for Luis Suarez, Will Reinsert Striker Into Lineup If No Deal Is Made

Frank De Boer is playing hardball.

The Ajax boss reiterated to Goal.com that a midnight deadline is in place for negotiations for striker Luis Suarez, and he said he expects a much bigger offer.

"I expect [Liverpool] to come with a higher offer," De Boer said, according to the website. He added that he believes the chances of Suarez leaving are 50-50.

Suarez has been sitting out amid the extended transfer saga, but De Boer expressed confidence that the Uruguayan striker will return to the club with full motivation if a deal with Liverpool is not made.

"I am also confident that he will give everything for Ajax if the transfer falls through," De Boer told the website. "Luis is a passionate player who always plays to win."
