Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will attempt to leave the club in January, Anfield sources told SportsDirect News.
The Uruguayan, who tried to quit the club during the summer and who was the subject of failed bids from Premier League rivals Arsenal, has apologized for publicly stating his discontent at the club.
However, sources at the Anfield club said Suarez wants to "facilitate an amicable exit" in the new year and apologising to manager Brendan Rodgers and the fans was the best way to do it.
"Scratch beneath the surface and we all know Luis is unhappy at Liverpool - that's not changed overnight," a source said.
"He knows he has to get the fans back on his side if he has a chance of leaving otherwise it will be back to square one. He wants an easy life for the next few months."
Suarez is currently serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic last season.
