I kind of agree with you both, and I have to commend Armchair for writing a post with structure and logic involved! :)
The manager doesnt want him, it could not be clearer, there is obviously someone else he fancies that will suit his plan, thats fair enough, it isnt his (or Andys) fault that LFC had spent £35m on him. I think its a mistake to let him go but if you arent going to give your gaffer the full backing then you have got the wrong man in charge already!
I think he could do an Ibrahimovic role as the central striker and that Suarez could play LF or RF. There is clearly a price tag they have come up with as acceptable and that doesnt appear to have been reached yet.
