The PFA Player of the Year is in high demand.
After winning the PFA Player of the Year award on Sunday Liverpool top-scorer Luis Suarez is now the subject of a £70m bid from Real Madrid, according to the Sun.
The Uruguay international has been in sensational form for the Reds this season and to date has 30 Premier League goals in just 31 appearances and has helped Brendan Rodgers’ side to the top of the table.
This has attracted the interest of Madrid and in particular their president Florentino Perez, who has made Suarez his No.1 transfer priority this summer.
Perez is keen to reinstate a ‘Galacticos’ policy at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, as was shown by the world record £85.3m signing of Gareth Bale last year – interestingly also after winning the PFA Player of the Year award.
Los Blancos want to tie to the deal up before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil starts and whilst Rodgers will resist selling at all costs, the Merseysiders may well be tempted by a £70m offer.
Despite the fact Suarez seems settled at Anfield currently, the 27-year-old did try and engineer a move away last summer and Madrid and Arsenal were both interested then.
In the end the South American stayed and looks happy on Merseyside once more – especially as the club have now secured Champions League football for next campaign for the first time since 2009.
Perez would also be prepared to include either Karim Benzema or Alvaro Morata in the deal which would help soften the blow of losing such a prolific striker.
