The Liverpool hit-man could get his desired move.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is back on Real Madrid’s radar as Arsenal’s continued pursuit of the South American is apparently going nowhere, reports the Sunday Times.
The Spanish giants had gone quiet in the Suarez affair as the La Liga club continued their mission to try and lure Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale to the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, with Spurs playing hard ball over Bale, Madrid are beginning to worry they may start the season a little light up-front.
The sale of both Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon to Napoli has left Los Blancos with two less forwards on the books and although Isco has been brought in as support on the wing, no out-and-out striker has been purchased.
Therefore Suarez is increasingly looking like the perfect signing for the club, with the 26-year-old wanting a transfer from Anfield – preferably to Spain.
There’s no doubting the attacker’s talent – although the Uruguayan’s temperament and attitude is sometimes questionable – and there’s no reason to believe the forward wouldn’t be a hit at the Bernabeu.
Suarez wants to leave Merseyside after two-and-a-half years due to the Reds’ continued lack of Champions League football, but the club are reluctant to sell the Uruguay international to Arsenal as the north London club are a Premier League rival.
Whilst in an ideal world manager Brendan Rodgers wouldn’t want to see the striker leave under any circumstances, Liverpool are realistic enough to realise that an unhappy player is nothing but poisonous to the squad and the club are set to make a tidy profit on the £23m they paid for Suarez in 2011.
