Los Blancos are not keen on forking out £40m for Uruguay marksman.
Real Madrid are said to be increasingly confident of signing want-away Liverpool front man Luis Suarez this summer now that the Spanish giants have finally announced Carlo Ancelotti as their new head coach, reports the Daily Star.
The experienced Italian took over from Jose Mourinho in the Santiago Bernabeu hot seat on Tuesday, and the former Parma, Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain boss is understood to have told his new employers to push through a move for the Uruguay international with immediate effect.
As yet, los Blancos have been reluctant to open negotiations with the Reds owing to the fact that they were still to finalise a deal with PSG to secure Ancelotti’s services, however, now that that hurdle has been overcome the Spanish giants are set to push ahead with their £40 million move for the coveted Uruguay international.
And the Liga outfit are even said to be increasingly confident of bringing the prolific attacker, who registered an impressive 51 goals and 24 assists in just 96 appearances since joining Liverpool in Jan 2011, to the Spanish capital this summer for less than than the Merseysiders’ asking price, but only if Suarez hands in a written transfer request that is.
