The Spanish giants Real Madrid have made the Uruguay and Liverpool striker their top most marquee target for either January or June and will play all the tactics they are famous for in order to bring in-form striker to Santiago Bernebeau.
English newspaper Evening Standard have reported that Real Madrid are confident of signing Luis Suarez next summer and are prepared to spend up to €54 million (£45m) for the Uruguay international.
Liverpool will also be tempted to part ways Luis Suarez if they get the right amount for number 7. However, Reds’ management believes Suarez is on same level of Gareth Bale, who joined Los Blancos for 100 million euros during last summer and will expect the bid from Madrid at very high premium.
The North England based side rejected a £40m-plus-£1 bid from Gunners for their star man in last July and Merseysiders would immediately reject a fresh bid to lure him from any Premier League club they regard as rivals.
However, a transfer to a club as big and as prestigious as Real would be regarded as happily acceptable to both Liverpool and Suarez as the later will not get any better opportunity than this considering that he is turning 27 in January.
Suarez is having an excellent start to the season. After returning from the 10 match suspension, Suárez made his first EPL appearance of the season on 29 September, scoring twice as Liverpool beat Sunderland 3–1 at the Stadium of Light. On 5 October, Suárez made his first appearance of the season at Anfield, where he scored Liverpool’s opening goal in a 3–1 win against Crystal Palace.
On 26 October, he was back at his best as he scored his fourth Premier League hat-trick, his first at Anfield, in a 4–1 hammering of West Bromwich Albion. Luis Suarez has scored hatrick every 20.3 Premier League games which is the best rate of all 46 players to have scored more than one treble in the EPL.
In his last match also, he was unplayable in the first half as he scored a quite brilliant hat-trick. Never stopped running and looked to get others involved whenever possible. Suárez scored four goals against Norwich in a 5–1 home win. He also became the first player ever in Premier League to score three hat-tricks against the same side.
Los Blancos will no doubt try to lure the Striker in the winter transfer window. The only concerning area of the of Spanish powerhouse’s squad at the moment is their Forward line. The only senior striker currently on Real’s books, following the sale of Gonzalo Higuain to SSC Napoli in summer, is Karim Benzema. Suarez is of course, available to play in the Champions League knockout stages in the new year as Liverpool are not playing in either Europa League or Champions League; although the probability relics that they are more likely to acquire him in the summer.
Suarez it seems is also interested in a move to the record 9 time Champions League winners as he went public with his desire to move to the Bernabeu last summer and is likely to have his head turned by strong interest from the club.
