Real Madrid are looking into the very real possibility of bringing Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez to the Bernabeu this summer.
The pair have been in tremendous form for their clubs this season, so much so that they finished first and second in the PFA Player of the Year awards.
If Madrid are to pull off this sensational coup for a reported £120 million combined fee, then surely they will have their most high-profile side since the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo and David Beckham graced the famous white shirts.
With a potentially mouth-watering attacking quartet of Mesut Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Suarez, names alone will put fear into any opposition next season. In recent years surely only Raul, Ronaldo, Zidane and Luis Figo could possibly compete with that.
Bale has been in blistering form this season netting 21 Premier League goals for Tottenham and almost single-handedly providing Spurs with a genuine threat to the top-four, only to miss out on the final day.
The Welshman is widely regarded as the hottest property in the Premier League and in recent comments French legend claimed that: "aside from [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi he is the footballer who impresses me most".
It is suggested that £85 million is in the offing for the playmaker which would make him the most expensive player in history. ‘The Welsh wizard’ is born to play Champions League football and as a result of Spurs’ failure to qualify, he should look for pastures new.
Suarez, not dissimilar to Bale has been a one-man driving force for Liverpool this season, scoring an impressive 30 goals in all competitions, despite being banned for the last four games.
In recent quotes the Uruguayan has declared his desire to leave English football, as he feels subject to a witch-hunt from the British press. Like Tottenham, the Anfield club have expressed their intention to retain their prized-asset, but a £35 million bid might to be too good to resist.
Following Jose Mourinho’s departure, a new manager, thought to be Carlo Ancelotti, may be about to inherit the most fearsome front-lines in Europe. With Barcelona’s acquisition of Brazilian superstar Neymar and German dominance in the Champions League, Madrid President Florentino Perez is looking to re-establish his club as the best team in Europe and the signing of Suarez and Bale may go a long way to ensuring that materialises.
