If Gareth Bale signs for Real Madrid in record-breaking style, Tottenham could fill the gap with want-away Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
Suarez, who was narrowly beaten to the Premier League Player of the Season award by Bale, has been one of the most sought after players in this year’s transfer window, with clubs such as Arsenal and Real Madrid having expressed an interest.
The Uruguayan striker is threatening to take legal action against Liverpool for breach of contract; a supposed clause is in place, meaning if any club in the Champions League made an offer of more than £40 million, Liverpool must accept.
Tottenham however are not in the Champions League, and therefore would not come under this rule.
Suarez has never been far from controversy, after all, who can forget him being banned for eight matches after racist remarks towards Patrice Evra, or twice banned for biting people.
And now that he has shown how desperate he is to move away, Liverpool should let him go. It’s clear to me that even if they keep him, he will not want to play, never mind play for the jersey. It will also disrupt the harmony of the squad if someone is taking legal action against their own club.
Despite this Suarez was at the training with Liverpool today, but if I was Liverpool I would look to offload Suarez as soon as I could, this is down to his bad attitude and constant controversy.
Whichever route Suarez decides to take, Liverpool will be weaker on the pitch, but more reputable off the pitch.
