Liverpool star Luis Suarez could be set to depart Anfield in the near future, with reports claiming that the striker has been offered to Real Madrid.
Uruguayan international Suarez joined the Merseyside outfit from Eredivisie giants Ajax back in 2011 and has developed somewhat of a mixed reputation in the Premier League.
While he is undeniably a gifted player and arguably the English top-flight's best striker, 26-year-old Suarez has also courted a large share of unwanted controversy.
Following his most recent misdemeanour - a shocking bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in April for which he incurred a 10-match ban - Suarez appeared set to leave Liverpool after citing a desire to play in the Champions League.
Such a desire led to much interest in the striker, with Real Madrid and Premier League rivals Arsenal both reportedly interested in securing his signature but ultimately unable to complete any deal.
However, it appears as if an undeterred Real Madrid could be set to re-ignite that interest in the Liverpool star.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Real have been offered Suarez - a player who is supposedly top of Carlo Ancelotti's list of transfer targets.
Furthermore, the same publication also claims that Real had a verbal agreement with an agent to sign Suarez during the summer and discussed a fee of approximately €45 million but saw the deal scuppered after failing to raise he necessary funds after the world-record addition of Gareth Bale.
Liverpool are presumably unlikely to want to sell Suarez, given that the striker has been in superb form of late with eight goals in six games since returning from his ban.
