Luis Suarez still a target for El Classico duo

Published Add your comment

The ink is still fresh on Luis Suarez's new contract at Liverpool but it won't stop speculation on the striker's future as Barcelona and Real Madrid remain interested, according to the Daily Star.

Suarez's four-and-a-half year deal makes him the highest paid player in the Anfield club's history with a reported weekly wage of around £180,000.

However the deal is expected to include an exit clause that will mean if either Barcelona or Real Madrid express a desire to sign the forward, then a deal can be negotiated.

Agents from Madrid have already been in touch whilst the Catalans could appoint Guus Hiddink as manager next summer, an admirer of the former Ajax man.

Last summertime was a difficult enough for the Uruguayan and his club, and there could be a similar scenario in 2014. The 26-year-old was forced to train on his own by manager Brendan Rodgers for his vocal attempts to leave Merseyside in the face of interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal.

However, upon his return from a lengthy ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, the striker has been in great form.

A brace in yesterday's 3-1 over Cardiff City took Suarez's tally for the season to 19 goals from 13 Premier League games as he continues to top the division's goal-scoring charts.

A first Premier League title win for Liverpool is likely to keep Suarez at the club with Champions League qualification the bare minimum, and Rodgers' side have made a good start and currently top the division.
