Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has agreed a deal with Manchester City sporting director Txiki Beriguistain that will see the feared marksman made a shock summer switch to Eastlands, according to Spanish publication Marca.
Suarez has been nothing short of sensational for Liverpool this season, overcoming a turbulent summer which featured a very public transfer request and a formal £40,000,001 offer from Arsenal to become firmly established as the Premier League's leading goalscorer.
The 27-year-old missed the first two months of the campaign through suspension but still has a stunning haul of 25 goals in 24 Premier League games, a total which Marca believe has persuaded City to pursue a stunning transfer coup.
Marca believe that City chief Beriguistain has made contact with Suarez's representatives and tentatively reached an agreement to sign the Uruguayan predator at the end of the season.
Liverpool are no strangers to speculation surrounding their star forward and will likely shrug off rumours from the Spanish press, but City do have the finances and silverware to match Suarez's stated ambition to be a consistent Champions League contender.
Barring a late-season collapse Liverpool will return to the Champions League next term, which will leave Reds boss Brendan Rodgers extremely confident of keeping a player who is now under contract at Anfield until 2018 despite these latest shock reports from the continent.
