Man City ready to make "huge investement" in Luis Suarez

Published 7 Comments

Manchester City have made Luis Suarez their top summer transfer market and believe that a "huge investment" will be enough to lure Liverpool's star striker away from Anfield in time for next season, according to the Sunday Times.

Suarez has been nothing short of sensational for Liverpool this season, scoring 29 goals in 27 Premier League games, but that fantastic form only came after a turbulent summer where the Uruguay forward lodged a very public transfer request.

Liverpool managed to rebuff interest from Arsenal last summer but are set for another fierce fight to keep their best player during the close season, despite Suarez signing a new contract in December which commits his future to the club until 2018.

City's director of football Txiki Begiristain has a strong working relationship with Suarez's agent and is anxious that Sergio Aguero or Edin Dzeko could ask to leave the Etihad this summer, with work started on a swoop for their replacement as a contingency.

Begiristain is confident of making a mega-money move for Suarez and thinks there is a release clause if Suarez's new deal that can pave the way for a shock Premier League switch, although Real Madrid are also believed to be very interested in signing a top-class centre forward ahead of next season.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has held firm in his stance over Suarez ever since taking charge on Merseyside, but this summer promises to be the sternest test of that outlook despite the title contenders almost certainly securing a return to Champions League football.
