Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has made Liverpool striker Luis Suarez his top summer transfer target and believes a bid an offer of £70m will activate a get-out clause in his new contract, according to The Sun.
Liverpool fans are no stranger to speculation surrounding their talisman, but managed to come through last summer's transfer request and controversial £40,000,001m offer from Arsenal unscathed.
Suarez has since banished memories of unrest to spearhead a sensational campaign at Anfield, scoring 30 Premier League goals, but that magnificent form has got Madrid lurking ominously as they weigh up a massive summer offer.
Madrid president Perez rarely takes no for an answer and launched a similar raid on the Premier League for Gareth Bale last summer, with a Madrid source telling the Sun that Los Blancos are desperate to partner the Uruguay marksman alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in a trio of attacking terror next season.
Perez has also not ruled out the idea of attempting to persuade Liverpool the time is right to cash in on Suarez by using either Karim Benzema or promising youngster Alvaro Morata as bait to force through a deal.
The Reds are in a very strong position to rebuff bids for one of Europe's in-form players though, with the 27-year-old under contract until 2018 after signing a new contract earlier in the campaign.
Liverpool also have Champions League football to offer next season, something that Suarez cited as the driving force behind his desire to leave Merseyside last summer.
