Luis Suarez transfer would have nothing to do with Ancelotti

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, reportedly wanted by Manchester United, will have little say on the matter if the club decide to pursue Liverpool striker Luis Suarez this summer, according to Terry Gibson.

Suarez has been linked with a £70 million transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu having been in irresistible goalscoring form for Liverpool this season, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez ready to spend big once again.

The Uruguay international has scored 30 goals for Liverpool in the Premier League and could yet bring the title to Anfield, and Perez has clearly been impressed by what he has seen from Suarez over the course of the campaign.

Perez sanctioned a world record move for Gareth Bale last year and, 12 months on, it would appear he is unlikely to tighten the Real Madrid purse strings. Given the vast attacking options already available to Ancelotti, it would not seem imperative that the club move to secure the acquisition of Suarez.

But, according to Gibson, whether Ancelotti wants Suarez or not may be irrelevant if Perez really is set on bringing the player from Liverpool to Madrid in the summer.

“Suarez is obviously good enough to play for them, it’s just whether Carlo Ancelotti has any decision about who he wants to bring in,” Gibson, a former Manchester United player and now an expert on Spanish football, said in an interview with talkSPORT.

“I’m not sure they need another striker but that definitely wouldn’t stop Florentino Perez buying one, despite what Ancelotti thinks.”

Ancelotti, meanwhile, continues to be linked with Manchester United despite the club having talks with Louis van Gaal over a move to Old Trafford. It is reported that Van Gaal’s request to bring numerous backroom staff with him is holding up a proposed deal, which in turn has left the door open for a Carlo Ancelotti move to Manchester United.
