Real Madrid could be set to make a move for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez as the Spanish giants are reportedly preparing an enormous bid for the Uruguayan, according to reports.
Suarez is seen by Real Madrid as an upgrade on current number one striker Karim Benzema. Benzema scored 24 goals, supplied 14 assists in 51 appearances for Madrid last season but the Spanish club expected more.
Unlike Benzema, Suarez exceeded all expectations last season. Despite missing the first five games of the season due to suspension, Suarez scored 31 goals and provided 13 assists in only 37 appearances for Liverpool.
Suarez has also somewhat improved his public image which would appeal more to the Madrid hierarchy. In previous seasons Suarez has been charged for biting opponents and the racist incident with Patrice Evra. However, the Uruguayan has yet to lose his image as a diver with him still receiving six yellow cards last season.
Despite Suarez claiming he wants to stay at Liverpool, the attraction of moving to Real Madrid may be too much for him to stay at Merseyside. Much like Gareth Bale leaving Tottenham Hotspur, the same could happen to Liverpool with Suarez.
Suarez release clause is believed to be 70 million pounds and with the sale of Benzema, Madrid could raise enough cash to land the Uruguayan forward.
Suarez has now become one of the best players in the world. His speed, agility, high work rate, versatility, technical and aerial ability and his clinical finishing could take Real Madrid up another level.
Suarez can be the marquee signing that the Real Madrid fans crave. Liverpool should brace themselves for an enormous bid with Madrid always eager to land any player they want and satisfy there fans.
