Luis Suarez will leave Liverpool this summer for one of Europe's top clubs, according to the Daily Star, who cite reports from Spain.
The Uruguayan striker has been in sensational form for the Reds this season, scoring 28 goals in the Premier League and forming one of the deadliest partnerships England has ever seen with Daniel Sturridge.
Between the two strikers, 48 goals have been scored, forming the foundations for Liverpool's title challenge as they look to end a 24-year barren spell to become champions of English football.
Liverpool looked set to establish themselves at the upper echelons of football for the foreseeable future after tying Suarez down to a new contract earlier this season, keeping him at the club until 2017. The deal £200,000-a-week deal was seen as a major victory for Brendan Rodgers, who resisted the player's requests to move to Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
However, according to the Daily Star, who quote Spanish paper Marca, Suarez will leave Anfield this summer for one of Europe's major powers even if Liverpool manage to qualify for the Champions League. One small consolation for Liverpool fans is that Suarez will at least be moving abroad.
Not only is a move to the continent on the cards, but the report also claims that the striker has already decided on his next destination with Real Madrid thought to be the most likely destination.
Barcelona have also been accredited with an interest in the past while it was also revealed that interest from Italy surfaced in 2012, but Suarez rejected the move.
Liverpool will most likely command an excessive transfer fee for Suarez and can expect to triple their original £22m outlay. His new contract reportedly has a £70m release clause embedded into it and a club like Real Madrid are in a good position to match that this summer.
