Real Madrid offered Luis Suarez - but they want Sergio Aguero

Real Madrid have been told by the agent of Luis Suarez, Pere Guardiola, that his client wants to move to the Bernabeu in the summer, reports El Confidencial.

Suarez signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool at the end of last year, reportedly increasing his wages to around £200,000-a-week and raising his release clause to £75 million.

Despite insisting he is happy at Anfield and will have Champions League football to look forward to next season, Suarez is still keen to join the La Liga giants. His agent has contacted Real Madrid officials twice to notify them of Suarez's desire.

Losing Suarez would be a huge blow to Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool, whose 30 goals have lifted the Reds to within touching distance of their first Premier League title.

However, they may not have to worry about Suarez wanting to join Real Madrid because, according to the Spanish broadsheet, Real Madrid may not want Suarez.

Although Real Madrid want to sign a star striker this summer, Florentino Perez is more keen on signing Sergio Aguero from Manchester City instead and will only start listening to Suarez's pleas if he fails to sign the Argentinean.

So far Manchester City have refused to entertain interest in their striker, who has spent a large part of the last two seasons out injured.

Even if Manchester City do agree to sell Aguero, Real Madrid will have to convince the striker, who has a hero status at Atletico Madrid, to join a club he once rivalled fiercely.

Real Madrid believe the sale of Karim Benzema could generate enough funds to make a move for either Liverpool's Suarez or Aguero but won't make a firm decision on who until the season ends.

Aguero remains a long-term target for the Real Madrid president but the form from Suarez, coupled with his desire to play at the Bernabeu, could entice Perez to meeting his release clause.
