Luis Suarez's lawyer backs Real Madrid move

Luis Suarez's lawyer Alejandro Balbi has admitted that any offer made to the player by Real Madrid would be hard to turn to down, according to the Daily Express.

The Uruguay and Liverpool striker will be the hottest property on the transfer market this summer after his 31-goal season, and despite a second place finish in the Premier League and the promise of Champions League football at the club next season, his future is still unclear and an exit from Anfield is a real possibility. 

Balbi told Radio Statido Cadena Ser: "When there is an offer from a big club like Real Madrid it is difficult to say no. They are one of the most important teams in the world.

"Last season, I was at the Santiago Bernabeu watching the Champions League game between Real Madrid and Juventus and I told to my Real Madrid friends: "You made a mistake by signing Bale, you needed to buy Suarez instead."

"I am answering you more like a friend than as his lawyer. A year ago, I would have said it was very likely he would leave Liverpool but now I really see it as very difficult unless there is a very lucrative offer, Liverpool let him go and he likes the new club."

"He is currently a Liverpool idol and has gone into the history of a legendary team like Liverpool. And beyond that, he always wants to improve."

Arsenal made a £40million bid for the striker during the course of last season, but after spending their transfer budget of the signing Mesut Ozil in January, it is unlikely that they will come in for the player once again. 

"I believe his exit is difficult unless some great European club like Barcelona, Madrid or another big English team are interested.

"He is happy at Liverpool, even though they failed to win the Premier League they will play Champions League next season and he has won the Golden Boot (Europe's joint top scorer with Cristiano Ronaldo)."

Suarez, who will get the chance to light up the world stage this summer at the WC finals in Brazil, could see the opportunity to link-up with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale too hard to resist. 

"I have no doubt that if Luis goes to Real Madrid he would be an idol there and he will immediately identify with the fans. And also with the idiosyncrasies of Real Madrid.

"But today I believe he's just thinking of Uruguay, the World Cup and about playing the next season's Champions League with Liverpool.

"When the World Cup is over, he and his agent will have to meet with Real Madrid officials if they are really interested in his services."

With Liverpool set to add England striker Rickie Lambert to their squad next week, his capture is sure to be seen as an addition to the Anfield side and not a replacement for a potentially departing Suarez. 

Real broke the world transfer record last summer when they captured Bale from Tottenham, and would have spend an amount near to that once again if they are to tempt Liverpool from releasing their prize asset.
