Real Madrid are set to offer Liverpool an impressive bid of £30million plus the services of Alvaro Morata for Luis Suarez this summer, according to reports.
Metro this morning carries a story claiming that the Reds will receive the proposal for their star striker as both Madrid and Barcelona have made him their priority target this summer. On the back of his truly remarkable season at Anfield Suarez has attracted the attentions of the biggest clubs in the world, and it now looks as though Brendan Rodgers will be lucky to keep him past this transfer window.
It’s believed that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez, who has never been one to rest on his laurels with regards to conducting mega-deals, has become alarmed at recent reports suggesting fierce rivals Barcelona are in the process of offering a £51million deal of their own, and so has rushed through a proposal which includes Arsenal target Morata. According to Metro Madrid think the £30million-plus-player offer will be enough for Liverpool to consider selling their prized asset, and that the feasibility of the switch happening could come down to whether or not Suarez wants to move himself.

- Alvaro Morata discount available to Arsenal
- Marcos Rojo emerges as Liverpool transfer target
Contrasting reports today claim that Suarez would love to play for Barcelona at some stage in his career, which may well give Luis Enrique the edge over Carlo Ancelotti in the fight for his services. The Catalan giants are now looking to rebuild their squad after last term’s trophy-less campaign, and the idea of playing in between Lionel Messi and Neymar may well appeal to the Uruguayan hit-man as he searches for success.
There’s no doubt that Rodgers could be attracted by the idea of landing the Madrid youngster, though it remains to be seen whether the inclusion will convince the Northern Irishman to part with his best player. Morata’s potential has been lauded over the past year or so and as such Arsenal have been mentioned strongly amongst the list of his admirers. At the age of 21 there’s plenty of time for the Spaniard to blossom into a world-class forward, though the idea of him replicating Suarez’s feats last season is practically farcical.
