Liverpool could sign Pedro or Sanchez in Suarez deal

Liverpool can choose between Alexis Sanchez and Pedro if they agree to sell Luis Suarez to Barcelona this summer.

According to El Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are willing to offer €40m plus Sanchez to seal a deal for the Liverpool striker, but would consider including Pedro as part of the deal if the Reds prefer.


Barcelona are set for a summer of upheaval, with Victor Valdes and Carles Puyol departing and Xavi Hernandez also linked with a move away from the Nou Camp. Cesc Fabregas has signed for Chelsea, and Sanchez and Pedro are continually mentioned as targets for Premier League suitors.

Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked with both Pedro and Sanchez, who is currently starring for an impressive Chile team at the World Cup in Brazil.

The young winger has been a long-term target for Brendan Rodgers as he looks to add to his squad ahead of a Champions League campaign next season. Although he seems to have been around forever, 26-year-old Pedro is just one year older than Sanchez but he's been at Barcelona his entire professional career.

Still, the Catalans are reportedly willing to give one of them up, plus potentially €40m, to sign Suarez.


After a stunning Premier League season for Liverpool, the Uruguayan international has been valued at anywhere between £68m and £100m - and as well as Barcelona, reports claim Real Madrid are also interested.

Top scorer in the Premier League last season with 31 goals, Suarez downed England with two more at the World Cup in Uruguay's second group game.

He was not fit to take part against Costa Rica, and today faces Italy with the chance to help his country qualify for the last 16 - an achievement that looked unlikely following the 3-1 defeat to the Costa Ricans.


It looks like the Liverpool star has his pick of the two El Clasico teams - not a bad position to be in. Suarez handed in a transfer request last summer, only to change his mind and stay at Liverpool.

The Anfield club may struggle to convince him to turn down Real Madrid or Barcelona though, and it may be a case of extracting the maximum possible value for him.

If you're the Reds and looking to build for the Champions League, the opportunity to sign either Pedro or Sanchez and still have the funds to buy a replacement for Suarez sounds appealing.
