There is certainly a buzz at the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from the Daily Mirror, with both Arsenal and Liverpool fans crowding around our landlord.
This is because the publication have claimed that Real Madrid are set on making an approach for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez, but will not allow Karim Benzema to leave for Arsenal in order to do so.
That, according to our landlord allows the European champions to get the best of both worlds and we think that there could be a few disappointed faces should Carlo Ancelotti get his way.
Not only would Arsene Wenger have to cast his net around a little bit further in order to land a top forward – with Alvaro Morata also off the cards – but we would also ultimately lose out on last summer’s major target in the form of Suarez.
Love him or hate him, our punters cannot help but rate the Uruguayan forward and his sensational season last term was impressive if not enjoyable to watch.
Liverpool would of course resist all attempts by Real Madrid to land their star man but we think that a huge wad of cash plus the lure of life in Spain for Suarez may well be hard to turn down.
Liverpool fans. Do you think that Suarez would ever consider leaving now you are back in the Champions League? Will the lure of Spain prove to be too much? Let us know your thoughts below.
