After landing Tottenham’s Gareth Bale in a £86 million world record deal on deadline day, some would think that the Bernabeu club would now cut back on lavish purchases for a while.
However Marca today suggests that Real Madrid could move for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez during the January transfer window with president Florentino Perez still keen on signing a ‘Galactico’ striker.
Monaco’s summer signing Radamel Falcao has also been lined up by the La Liga side as they look to take advantage of his tax situation in the principality.
Los Blancos are attracted to the pair as neither are going to be ineligible for European competitions after January given their current clubs’ lack of participation in Europe this season.
The Spanish newspaper goes as far as to suggest that Madrid had agreed a deal to take the Uruguayan to Spain but Bale then became more of a priority target and the potential transfer was shelved.
Any January transfer depends on the form of Madrid striker Karim Benzema with Ancelotti uncertain if the Frenchman possesses enough firepower to be the main man in his new look attack.
The £42.5 million sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal has opened up extra funds for more business in Janaury and that could see Madrid revive their attempts bring Suarez to the Bernabeu, much to the disappointment of Reds supporters in the tavern.
As we have seen, when Real Madrid come calling, it is hard to resist so will Suarez follow Bale to the Bernabeu in January? Let us know your thoughts below.
