There is massive story brewing in the Football Transfer Tavern with news from The Express that Manchester City are lining up a £35 million swoop for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez this summer.
New Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini was not prepared to agree to Napoli forward Edinson Cavani’s huge £53 million release clause and he has instead shifted his attention to luring his controversial Uruguayan team-mate.
The former Ajax man has made it clear that he wants to leave Anfield this summer with the prospect of no European football next season and the Reds could reluctantly sell him with a valuation of around £35 million put on his talents.
He is thought to be keen on joining Real Madrid but interest from the former Premier League champions will be an attractive option for the striker.
As a Liverpool punter in the tavern points out, the Reds will be apprehensive about selling Suarez to one of their Premier League rivals and that could see a deal agreed with La Liga giants Real Madrid instead.
