This is after Metro claimed that their star asset could well be the main player on the radar of Real Madrid.
Luis Suarez has of course just penned a new deal with the high flying Reds and it seemed he had also tied his long-term future to the club.
That, according to both our landlord and Metro may not be the case, with both claiming that the only reason the new deal was signed was to firstly increase the terms for Suarez himself and also provide a much more lucrative release clause for Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers and his men are showing exactly how good they are this season, but Suarez has been a huge part of that and after the summer bids from Arsenal, they were prepared to take no chances.
Now a release clause of £70 million has been added as part of the new contract and it seems that the figure is reasonable enough to interest Real Madrid.
The La Liga side have been looking for a world class out-and-out forward for some time now and Carlo Ancelotti is not convinced when it comes to Karim Benzema, meaning dipping into the transfer window this summer is a real possibility.
Real showed their spending power with the world record bid for Gareth Bale and are prepared to do it again.
Despite signing a new deal of late, does Suarez’s long-term future remain away from Anfield? Let us know your thoughts below.
