Etihad Stadium side ready big money offer for Anfield forward.
Manchester City are considering a sensational January move for Luis Suarez.
Roberto Mancini has grown weary of errant forward Mario Balotelli and wants to offload the Italian to make room for the hottest striker in the Barclays Premier League.
Suarez has carried Liverpool this season, scoring 11 goals, but his form has not gone unnoticed and Mancini would like to recruit the Uruguay international
Prising Suarez away from Anfield, however, would come at a huge cost – £50million would be a realistic valuation – and negotiations would be complex.
The former Ajax forward has pledged his allegiance to Liverpool, following the support he has received after his clash with Patrice Evra and subsequent race charge, and has not given any indication he wants to leave.

Roberto Mancini is an odd chap. The Italian has a host of top strikers and the one who forward who hasn’t stopped scoring over the past year, Edin Dzeko, barely gets a look in unless Man City desperately need a goal. Yet the Etihad Stadium boss wants to bring in another forward?
Scoring goals hasn’t really been a problem for Man City but that won’t stop the big spending side looking to freshen things up and Luis Suarez is certainly a man in form. It’s fair to say that without the Uruguayan Liverpool may well be in the relegation zone right now.
After all the 25 year old has scored eight of the Merseyside club’s 14 Premier League goals this season and is clearly a player Liverpool would not dream of selling.
However what would happen if Man City did make a £50m offer? Would the club’s American owners see the pounds signs and consider such an offer? It would be potential disastrous if they did but it’s not implausible.
