Bernabeu side reach agreement with Anfield star.
Spanish daily Marca claim that Real Madrid have reached agreement with Liverpool striker Luis Suarez over personal terms on a move to the Bernabeu.
This source claims that as yet the Spanish giants have not opened talks with Suarez’s employers but are willing to meet the 26 year old’s reported €47m (£40m) release clause at which point one would imagine there would be no way for Liverpool to block the sale of their star striker.
Real Madrid have agreed terms on a four year deal and clearly any interest in Suarez is with a view to finding a more effective striking option to offer support to Cristiano Ronaldo, a role that neither Karim Benzema or Gonzalo Higuain have excelled in.
With Jose Mourinho leaving the La Liga side in the summer there are bound to be major changes at the Bernabeu and having missed out on Neymar, with the Brazilian opting to join rivals Barcelona, president Florentino Perez will be keen to bring in a marquee signing to help boost his chances of re-election.
Suarez has enjoyed an excellent season this term, scoring 30 goals in all competitions, but the edge was taken off his efforts after he was handed a ten match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, a ban that still has six games to run, which one assumes would have to run it’s course in Spain should he indeed join Real Madrid.
Luis Suarez cost Liverpool £22.8m and has racked up a very healthy 51 goals in 96 appearances in all competitions.
