But Real will have to cough up £40 million to prize him away.
Liverpool have told star striker Luis Suarez to stop flirting with Real Madrid and just ask for a transfer away from the Merseyside club, according to the Mirror.
The Uruguayan hitman has dropped a series of spectacularly obvious hints that he wants to leave the Premier League side for a new career in the Spanish capital as he threatens to burn the only allies he has left in the country – Liverpool’s fans.
However, the club have no grown tired of his constant press conferences and have told him to put up or shut up and ask for a transfer. The 26-year-old already has a clause in his contract that would allow him to move on for £40 million but the club have confirmed that nobody has been in contact with the club over a deal for him.
A club insider explained on Monday that there is a growing sense of frustration and anger within the corridors Anfield.
“Luis will be told – in no uncertain terms – he must put his cards on the table, and do it quickly,” the source explained.
“There is no way Brendan Rodgers will be left high and dry with no options if Suarez forces a move, so he wants it to be sorted one way or another before the season begins.”
