Bernabeu side keen on Anfield hot-shot.
Former Bernabeu president Ramon Calderon believes Real Madrid will make a fresh move for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez in the January transfer window.
talkSPORT report that Calderon believes that the Uruguayan international would be tempted by the chance to move to the Spanish giants despite Liverpool’s fine start to the current campaign.
On the prospect of Suarez making such a move Calderon stated;
“Anyone dreams of playing for Real Madrid. I’m sure suarez would like to come,” said Calderon. “I saw the other day he scored three goals and he’s playing very well. He’s a fantastic player. Everyone would want to have him in their team.
“I don’t know if Liverpool are going to sell him and if Real Madrid has enough money to pay for him in January. He could play in the Champions League though, he’s not playing Champions League with Liverpool so it would be a good chance if Real Madrid thinks they need something like him because [Karim] Benzema is not playing well and they don’t have a proper striker nowadays so maybe [it could happen].
“There were some talks a few months ago before the summer and I don’t know what happened. Maybe because of signing [Gareth] Bale it meant it was impossible to sign Suarez, we needed to perhaps sell another player.”
Liverpool did well to hold on to the 26 year old forward over the summer, with Arsenal making a big money offer for the former Ajax man, and Brendan Rodgers will fight tooth and nail to keep hold of the striker when the transfer window re-opens.
Suarez has netted six goals in four Premier League fixtures since returning from the ten match ban he was handed for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, and has continued to work excellently alongside England man Daniel Sturridge.
Given that one of the chief motivations for Suarez supposedly seeking an Anfield exit during the close season was the lack of Champions League action the fine start to the campaign the Merseyside club have enjoyed will certainly count in Liverpool’s favour should Real Madrid come calling so Rodgers will hope that his side is still among the top four when the transfer window re-opens to help ease pressure on the situation.
