Anfield side prepared to allow Uruguayan to pursue Bernabeu move.
Real Madrid have apparently come to an understanding in relation to their ongoing pursuit of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
CaughtOffside understands that Liverpool have an agreement with their Uruguayan forward that would lead the 26 year old to being given permission to leave the Anfield club if they fail to secure a Champions League berth for next term, which in turn would result in Real Madrid launching a £60m bid for the 26 year old marksman.
Liverpool representatives have discussed the possibility of selling Suarez to the Bernabeu outfit, who expressed an interest in the former Ajax man over the summer and the two clubs have tentatively agreed on a £60m fee as the Merseyside club look to prevent any sale to a domestic rival, having already turned down two Arsenal bids for the player.
Liverpool battled hard over the summer to appease unhappy Suarez, who felt that the club needed some much needed investment in order to have any chance of securing a coveted top four spot. A number of top signings were made and this has resulted in Brendan Rodgers’s side mounting a concerted push for Champions League football.
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has earmarked a move for Suarez as the ideal candidate to act as the club’s central striker with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale providing support from wide areas, creating potentially the most feared attack in world football.
The La Liga side are willing to wait until the summer though could look to strengthen their attack in the January transfer window if needs be, though the recent return to form shown by Karim Benzema may negate the need to do so.
Suarez has made a superb return to Premier League football, scoring eight goals in six matches since returning from the ten match ban he received for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.
Rodgers has been assured that the £60m the club would bank from the possible sale of Suarez would be made available for the purchase of a top quality replacement with the likes of Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke and Real Madrid forward Benzema being high up on the Northern Irishman’s wish-list.
Suarez has scored a total of 59 goals from 96 starts since his £22m move to Liverpool back in January 2011.
