Man United have surprisingly been linked with a massive bid to sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez by Spanish source Sport.

Quite where this story started is beyond us but one imagines that under no circumstances would the Uruguayan consider a move to Old Trafford though this source does also press the claim that Real Madrid have not given up hope on bringing the 27 year old to the Bernabeu this summer and that’s a move that is perhaps a plausible one.

Louis van Gaal will no doubt be given a massive transfer war-chest this summer but a move to improve their attack is perhaps low down on the Dutch national team coach’s list of priorities as he can currently call upon a quartet of top intentional talents in the form of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez.

Far more likely are moves to freshen up a defence that is now minus Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and more than likely Patrice Evra as well. Man United could also do with freshening up their midfield and their wide attacking options before considering a move for a new striker.

Interest in Suarez will of course be sky high following a season that saw the former Ajax man net 31 Premier League goals, but given that his side mounted a genuine Premier League title challenge, secured a return to the Champions League and have tied down the prolific marksman to a new long term contract there seems very little chance the Merseyside club would consider any offer for their prized asset this summer.
