It is always a risky business believing in anything printed by Spanish sports newspaper Marca these days, however they state that Real Madrid will bid for Luis Suarez currently at Liverpool in the January transfer window.
It was expected that Real would try for Suarez during this summer transfer window, however, with their outlay on Gareth Bale and the late transfer of Mezut Ozil to Arsenal, they have had to bide their time until the next transfer window in January.
It does seem that the transfer money from the Ozil deal is already burning a hole in their collective pockets and manager Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of the Uruguayan hitman.
Suarez finally had to realise that nobody was going to come in for him during the summer transfer window, especially as Liverpool were playing hardball, so he had to make a half-hearted gesture that he was happy to stay at the club, whilst telling friends the complete opposite. Needless to say, he will not be signing any new deals with Liverpool, as he has already been tipped off about the interest from Real Madrid and will just bide his time until January.
Marca also claim that should Real Madrid be unable to make the Suarez transfer, they will turn their attention to Radamel Falcau who recently moved to Monaco in a mega transfer deal, however, the likelihood of that happening is very remote given that he has only just moved there.
Nobody is quite sure whether Arsenal paid the Ozil transfer money in one go or in instalments, so it remains to be seen whether Real are financially able to muster the funds necessary to make the Suarez transfer deal.
