What is next for Luis Suarez?
The controversial yet massively talented forward Luis Suarez is the subject of widespread speculation this summer. The Uruguayan striker has given many interviews about his burning desire to leave Anfield but as of now hasn’t officially informed the Liverpool senior figures and officials. The former Ajax captain said the criticism he faced from sections of the English media was a major acumen behind his willingness to quit Merseyside.
[blockquote cite=”Luis Suarez” float=”left” align=”left”]My reason for leaving is not the money. If it were the money I would have left already…. It is for my family and my image, that is my priority now. I don’t feel comfortable here anymore. [/blockquote] Liverpool have always insisted Suarez is not for sale but will face a difficult battle to hold on to their talisman in the next few months.
Another impressive season for the Reds will be overshadowed by Luis Suarez’s foolishness. The former Ajax man inexplicably bit Ivanovic in a tensed Premier League encounter with Chelsea which resulted in a ten match ban . The striker was the club’s top goalscorer last season, and was included in the 2012-13 PFA Team of the Year.
Real Madrid have recently appeared to be the controversial striker’s preferred destination following recent revelation that he would find it difficult to say no to the Spanish club. A move to the capital makes sense, as Madrid’s current forwards Higuain and Benzema have both been linked with moves away from Los Blancos. After recently missing out on both Falcao and Cavani to french clubs AS Monaco and PSG respectively, Real Madrid have to make Luis Suarez their priority. After Barcelona’s recent signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar, Real Madrid will surely make a massive statement of intent with the signing of the Uruguayan.
Another recent development in the Suarez saga is the emergence of North London club Arsenal. It has been reported that Arsenal are preparing a £35 million offer for Luis Suarez (via Goal.com) Arsene Wenger has apparantely switched focus to capturing Suarez as Arsenal are struggling to agree a fee with both Real Madrid and Fiorentina for the signing of Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic respectively. In my opinion, a move to Arsenal isn’t going to transpire, after all Suarez wants to get rid of the British media.
Should Suarez decide to force a way out of Liverpool, Real Madrid look the most likely destination.
