Real Madrid linked with Suarez with Benzema to be part of the deal

31 October 2013 09:59

The Daily Star has reported that Real Madrid are set to offer £20 million plus Benzema for the in form Luis Suarez from Liverpool.

Suarez has his heart set on Real Madrid after they confirmed their interest during the summer. Arsenal were also linked with Suarez and had a bid turned down for the striker but it is believed Suarez would prefer a move abroad due to his poor relationship with the English media.

The striker has been in good form for Liverpool since returning from his lengthly ban and has helped Liverpool to maintain their good start to the season with a stunning hat-trick against West Brom on Saturday.

A potential stumbling block would be convincing Benzema to join Liverpool as it is thought he would prefer Champions League football. The deal could be worth in excess of £40 million with Benzema worth a reported £20 million.

Real Madrid would make a cash-only bid should Benzema turn Liverpool down and may have to raise funds by selling Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria who has been linked with Totenham, Chelsea and Manchester United in the past.

Arsenal could also make another offer for Suarez after making a cheeky £40 million plus £1 in the summer however Liverpool are maintaining the striker is not for sale.

Suarez wanted to leave Liverpool in the summer for a club in the Champions League and Liverpool could be tempted with a big cash offer for the contraversial striker.
