Manchester City linked with bid for Luis Suarez


    Reports today claim that Manchester City are considering an audacious £100m bid to bring former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez back to the Premier League.

    SuarezCityThe Daily Mail claim that City have identified the Uruguay striker as a key Summer target after he scored twice against them last week to see Barcelona to a 2-1 win in the Champions League match.

    Suarez, who signed for the Spanish club for £75m last Summer, has not managed to replicate the form he showed for the Reds last season at the Camp Nou so far.

    He has scored ten goals in all competitions for the Catalans, but only five of them have come in La Liga and he has been criticised by the Spanish press for his form.

    The Daily Mail report claims that Suarez has privately made it known that he would like to move on from Spain at the end of the season after playing second fiddle to Lionel Messi and Neymar in the Barca attack.

    City were reportedly interested in a move for Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi, but have realised that they are unlikely to be able to fund a move and fall within Financial Fair Play rules and so have switched attention to Suarez.

    Barcelona are likely to resist any move for the striker as they have a transfer embargo that means they cannot sign anyone until January 2016.

    But City are said to be prepared to circumnavigate that by offering a straight swap of Sergio Aguero for Suarez.

    Liverpool would not be happy to see their former star striker return to the Premier League so quickly, but it seems unlikely that the club could match bids from the likes of City for Suarez should they want to bring him back to Anfield.
