Arsenal have had an audacious £30 million bid for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez rejected. Real Madrid and Chelsea have also been linked with the Uruguayan as a transfer away from Liverpool edges ever closer.
It had been reported that Arsene Wenger had inquired about the availability of the striker before being given a ‘hands off’ warning, however Wenger went on to make a £30 million bid, which was quickly rejected.
Many were of the believe that the bid is just an attempt to force Madrid into selling us Higuain but reliable people such as Tim Payton of Arsenal supporters trust ( AST ) have confirmed the bid is actually real. Jeremy Wilson of Telegraph and John Cross of Mirror have also come out to confirm the bid is real.
However, Liverpool have remained adamant that Suarez is not for sale and it will definitely take a higher offer of £30 million to persuade the Merseysiders to sell with the Kop looking for at least £50 million.
Suarez has found life in England difficult since his move from Ajax having been handed two lengthy suspensions from the FA. An eight match ban was given to the forward for racially abusing Patrice Evra before he was given a 10 match suspension at the end of last season for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, he still has six games to serve for that ban.
His preference has always been a move away from England as he feels the media target him all the time. He said it would be a ‘good moment for a change’ towards the end of the season before admitting it would be ‘difficult to say no’ to Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants have been continually linked with a move for the trickster but are yet to make an official approach for him. They have also been linked with Edinson Cavani and Gareth Bale with the hope of matching Barcelona’s marquee signing of Neymar Jr. from Santos.
Suarez is currently enjoying his summer break after representing Uruguay at the Confederations Cup. His future is expected to be sorted once he returns to Liverpool for pre-season training.
