Bayern To Launch Suarez Bid

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola is set to continue his summer spending spree – by making a concrete bid for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

The wantaway Uruguayan has repeatedly aired his desire to leave Anfield this summer and has been linked with a number of top clubs.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid are all monitoring developments, but Guardiola believes he has a genuine chance of landing the star.

The Bayern manager’s brother, Pere, is Suarez’s agent and SportsDirect News has learned Pep is set to use his family connections to launch a major offer for the 26-year-old.

Liverpool value Suarez at around £40 million, and are likely to dismiss any offers below their asking price.

That leaves only a small number of clubs in the race, with Bayern heading the queue.

Guardiola has been handed a blank cheque to build the squad he requires, and he has already splashed out on midfield pair Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara.

But he also wants to sign a striker, and Suarez heads his shortlist – though he is also said to hold an interest in Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.
