Madrid Offer Higuain Plus Cash For Suarez

Liverpool sources are playing down the suggestion emanating from a number of UK and Spanish newspapers that Real Madrid have offered striker Gonzalo Higuain, plus between £15-£20 million, for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Suarez who is expected to have detailed talks with manager Brendan Rodgers over the next day or so, is said to be Real Madrid’s major transfer priority. However, Liverpool sources say they have yet to see any approach from Madrid.

In addition, Rodgers is coming to the view, backed by the board, that unless a blockbuster offer arrives for the want-away striker, then he will be staying at Liverpool for at least another season.

The offer of Argentine striker Higuain, while intriguing, if true, will not change that mindset.

Madrid are said to have identified Suarez as a key target having failed to sign Cavani, and they have taken into account Suarez would like a move to Spain.

Higuain is keen on a move to England, but was thought to be on his way to Arsenal.
