Real Madrid President Denies Bid For Suarez

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says the club has not bid for Uruguayan duo Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

Los Blancos have been repeatedly linked with Liverpool’s Suarez and Napoli striker Cavani this summer but Perez told Spanish daily AS: “We have not bid for either.”

Cavani, 26, has previously admitted an interest in joining Real but looks set to sign for Ligue 1 champions PSG after the French club’s director Leonardo admitted a deal was close.

Suarez, meanwhile, has made no secret of his desire to leave Anfield this summer, with Real thought to be leading the chase for the controversial forward.

The 26-year-old scored 23 Premier League goals last season but claims the British press have hounded him out of the UK.

Arsenal reportedly made a shock £30m bid for the former Ajax man last week and, given Perez’s comments, it would appear the Gunners are currently the only serious suitors for the Uruguay international.
