Real Madrid To Offer Liverpool Gonzalo Higuain + £10m For Luis Suarez ‘Within Days’

Real Madrid are ready to finally make their move for Luis Suarez by offering Liverpool Gonzalo Higuain plus £10million for the Uruguayan hitman, according to the Mirror.

The Spanish giants have been linked with Suarez for most of the summer but it seems they’re set to step up their interest with a formal offer which is expected to be tabled within the next few days.

The report claims Madrid are planning to offer long-term Arsenal target Gonzalo Higuain as bait in player-plus-cash deal, but it’s unlikely to be well received at Anfield with Liverpool expected to rejected the proposal out-of-hand and insist any interested party meets the players £40m ‘activation’ clause.

Arsenal are likely to be keeping a close eye on developments as they’ve been linked with Higuain and Suarez themselves in recent weeks. After struggling to agree a fee for Higuain the Gunners switched their attention to Suarez last week with a £30m bid being rejected, but the Mirror suggest Arsene Wenger retains an interest in both strikers.

Some suggest the offer was simply a tactic to try and pressure Madrid into lowering their demands for the Argentinean international, but whether there is any truth behind that remains to be seen. Either way, the La Liga giants have responded by lining up an offer for Suarez that could see Higuain end up at Liverpool – a swap deal that would see Arsenal miss out on both strikers.

The Mirror claim Liverpool are determined to try and hold on to Suarez and will only reluctantly do business if someone meets his activation clause or if the player hands in a written transfer request, but it’s gearing up to be an intriguing battle between three clubs for two of Europe’s top forwards.

    there trying to sell higuian for £22 million, so this deal only adds up to £32 million plus higuian’s massive wages

    never goney happen

    higuian plus £20 million and pay £20% of his wages sounds about right

    That is 25+10 = 35.

    Can’t arsenal buy Higuain for 25 so that Madrid can get the 35 for Suarez?

    It suprises me that anyone read this rubbish and as for the idiots that write it do they even bother to think (or can they think) Higuain may go to Arsenal Chelsea Man city but he would never agree a move to liverpool he will only go if he goes at all for champions league football

    Higuian plus Alonso plus £10 Million pounds maybe but other than that stump up the cash or forget it.

    It would be better to get benzema and money on top for Suarez..that sounds more realistic..

    I don’t see him going to an English club, will be very surprised if he did..
