Manchester City should break the world record to sign Luis Suarez

If Manchester City feel a need to respond next season, a certain Liverpool striker could be the way to do it.

Manchester City have not been bang on form this season and they have looked off the pace in more ways than one.

This could mean they have to tool up ahead of next season and Luis Suarez of Liverpool could well be the perfect way for them to do just that.

Suarez has been linked with City and several other top European clubs but if the current Premier League champions can sign him, he would form a formidable partnership with Sergio Aguero in attack.

City will need to add a striker this summer after the departure of Mario Balotelli and the possible departure of Edin Dzeko who has been linked with a move back to Germany.

The club could also bring in a striker simply to respond to the way Manchester United have raced away from them this season, in the same way United responded with the signing of Robin Van Persie from Arsenal.

Suarez and Aguero are very similar types of players in the respect that they like the ball at their feet and they love to run at the opposition defence. Both of them would be superb in a combination where City were building immense pressure over the opposition.

Suarez is an impact player and looks the best bet to finish the season as the golden boot winner. It may not be a popular signing with the fans because of his public perception but that can be won over with a high volume of goals.

Suarez would also be perfect for fitting into the current City system and formation should Aguero pick up a bad injury. It would almost be an easy transition because they are such similar players.

He’s arguably a safer and more solid investment than someone like Edinson Cavani of Napoli, a player with no experience in the Premier League who would cost a similar amount of money.

Suarez has bagged 21 Premier League goals in a weaker all round side this season. Take him out of that environment and put him in a team where he is surrounded by superstars in every position and the results could be well and truly epic.

City have the resources, the potential and the prospects to pull off such a move, which would undoubtedly be the biggest transfer of the summer.

City fans, would you want him at your club?
