Former Newcastle player backs up Suarez transfer rumours

According to Albert Luque, Liverpool’s striker Luis Suarez is still dreaming of Playing in La Liga in Spain.

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez is having an exceptional season at Anfield and has already scored 30 goals in 30 season appearances in the Premier League.

Last December he extended his contract with Liverpool until 2018 but rumours of a release clause being included continue to circulate.

According to Albert Luque, his former team mate at Ajax Amsterdam, Suarez might be open for a move to a Spanish top club. Several Spanish online sites including and quoted Luque’s latest statements.

“Luis Suarez’ dream is to play in La Liga. I know him well because we were team mates and we have shared a lot of things. We are still in contact and his dream is Spain. Some time ago he was in contact with Barcelona, but he would love to go to Real Madrid.”

One could think that two players in the Dutch league shared their career dreams back then and that Suarez has now different priorities after this successful season with Liverpool. On the other hand Luque, who also played for Newcastle United from 2005 to 2007, said that they’re still in contact, so may be Suarez’ dream of playing in the Spanish league is still alive.

That’s at least what the famous Spanish tv host and FIFA agent Francois Gallardo was convinced of when he made the following statements in his program El Chringuito 24 hours ago:

“Luis Suarez told Liverpool that he wants to talk to Real Madrid. He asked them to listen to Real Madrid and that he will go to Real Madrid. He has a clause in his contract that allows him to do so and it’s a closed deal. You can call it as you want to, but it’s a closed deal.”

Gallardo is one of the most famous football transfer oracles in Spain since being one of the first who revealed Neymar’s move to Barcelona and Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid. However, not all of his predictions have actually come true, so maybe it’s not a closed deal after all.

Right now a move from Suarez to Real wouldn’t make too much sense when you consider that he’s the absolute superstar at Liverpool and that the team has excellent prospects. At Madrid he would have to share his exceptional status at least with Ronaldo and Bale. We all know though that everything is possible in football and if Real offered 40 million Euros plus Benzema, who knows, Liverpool might just start to ponder.

Buying three or four top players for Suarez fixed transfer sum could help the Reds to make their current success more sustainable. Both options – keeping him or selling him for 70 million pounds - wouldn’t be too bad for Liverpool, and so therefore they can be very relaxed despite these transfer rumours.
