Controversial Spanish journalist Francois Gallardo has told fans that Luis Suarez will join Real Madrid this summer.
La Liga giants Real Madrid have a natural obsession with the world’s greatest footballers, and Luis Suarez is no different.
The Uruguayan international has been phenomenal this season, with those in some quarters believing he has out-performed four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi.
Statistically, it’s hard to argue, and in Luis Suarez’s case, it’s a travesty that his club Liverpool look set to miss out to Manchester City for the title and thus robbing Suarez of a much-deserved Premier League winners medal.
The Reds, however, will most certainly be looking for honours next season after such progress under boss Brendan Rodgers, though their biggest challenge might be holding on to their star player.
Luis Suarez was recently linked with a big summer move to Real Madrid, and despite the striker reportedly willing to stay at Anfield next season, controversial journalist Francois Gallardo, who initially broke the Suarez-Madrid rumours, has told views on the Chiringuito TV show that Liverpool’s number 7 is obliged to join Carlo Ancelotti’s side this summer.
He said: “Real Madrid will sign the best striker around at this moment in time. The deal is bound, because to be the best, Madrid has to have the best players.”
“He has a clause, which is uniquely for Real Madrid, and he will end up in Real Madrid. The price will be €70m or €80m, because goals cost money.”
“The player that will end up in Madrid is Luis Suarez, without doubt. Besides, Barcelona and Real Madrid have to have the best, and yesterday’s game [Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw at Valladolid] demonstrates this."
Luis Suarez has scored 31 goals and assisted a further 12 in 32 Premier League appearances this season, contributing to a goal every 67 minutes.
With Karim Benzema once again failing to do the business in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, Los Blancos appear to have earmarked Luis Suarez as the perfect man to complete their star-studded strike force.
