The Luis Suarez transfer saga promises to drag on until the summer window slams shut.
However, there have been noises from Suarez’s camp that he will be open to moving to Real Madrid if the Spanish giants come calling, and the European champions too are said to be interested in signing the 27-year-old.
Whether 'he will or he won’t' leave Anfield is going to carry on for several weeks, and former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has now had his say on the matter.
‘Luis Suarez is very happy at Liverpool’, the 35-year-old Cerezo Osaka forward told Goal.com. ‘They are all rumours for now, if at any time he signs for Real Madrid, I will answer that question'.
Forlan and Suarez will play alongside each other for Uruguay at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, and the former probably has some inclination what his teammate plans to do in the future.
Even if Forlan knew that Suarez wants to join Madrid, he would not make it public – he is well media-trained after all those years playing in England and Spain.
Suarez himself has said time and time again that he is happy at Liverpool – his dedication to the Reds’ quest to win the Premier League in the 2013-14 season was clear to one and all.
Recently, the former Ajax striker also stated that he has some unfinished business in England and wants to convince everyone that he is not a villain as he has been often portrayed by the English media.
Yet, the suspicion lingers on. What if Madrid do make a big offer? Would Suarez be able to reject it? Would the temptation of playing for the world’s biggest club who have just won the Champions League and who have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale among other stars in their squad prove too much to resist?
