Bundesliga giants target Liverpool ace

Luis SuarezBayern Munich are ready to step up their interest in Liverpool striker Luis Suarez as it emerged that Pep Guardiola’s brother Pere, is Suarez’s agent, according the Daily Mail.

Pere Guardiola is advising Suarez to consider his future, and with Pep due to take over Bayern in the summer, he has the Uruguayan high on his wanted list.

The former Barcelona boss has been promised substantial backing in the transfer market and is relying on his brother to point Saurez in his direction.

Although, senior sources at Juventus have confirmed the club will join the bidding for the £40million rated striker, while Barcelona are also in the frame.

But the Serie A leaders have privately admitted that the Bundesliga leaders are favourites to sign Saurez, given the family link and the money involved.

But with the prize money for reaching the semi final of the Champions League estimated to be about £40million, senior figures at Juve believe that reaching the last four of the Champions League is the minimum if they want to finance a deal for Saurez.

With Juventus facing Bayern Munich in the quarter finals, the game could have an extra twist.

Liverpool hope that Saurez stays at Anfield, but with the Uruguayan wanting Champions League football and having an agent with strong links to one of the top teams in Europe, keeping Suarez at Liverpool may be a tough ask.
