Atletico join the race for Liverpool ace

Luis Suárez

Atletico Madrid have entered the running to sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Suarez announced his intention to leave Merseyside after claiming he was being victimised by the English media and so a bidding war is set to erupt.

Real Madrid are the hot favourites to sign the Uruguayan although Napoli hitman and Suarez’s compatriot Edinson Cavani is their number one choice after missing out on Brazilian Neymar who has joined rivals Barcelona.

Real president Florentino Perez knows he needs a big name addition in the coming weeks after the Neymar fiasco doubled with the failure to lure Carlo Ancelotti to replace Mourinho as manager.

Atletico are set to hijack their rivals deal though and spend almost all of the £50million they received from Monaco for Radamel Falcao this week on Suarez.

The Liverpool striker would prefer a move to the Bernabeu despite the face Real went trophy-less this season and their city rivals picked up domestic and European silverware.
