Real Madrid to scout Liverpool World Cup star

Real Madrid have sent their top scout to assess Liverpool’s Luis Suarez in action for Uruguay at the World Cup, according to reports from The Metro.

The controversial goal-getter is rumoured to be the Spaniards’ top target for the coming months as they plot to build one of the most feared attacks in club football.

A move for his signature last summer was believed to have been on their agenda, but plans were shelved as the La Liga giants secure Gareth Bale from Tottenham for a world record £86m fee.

With Suarez having publically agitated for a switch 12 months ago, Real are confident that they will be able to get their man this time around, and have even lodged an opening £73m bid according to some reports in Spain.

But Carlo Ancelotti still wants some blanks filled in, and has issued instructions for his top scout to assess the South American in Brazil.

Liverpool have already made it clear that they will not sell their talismanic forward, and the player himself has also indicated that he will stay after penning a mega money contract and revealing his delight at the prospect of Champions League action at Anfield.

Yet that has not deterred Real, who have a history of paying massive fees for the planet’s top players.
