The Spaniards are believed to have agreed a deal worth in excess of £100m for the Tottenham star, despite already having spent big to lure Isco and Javier Illarramendi to the Bernabeu this summer.
But, once the Welshman’s signature has been secured, Real will once again break the bank with a £40m raid for Suarez.
The Uruguayan has made little secret of his desire to leave Anfield this summer, as he searches for regular Champions League football.
Arsenal are, so far, the only team to have made any official approaches, but the Reds are reluctant to sell their star man to a domestic rival.
Although they are said to value him at around £50m, a lower offer from abroad could tempt them, as they look to put the drama behind them ahead of the new season.
According to reports, the Anfield side are expecting to receive a formal offer from Real next week, and are aware that it may be best for all involved to accept.
The double swoop could set the ball rolling for a sensational return to Old Trafford for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese superstar has been heavily linked with an £80m move back to Old Trafford.
Liverpool fans, is it time Luis Suarez left? Or does he owe your side one more season?
