Inter and Real Madrid eye Suarez

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is being offered the chance to escape the racism row that has engulfed him in the last few months by moving to Europe, according to The Daily Mail. Italian giants Inter Milan and Spanish supremos Real Madrid are interested in signing the Uruguayan in the summer.

Suarez is in the midst of an eight-game ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in the 1-1 draw on October 15th 2011. The Uruguayan makes his return against United in February and will be subjected to a whole host of abuse from fans up and down the country when he is back from the ban. Suarez has impressed for Liverpool and the Reds have been behind Suarez’s case for the whole of its duration, but the Uruguayan may be keen to escape the stresses of English football soon.

Reds owner John W. Henry is concerned about how the Suarez incident has affected the club and believes the Uruguayan could affect image and commercial rights at Anfield. Representatives of the 24 year old have had contact from Inter and Madrid, but Liverpool are unprepared to listen to offers at this current time. The two European giants could make a move in the summer and Inter have the upper hand with Suarez’s compatriot Diego Forlan currently playing at the Guiseppe Meazza.

Suarez posted on his official Twitter page last night that he was right behind his teammates following their disappointing 3-1 loss to Bolton yesterday. Kenny Dalglish’s side have suffered since Suarez’s ban and the Reds will be eager to have the 24 year old back in their squad.
