£100 million bid for Luis Suarez

Suarez 2MANCHESTER City are considering a £100 million bid to buy Luis Suarez.

Suarez has come to the fore for Barcelona for the first time this season since his £75m move from Liverpool last summer.

The Uruguayan’s two goals in Barca’s 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium would seem to have given City no way back when it comes to the Champions League last-16 second leg at the Nou Camp.

But overall since joining Barca things have not worked out well for Suarez.

Football Grapevine sources have been told that the club would like to move the striker on.

City are aware of that and would pay a huge amount to take the player now that they realise that their ambition to sign Lionel Messi is unlikely to ever come to fruition.

The major stumbling block to any deal this summer is that Barca remain under a transfer embargo until 2016 in the wake breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations.

So even if the Catalans cashed in on Suarez they could not sign a replacement until the next January transfer window.

It is understood however that a straight swap of Sergio Aguero and Suarez is not out of the question. — Mailonline
