Real Madrid have come out this evening with a derisory opening bid of £25 million for want away striker Luis Suarez.
The controversial Liverpool player has dominated the Football headlines all summer by publicly stating his wishes to leave Merseyside and England due to the unfair demands of the ‘English Press’ and his ultimate desire to join the Galacticos at Real Madrid.
The player then seemed to alter his very public opinions to anyone who would listen by responding to Arsenal’s surprise bid of £30 million. He claimed he was flattered that another English club would want him, despite his many disciplinary problems.

The opportunity to play in the Champions League has now appealed to the Uruguayan.
“At this moment, I am a Liverpool player, but a phone-call could change everything” was one of the many quotes that Suarez has been giving.
Liverpool have come out swiftly to state categorically that Suarez is not for sale, that he signed a new contract last year and that only bids upwards of £40 million might be reluctantly considered, though they intend to keep the South-American for at least another Season.
With wealthy club Real Madrid’s MD Perez only offering £25 million, that leaves only Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal still in the running.
Suarez has been named in the squad for the trip to Indonesia and the player is expected to join the Liverpool squad on the 22nd July in Australia.
As things currently stand, that’s where he will be.
