Most in need of in January: Luis Suarez
Los Blancos have done incredibly to fight their way back into this season’s title race in Spain, especially after the electric start that arch rivals FC Barcelona made to the campaign.
However, it would be both foolish and naïve of the La Liga giants to suddenly think that everything is all of a sudden fine, especially if they really do maintain ambitions of finally bringing to an end their 11-year wait to win the coveted Decima.
And in order to realise that dream, as well as keep up with Barca at the top of La Liga, then Madrid president Florentino Perez must once again open his cheque book and splash the cash so as to be able to lure brilliant Liverpool forward Luis Suarez to the Santiago Bernabeu in January.
By that point, the Merseysiders’ already slim top four dreams could well and truly be over for yet another year, meaning a frustrated Suarez—who is not cup tied in Europe this season—will be itching to quit the Reds.
And a big money offer in the region of £50 million should be enough to convince Liverpool’s American owners, the Fenway Sports Group, to part company with their mercurial, yet controversial, star man four months earlier than they would have originally envisaged.
Meanwhile, Madrid will have secured an attacking genius who would then form a front three alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale that could fire the club all the way to an historic La Liga and UEFA Champions League double come May.
