Manchester City and Liverpool are on a crash course into each others' paths this week. The Premier League rivals will meet Sunday at Anfield in a match that will help decide the league fates of both clubs.
Yet, the biggest battle between blue City and red Liverpool might be coming this summer.
When this Premier League season started, Luis Suarez was still serving a ban and Liverpool were thought to be a threat for Europa League qualification but little more.
At the time of writing, though, Suarez is the leading scorer in the league, which Liverpool leads at a very late date in the Premier League calendar.
Meanwhile, City never seem to know which of their expensive strikers will feature or score. Manuel Pellegrini is hoping that Sergio Aguero will be ready for Anfield, but that is all he can do—hope.
Would City really want to pry Suarez out of Liverpool with the promise of deeper Champions League runs than Liverpool are presently capable of?
It is going to be an interesting summer.
