Suarez transfer talk intensifies




The Luis Suarez saga continues to heat up after talk that three clubs are now interested in signing the controversial Liverpool striker.

At the moment the 26-year-old has been given a three week holiday by his club Liverpool to rest up after playing for Uruguay in the Confederations Cup in Brazil, and will meet up with his teammates in Australia for a series of exhibition matches down under.

While at home in Montevideo Suarez was telling everyone who wanted to listen about how he felt victimized by the press in the U.K. going as far to say that if Real Madrid wanted him that it would be hard to say no to the Spanish giants leading to speculation that a deal had already been done.

Last Wednesday evening events took a dramatic turn with bookmakers slashing their odds on Suarez to join Arsenal following a spate of heavy betting in and around the Barcelona area, with leading bookmaker William Hill even suspending betting on the man who only a few hours earlier you could have got 20-1 on him joining the Gunners.

The bookmakers are not often wrong so there must be something as to the reason they cut the odds do dramatically, yet I am still skeptical over a move to Arsenal.

This morning the saga took a new twist, and this could in fact be the reason that people were piling their money on Suarez going to London with all punters automatically assuming it was to Arsenal.

Today the Spanish sports daily AS is reporting that after failing in their attempt to sign Edinson Cavani from Napoli that Jose Mourinho has decided to go after Luis Suarez with the Blues ready to offer Liverpool 40 million euros, and Suarez 5.5 million euros a season.

We will have to wait and see how this one plays out, but one thing is for sure Luis Suarez will be one of the summers most talked about transfers.
