Florentino Pérez has played down suggestions that the club are set to make a move for Liverpool striker Luis Suárez.

The Uruguayan’s future has been the subject of speculation after he was banned for 10 games for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanović in their 2-2 draw at Anfield last month.

The Reds forward refused to rule out a move to Santiago Bernabéu when talking to a radio station in his native Uruguay yesterday, admitting that he would contemplate a transfer if the La Liga giants came calling.

However, Real Madrid president Pérez has said that while Suárez’s talents would make him a desirable acquisition for any team, he does not think a move for the frontman is imminent.

“Suárez is a great player and I am sure all in the world would want him,” Marca quotes Pérez as saying.

“I like him and others too, but it does not always fit.”

The Spaniard is currently running unopposed for Los Blancos’ presidency next season.

Suárez finished the season with 30 goals in 44 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’s side but will miss the first six games through suspension if he remains at Anfield next season.
