Luis Suárez is still waiting to complete a “dream” move to Real Madrid from Liverpool, according to his Uruguay team-mate Edinson Cavani.

The 26-year-old striker’s future was a source of relentless speculation over the summer after he publicly declared his desire to quit Anfield.

However, Liverpool remained firm in their stance that their star man was not for sale, despite Arsenal making two big-money bids for the striker.

But Cavani believes that Suárez is still hankering for a move away from Anfield and is waiting for a transfer to Spain.

“He is the most complete striker in England – and one of the most complete strikers in the world,” said Cavani.

“I am sure Liverpool fans are very happy Luis stayed – he will be a big player for them. I think Arsenal was not Luis’s dream move, maybe if it had been Real Madrid then it would have been a different outcome.

“Of course, Madrid were concentrating on a different target this summer. It is his dream club – and a club he thinks is worth waiting for.”
