Paul Scholes: Luis Suarez joining Barcelona would be a mistake
Paul Scholes believes Liverpool striker Luis Suárez would be better off joining Real Madrid this summer
Paul Scholes believes that Luis Suarez would be making a mistake in joining Barcelona from Liverpool this summer – because he would be better suited to Real Madrid.
Barcelona are reported to be closing in on a £70m deal to sign the striker despite his latest biting scandal at the World Cup.
Real Madrid have also been touted as a target for Suarez – and Scholes feels that the 27-year-old would fit in better at the Bernabeu.
Scholes wrote in his Paddy Power blog: “If Luis Suarez does sign for Barcelona from Liverpool, will Lionel Messi ‘accept’ him?
“Suarez is a centre-forward and he won’t want to play out wide. I can’t see Suarez and Messi linking well together. It seems to me, if Messi likes you, you’ll play. If he doesn’t, you’re wasting your time.
“And, to be honest, I think Suarez is making a bit of a mistake going to Barcelona – he’d be better suited to Real Madrid.”
