Liverpool Prepared to Resist Late Real Madrid Bid For Luis Suarez

Real Madrid are prepared to make a late bid to try to sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, but the Merseyside club are bracing for an offer and are prepared to stand firm once again to try to keep the Uruguayan at Anfield.

The Guardian newspaper reports that Liverpool owner John W Henry is still insistent that Suarez is not for sale.

In the meantime, the dominos are set to fall. If and when Real Madrid’s £85m deal for Gareth Bale goes through tomorrow, that’ll clear the way for Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria to move to Arsenal (if the Gunners can finalize a deal).

John W Henry’s firm stance that Suarez is not for sale has to be admired. But his resolve may be tested in the next 11 days as we edge closer to the end of the summer transfer window on September 2, 2013.
