Luis Suarez to Real Madrid: Liverpool striker has a 'predisposition for Spain'
The Uruguay international came close to an exit from Anfield last summer
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has a "predisposition for Spain" says his lawyer, sparking speculation over a possible transfer to Real Madrid.
The Uruguay international has been persistently linked with a move to the Champions League winners and the 27-year-old's representative admits such a move would be difficult for the striker to reject.
"A year ago he was very likely to leave Liverpool," Alejandro Balbi told Cadena SER.
"Now I think it is very difficult because he is an idol, although clubs can offer a lot of money.
"If there is such a big offer from Real Madrid, it would be very difficult to say no. Luis Suarez has always had a predisposition for Spain."
Suarez came close to leaving Anfield last summer during which he was the subject of a £40m-plus-£1 bid from Arsenal. However he was persuaded he should remain at Anfield and signed a fresh long-term contract in December. The former Ajax player spearheaded Liverpool's ultimately unsuccessful tilt at the Premier League title and ended the season with the Golden Boot plus the PFA Players' Player of the Year and the Football Writers' Player of the Year.
