Luis Suarez could be the subject of a £100m bidding war between Real Madrid and Barcelona, according to reports.

The Liverpool striker has been in electric form this season, and could yet finish as winner of the European Golden Boot for the leading goalscorer in all the European leagues, something that has understandably piqued the interest of the world's biggest clubs.

However it is believed that Real Madrid are set to employ leaking tactics to try and put pressure on Liverpool and Suarez as they try to lure the Uruguayan star to the Spanish capital.

Madrid may have missed out on La Liga glory this year but they have a shot at European success when they take on city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final, and reportedly will try their tried and tested method of issuing unofficial 'come and join us' messages in the Spanish media.


However it is understood that not only do Real face a battle in persuading Liverpool to sell their star man, but that any bid to sign the striker could face heavy competition from eternal rivals Barcelona, perhaps pushing Suarez's transfer fee past the £100m mark.

However although it has been repeatedly denied, there are many who still believe that Suarez has a minimum fee release clause in his contract should he be subject to a bid from a big club, which would increase the chances greatly of his departure to Spain.
