SUAREZ UP FOR PS25M REAL DEAL.

Byline: JOHN CROSS

LUIS SUAREZ has been offered a four-year contract by Real Madrid - and is ready to tell Liverpool he wants to go.

His agent Pere Guardiola, brother of Bayern Munich boss Pep, has thrashed out personal terms ahead of a PS25million bid.

Real have offered Suarez PS140,000-a-week plus incentives and bonuses for trophies, goals and appearances. Now they just need to do the deal with Liverpool.

Suarez has laid the groundwork by admitting it "would be hard" to snub Real Madrid and blaming the press for unfair treatment over his bans for biting and racism.

But the striker may have to force the issue by showing Liverpool that he wants out.

Real believe there is a PS40million buy-out clause in his contract but they will only go to PS25million for a straight cash deal.

They are, though, prepared to offer a player-plus-cash deal of PS20million and forward Jose Callejon.

They are likely to make their move on Monday.

Suarez's camp insist there is interest from English clubs - Manchester City have tried to sign him in the past - but he wants to go to Spain, partly out of respect for Liverpool.
