Report: Manchester City keen on signing Barcelona star for £85million

Luis Suarez

According to The Sun , the Sky Blues are in the talks of bringing Barcelona’s Luis Suarez to the Etihad Stadium.

Not long after newly appointed coach, Pep Guardiola, came to England, talks of the Uruguayan joining the squad began to rise once again. The Sky Blues have been interested in bringing the current Barcelona forward to Manchester City for quite a while now.

With Suarez’s agent, Pere Guardiola, being brothers with Manchester City’s team manager, Pep Guardiola, Pep will surely be one of the first to know if the confident goal scorer is ever ready to leave the current La Liga title holders.

Yet, a few factors are stopping the striker in making a move back to the Premier League.

It is reported to be the Uruguayan’s wife who is not ready to make a move back to England after having found comfort in Spain. Also, Suarez is contracted to stay with Barcelona until the end of the 2019 season.

Nonetheless, it is not surprising that Pep is eager to bring a new signing of a high caliber player to the team.

However, bringing the remarkably gifted forward back to England would cost the club a massive £85m.

Barcelona managed to sign Suarez from Liverpool for roughly £20m less back in 2014, which is a steal for the Spaniards considering the achievements the Uruguayan has entertained the world with since his first appearance as a Barcelona player.

If the striker makes the decision to return to the Premier League’s Manchester City, the club will surely notice the progress Suarez will bring along with him.

Surely, Pep is looking to bring an outstanding, world class player to the squad after Manchester United revealed the signing of Paris Saint-Germain’s, Zlatan Ibrahimovich. Not looking to be shown up, bringing a player with the stature of Suarez will unquestionably stun the fans of the club.

If City is to play in a 4-4-2 formation, having Suarez play alongside Kun Aguero will sure be a nightmare for any defensive side they are going against.

Suarez ended the 2015/2016 La Liga season with a spectacular 40 goals to his name. Surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’s 35 goals, and current teammate Lionel Messi’s 26.
