Liverpool: Real Madrid to up Suarez pursuit

Real Madrid are all the more determined to land Liverpool striker Luis Suarez this January after his sensational hat-trick against Norwich City yesterday.

Suarez scored four in total against the Canaries in a 5-1 win at Anfield, with three of his goals among contenders for goal of the season as he displayed superb individual ability.

The Uruguayan was already regarded as one of the best players in the Premier League last season, and Real Madrid were keen to sign him during the summer, though they missed out on that occasion.

However, SportsDirect News understands that the Spanish giants are now ready to up their offer for the former Ajax man to closer to £65million, which may be enough to tempt the Reds into selling their star player.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has previously stated that he has no plans to sell Suarez, but Real have a good track record of getting the players they want, as evidenced by their record-breaking fee paid for Gareth Bale this season.

Suarez has been in great form for Liverpool, but is still thought to have his heart set on a switch to Real at some point in the future.
