Spanish newspaper Marca believe City have made the Uruguayan international their top target for this summer’s transfer window, despite him having just signed a new deal to keep him at Anfield until 2018.

Suarez became the highest paid player in Liverpool history when he put pen to paper just before Christmas, but that hasn’t stopped the rumours of a summer move.

Arsenal and Real Madrid were both keen on the 27-year-old last year, but according to Marca it’s Man City who could be making a mega-bucks offer for Suarez this time around.

The newspaper reports City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain has already held initial talks with the striker, but it would take a huge offer – likely upwards of £70m – to convince Liverpool to sell their prize asset, especially with Champions League football on the horizon.

Suarez has netted 25 goals for the Reds already this term and is among the leading candidates to be named PFA Player of the Year.
