Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has admitted that the club would be interested in signing Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale.
The Premier League duo have long been linked with moves away from their respective clubs after incredible seasons in which they topped the scoring charts for their respective teams.
Bale fired 21 league goals for Tottenham last season and it seems his goal scoring feats have not gone unnoticed by Real Madrid. Former midfielder Zinedine Zidane has consistently urged the Wales international to move to the Spanish capital and now Perez has admitted he would like to sign the player.
Speaking to Marca just days after Bale's agent admitted the Tottenham star would 'consider an offer' from Real Madrid, Perez declared: "Bale was born to play in Madrid."
Tottenham will still be hopeful that they can persuade Bale to remain at the club but chairman Daniel Levy would certainly have much to consider if Real Madrid came in with a huge offer for the forward.
Marca believe that Madrid are willing to make an offer of €70m in order to try and persuade Spurs to part with Bale this summer and that the offer will arrive before 15 June.
This may well not be the only major signing of the summer for the Spanish giants as reports suggest that they are also willing to activate Suarez's release clause in order to prise him away from Liverpool.
It is claimed that Suarez will cost around €47m and Perez did admit that any club in the world would be fortunate to have the Liverpool striker amongst their ranks.
"Suarez is a great player and I am sure all in the world would want him. I like him and others too, but it does not always fit," added Perez.
Suarez, who fired 23 league goals last season, yesterday gave an interview in his home country of Uruguay where he suggested that he would "difficult to say not to Real" but his agent has attempted to distance the striker from a move away from Liverpool.
It would be a major blow to Liverpool and Tottenham if they lost their star players but the huge figures being mentioned would certainly soften the blow and the give the clubs the option to find suitable replacements.
Much will depend on the resolution of the club's hierarchy who will have to decide whether it is good business to allow the players to leave after both contributed so heavily to the success of their respective teams.
