Manchester United are considering a move for a former Liverpool favourite, while Inter Milan have entered talks with a reported Chelsea target, according to Wednesday’s European papers.



Manchester United have made contact with the agent of Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, according to a shock report from Spain.

Suarez has come under criticism for his performances this season, but has still managed to score 15 league goals in 23 appearances.

A report from Diario Gol claims that United are in the hunt to secure the shock signing of the 32-year-old this summer, amid doubts over the long-term future of Romelu Lukaku.

The Red Devils have even contacted the Uruguay star’s agent, with a huge contract offer on the table to try and tempt the Liverpool hero to move to Old Trafford.

However, the “will of the striker is to stay at Barca as long as he can,” the report adds, with Suarez very happy at the Camp Nou.

Suarez scored 82 goals in 133 appearances during his time at Anfield, becoming a fan favourite in Merseyside.
