Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is being watched by Real Madrid chiefs. El Mundo Deportivo says Real president Florentino Perez still wants a big-name signing made this season and with coach Jose Mourinho going cold on Santos whiz Neymar, the focus is turning to Suarez.

Mourinho still wants his 'No9' signing and Copa America winner Suarez fits the bill.

The Uruguay international's growing profile across Latin America also suits Real's marketing men and a bid in January cannot be ruled out.

The stumbling block is Suarez would prefer to play for Barcelona as his agent is Per Guardiola, Pep Guardiola's brother. But that will only motivate Perez more to get one over Real's eternal rivals.
