Real Madrid are ready to make a sensational swap offer for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The Daily Star says Real are plotting a January move for Suarez by offering Liverpool £20m plus Karim Benzema.

The Uruguayan has his heart set on a move to Carlo Ancelotti's Madrid - and the Spanish giants hope offering Liverpool a big-name replacement for Suarez plus cash will tempt them to sell.

Madrid value Benzema at £20m, making the overall package worth around £40m.

The French striker has been told he can leave Madrid after falling down the pecking order at the Bernabeu.
