Real Madrid are ready to step up their interest in Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Real appear to have fallen behind Bayern Munich in the race for the unsettled Uruguay international.

With Napoli striker Edinson Cavani now on the brink of moving to Chelsea, Perez is pouring all his resources into prising Suarez away from Anfield.
