Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has admitted he could leave the Reds and join Bayern Munich in the near future.
The Uruguay international had previously stated he was happy to remain at Anfield. However, Bayern, who will be managed by former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola from next season, have been heavily linked with a move for the Reds' talisman of late and would reportedly table a big-money offer for him in the summer. And Suarez has now played his part in fuelling the speculation, by encouraging the German giants to make an approach for him.
"If one day the club made an offer for me, we will sit down and see what is the best for everyone," the Express quoted the forward as saying.
Suarez, who joined Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011 for around £23m, has scored 25 goals so far this season. It would not be easy for the Merseyside outfit to hold on to the 26-year-old in the summer, as they are unlikely to finish in the top four and secure Champions League action for next season.
Brendan Rodgers' hopes of salvaging the season by winning a trophy also ended in midweek, when the club was knocked out of the Europa League by Russian side Zenit St Petersburg.
Agent: Borini Staying at Liverpool
Meanwhile, Suarez' Liverpool strike partner Fabio Borini's agent claims his client has no intentions of leaving Anfield anytime soon.
The Italy international's debut season with the Reds has been marred by injury issues, and he is now reportedly a summer target for Fiorentina. However, the player's representative Marco De Marchi has dismissed all the rumours surrounding his future.
"I don't know anything more than what I have read in newspapers. I am certainly glad to see that Fiorentina are building something important. But Fabio is happy to be at one of the most prestigious clubs in the world," De Marchi said.
Borini is set to miss the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.
