Man Utd planning record offer for Suarez?

Luis Suarez news

United could spend big on Suarez next summer

Manchester United are prepared to cough up a world-record sum to sign Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, Spanish source Don Balon says.

The 29-year-old is currently contracted to Barcelona until the summer of 2019, and talks over a fresh deal are yet to resume.

Don Balon suggests that the Red Devils are prepared to test the Catalan's resolve next summer with the uncertainty lingering over Suarez's future.

Barcelona are currently in a tight fix with their financial structure, and United feel that a £135m bid could be tempting enough to lure the player to Old Trafford next season.

Manchester United are currently struggling to find the net on a regular basis with Zlatan Ibrahimovic having gone over nine hours of first-team football without a goal.

Jose Mourinho's side are currently placed eighth in the league standings with 15 points.
