PARIS Saint Germain have reportedly gone public this week with their plans to launch a bid for Liverpool FC's Luis Suarez in the summer.
Naturally, Kenny Dalglish has laughed off the comments but I don’t see the situation as cut and dried.
If the French side live up to their promise of trying to lure Suarez away from Anfield then Liverpool will have to seriously weigh up the offer.
Should PSG table a bid which is significantly greater than what the club paid for him last year, then the Reds would need to sit down and mull it over.
The question would be how confident they were of entering the transfer market with, say £30m, in their pocket and finding another great player?
Such a scenario is like what the club faced when Juventus came in for Ian Rush.
Liverpool didn’t want to sell him but the offer was almost too good to turn down and it was an excellent opportunity for Rushie.
With the money, Liverpool fancied themselves to do something in the transfer market and bought John Barnes, Peter Beardsley and Ray Houghton in the summer of his departure.
I don’t know how happy Suarez is at the moment or what his long-term thoughts are.
