Luis Suarez is one of the best strikers in the World but at the same time one of the most wanted players in Europe. Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, PSG are some of the top teams that want the 26 years old forward. Arsenal tried to sign him also last summer but Liverpool rejected all the offers.
Latest news from Spain suggest that Real will make an official offer next month when the transfer period will be opened. The Madrid giants are willing to pay up to €72 millions to take the Uruguayan star to Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid have sold Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli last summer and the only central forward solutions is Benzema. Liverpool will try to keep their star man but his future will probably depend on Champions League qualification. Liverpool have big chances of finishing in the top four this season.
Brendan Rodgers declared that Suarez is more than happy at Liverpool and that he will not leave this season.

Tottenham were one of the biggest spenders last summer but the things are still not going as good as they planned. Tottenham spent over €100 millions on Cristian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches, Etienne Capoue, Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho.
Anyway the London club have lost their star Gareth Bale who left for Real Madrid for an impressive sum of £80 millions.
After 12 games Tottenham are out of European cup places, 9th in the premier league standings, at 8 points behind first place occupied by Arsenal and 2 points behind 4th place which would assure a Champions League qualification spot.
Despite having a numerous squad Villas-Boas is forced to improvise at left back. Danny Rose is injured and the Portuguese manager is forced to play with Vertonghen in that position.
Villas-Boas declared recently that Tottenham will not buy a new defender this winter even if Danny Rose will be out for a longer period. Anyway there are rumors that suggest that Tottenham are interested in signing Southampton wonderkid Luke Shaw.
The 18 years old defender made 28 appearances last season and another 10 this year. His performances could not go unnoticed by the big clubs. Chelsea are also interested in signing the player but Tottenham are in pole position right now.

The video replay one of the most discussed topic in football in the recent years.
Everyone expects from the referees to be perfect, or at least to reduce the mistakes during the games but it looks that this is a very hard task to do. So everyone tries to find solutions, and Fifa is pressed from all sides to come with an alternative.
In the first phase Fifa tried the system with 6 referees, tested it in Europa League, but even this solution doesn’t seem to be better. There were also speculations that the ball should contain a chip to signal when the ball passes the line of the goal but the solutions is not well seen by the specialists.
So at the moment it looks like the only viable solution is the video replay.Regarding the video replay the opinions are divided with a plus for it. Fifa is pressed to take a decision especially after the World Cup mistakes, when some of them proved to be crucial.
So after rugby, basketball, tennis or american football we might have video replays also in football. This decision would bring advantages but not only.
At advantages we can mention fewer mistakes that can decide games and fewer scandals. On the other side the spirit and the charm of the game would suffer. Imagine for example a game show with a similar setup – a Who Wants To Be Millionaire Online Game for example would take so long and become boring. Also the game could have more than 10 minutes of additional time which could determine the players to lose their patience awaiting for the verdict, the fluidity of the game could also suffer.
The final decision will be taken in November but there are chances for a positive answer.keep looking »
