As we move in to the off-season an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go in to overdrive. This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?
Real Madrid are set to make a move for Luis Suarez.

What’s the story? Yeah, maybe, but it seems they are focusing their attentions on Bale at the moment. If Spurs really dig in and refuse to sell regardless of the offer then they might come back to him but he’s firmly second choice.
Does it make sense? The rumblings from Madrid are that the club are happy to go with Benzema and Morata as their strikers but if they want a bit of devilment and creativity and miss out on Bale, Suarez would be a reasonable second option.
Is the price right? Liverpool are supposed to want £50m for Suarez. It doesn’t seem like Arsenal are in any rush to pay that and Real evidently have money available.
Will it happen? 4/10 – He’s probably still more likely to end up in Madrid than at Arsenal even with the bidding on Bale.
