London – Manchester City are considering a January move for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

Suarez has carried Liverpool this season, scoring 11 goals and Mancini would like to recruit him. Prising the 24-year-old away from Anfield would come at a cost though – £50million would be a realistic valuation – and talks would be complex.

Liverpool’s stance has not changed since the summer when they saw off interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus. They gave Suarez a major improvement on his contract, extending it to 2017 and putting him on a par with the club’s top earners.

The Uruguay star has bought into manager Brendan Rodgers’ vision but will want to play in the Champions League.
