Real Madrid intended to sell Benzema to Arsenal—Luis Suarez on Barcelona move

Posted by

Luis Suarez, the Inter Miami striker, has stated that he almost signed with Real Madrid to replace Karim Benzema.

In an interview with DelSol, Suarez said that he preferred to join Barcelona over a move to Arsenal for Benzema.

According to him, the infamous bite on Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup caused Madrid to lose interest.

“Before the 2014 World Cup, Real Madrid wanted me because they wanted to sell Benzema to Arsenal.”

“At the time, Barcelona was also interested, and Luis Enrique was pressing.

“Despite the sentence, Barcelona remained interested in signing me. “I will always be grateful for that,” Suarez stated.
