One of the key parts of the jigsaw on transfer day is the fate of one Luis Suarez. Should he leave Liverpool, then that might spark off a last minute dash from the Reds to replace him, while at the same time nudging another Real player, possibly Di Maria, out the door towards Arsenal.
As of 2.30 on Monday the gossip seems to be that Liverpool are determined to hang on to him, but that Real Madrid are lining up last minute bid for the player.
The Indie says
However, Real Madrid could still throw a spanner in the works according to Spanish newspaper AS. If they are to tempt the Reds to sell at this late stage though, they will have to make an offer far in excess of the bid from Arsenal.
So a £50 million offer, or maybe a cash plus player deal. If it is the former, will Real then finally push Di Maria out the door to join Ozil at Arsenal.
There are also rumours that Arsenal are going to try and tempt the Reds with one last bid.
It looks like being a nervous few hours for Liverpool fans, but for the moment he looks like he will be staying.
