Luis Suarez was never interested in joining Arsenal and is holding out for a dream switch to Real Madrid according to his Uruguay strike partner Edinson Cavani.

Suarez was linked with both the Gunners and Madrid over the summer after telling Liverpool that he wanted to leave the club.

The 26-year-old eventually stayed put but close friend Cavani says he could finally leave Anfield in January – but Madrid are the only club he is interested in.

‘I think Arsenal was not Luis’s dream move – if it was Real Madrid there would have been a different outcome’ said Cavani.
