Why Luis Suarez will not join Manchester United despite staggering offer

Luis Suarez has been heavily linked with Manchester United in the last few hours. If the latest reports are to be believed, Jose Mourinho's club are preparing a staggering €149 million offer in a desperate attempt to lure the Uruguay striker away from the Camp Nou.

According to the British media, Luis Suarez would be joining €105 million man and former Barcelona target Paul Pogba at Manchester United. The Red Devils, currently outside the top four and a considerable eight points away from the top of the Premier League, are reportedly planning on investing heavily to turn their fortunes around.

Given his proven goalscoring record wherever he has played throughout his career, it is not surprising to see Luis Suarez being linked with pretty much every struggling major side in world football. His level of desire, competitiveness and, above all, effectiveness in front of goal make him one of the very few stars who could single-handedly change the fortunes of any team.

Suarez, however, is in a privileged position in Barcelona. Loved by staff, teammates and supporters alike, the Uruguay star knows that a move elsewhere would make no sense at this point in his career. Playing alongside players of the calibre of Lionel Messi, Neymar or Andres Iniesta, Suarez often finds himself at the end of crosses which forwards in other teams only dream of. Now fully adapted to the Barcelona system, starting from scratch away from the Camp Nou would be a terrible idea.

The Suarez-to-United story is a non-starter. The 29-year-old was dedicating his Golden Boot to the Camp Nou only yesterday while his name echoed around the majestic Catalan stadium. Leaving such a favourable situation to join forces with the self-proclaimed Special One makes no sense.
