Real Madrid ruled out Luis Suárez's signing after his knee injury

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

According to Spanish journalist Sergio Valentín, the player and the club had an agreement but Real Madrid's doctors decided to rule out the move.

Real Madrid and Luis Suárez had an agreement in which the Uruguayan striker would join los blancos this summer, but the club's doctors ruled the move out after the surgery to repair his meniscus before the 2014 FIFA World Cup. That is what EsRadio's Sergio Valentín has reported this morning.

Suárez and Real Madrid reached that agreement -pending of a deal between both Liverpool and Real Madrid- last April, but that agreement does no longer stand after his knee injury. The Uruguayan striker has played well this World Cup, and it seems that he doesn't have a problem with that knee, but Real Madrid's doctors reportedly believe that there is a good chance of a relapse. This risk and the potential transfer fee that Real Madrid would've had to paid finally convinced Florentino Pérez that Suárez was not a good idea, according to Valentín.

Some journalists have reported that Suárez's conflicts biting Chiellini and Ivanovic in the past were the main reasons behind Real Madrid's decision, but it has all been a matter of his knee injury.

According to that same report, Karim Benzema's contract extension is Real Madrid's main priority now.
