Edinson Cavani has suggested that Luis Suarez is better than Gareth Bale by claiming his fellow Uruguayan would justifiably command a world-record transfer fee if he leaves Liverpool.
Suarez was in sensational form against Norwich City on Wednesday night, netting four times and setting up Raheem Sterling for Liverpool’s final goal in the 5-1 thrashing at Anfield.
Paris Saint-Germain hitman Cavani believes if Suarez chose to leave Liverpool in the summer, he would cost his suitors more than the £86million Real Madrid paid for the Wales winger.
Cavani, who has netted 13 times since making his £55m move to PSG, leads the line for Uruguay alongside Suarez, and believes if the Liverpool forward does break Bale’s transfer record, he would be worth every penny.
The former Napoli man believes that Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi of Barcelona are the two best players in the world, but claims Suarez isn’t far behind the La Liga pair.
‘Yes all of the four goals Luis (Suarez) scored were of the highest quality,’ Cavani said. ‘But nothing he does surprises me because I know what he is capable of.’
‘He is the only player that I think is on the same level as Ronaldo and Messi.
‘If two or three of the biggest clubs in Europe show interest in him – then I think he could break the world-record fee for sure – and with the way he is playing you would have to say he is worth it.’
But now the 26-year-old appears to be settled in Liverpool and has scored a sensational 13 goals so far for the Reds this season.
