‘Suarez near Messi’

Paris- 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.’
‘I don’t know his future - but if he is sold I am sure Liverpool will want a world-record fee for him. The record was broken in the summer - and for me Luis is at a higher level than that. ‘He is the only player that I think is on the same level as Ronaldo and Messi.’
