La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Inter have made an official offer to Atletico de Madrid for Mario Suarez: A loan with a redemption fee of 9 million euros payable over 1-2 years.  The offer was sent to the player’s agent.  Atletico have been very stubborn and do not want to let Suarez leave Madrid.    The alternative to Mario Suarez is Lucas Lieva.  The Brazilian is likely to leave Liverpool at the end of the season but has a host of suitors including Inter and Napoli that want the player in January.
