Bayern Munich believe they hold a trump card in the battle to sign Liverpool ace Luis Suarez as Pep Guardiola's brother is his agent.
The German champions-elect have long been linked with a move for the Reds ace and are said to be preparing a £40m offer in the summer, but Juventus and Barcelona are also very keen and, of course, Liverpool do not want to sell.
Bayern believe they have jumped to the front of the queue with the revelation that the brother of new coach Guardiola, who will take over in the summer, is the Uruguayan's agent.
Liverpool are desperately keen to keep hold of their star man but the 26-year-old has, as well as pledging his future to Anfield, also said he is very keen to play in the Champions League and all three suitors can offer him that whereas Liverpool will not be able to for at least another season.
Guardiola's brother is part of the management team that look after Suarez's affairs and for that reason Bayern believe they will be able to persuade the striker to move to the Allianz Arena.
