The 24-year-old Spanish international (pictured) has been in and out of Vicente del Bosque's starting line-up this season and Inter along with Lazio and AC Milan, are interested in bringing the striker to Italy.
Former Spanish international Suarez, now with Inter, is known to have held talks with Real's football director Jorge Valdano over a potential deal, and confirmed that they had also spoken of deals which would see Guti and Michel Salgado moving to Italy and Javier Zanetti to Spain.
"The possibility that exists Morientes can come to the Inter," said Suarez. "That deal has more possibilities than other Guti or Michel Salgado wearing the Inter shirt.
Madrid are known to be very keen on Argentine defender Zanetti, but Suarez doubts that a deal could be done, because of the players high valuation.
"They have been looking at him for several years, but I see difficulties in him going, because Inter has a very high valuation of the player."
Despite Inter's interest in the trio, it is unlikely that they will get more than one, with Morientes the most likely to go.
24-year-old Guti only signed a new five-year contract in October last year, and just before that rejected a move to Inter's rivals AC, and so is unlikely to accept a move to Milan just six months later.
Salgado, 25, would be a possibility, but realistically only if Zanetti went in the opposite direction as the two both play at right wing-back.
