Liverpool fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern have been sweating over the future of Luis Suarez and whether or not they will lose their star man to Real Madrid. The latest twist has seen sources at the BBC Sport reveal the 26-year-old has made comments hinting that a switch to Spain is the most likely outcome.
Suarez, who is serving a 10 game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic admitted on Wednesday it would be ‘difficult to say no’ to Real Madrid, and the Uruguayan has added further fuel to the fire by saying: “It’s a good moment for a change of environment because of all I’ve been through.”
He added: “I do not know when I’m going and I do not know if I’m staying.
“But the treatment I received from the rest of England in recent weeks has been tough.
“It [Liverpool] is a spectacular club, but they are aware of the way that the press treats me.”
Suarez enjoyed an incredible season at Anfield which saw him scored 30 goals in all competitions, the most he has managed since his £22.7 million move from Ajax in January 2011.
He has reitirated his desire to stay at Liverpool in recent weeks, but since the fallout from the biting incident it appears he is intent on a switch to Spain.
He said: “It is normal that it is impossible to say no to big teams for which one always dreams. Yet I have nothing, I have not spoken with Real Madrid nor with Liverpool.
“My agent has not told me anything either and that leaves me alone, but they [the media] are speculating.
“Every time you do something it becomes big. I just said I’m very happy at Liverpool and I’ll be forever grateful to this great city and this club made me grow so much, where I still have a contract.”
Is Suarez destined to join up with Real Madrid this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
