The Uruguayan says he is paying no attention to the speculation surrounding his future at Anfield and is thinking only of the Premier League title and this summer’s World Cup
Luis Suarez insists he is happy at Liverpool, despite reports linking with him a summer move to Real Madrid.
The Uruguayan has been in sparkling form this season, with his 30 Premier League goals firing Liverpool to the top of the table with two matches remaining.
Speculation was rife that the striker would leave Anfield last year after he went public with his desire to play Champions League football, but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers refused to allow his departure and the striker signed a new long-term contract in December.
Suarez’s performances this term had led to rumours resurfacing of a possible transfer after the World Cup, with Madrid reported to be interested in acquiring his services.
In December, Goal revealed that the Uruguayan’s new deal includes a release clause which can only be triggered by a non-English club.
However, with Liverpool now guaranteed to be in next season’s Champions League, the 27-year-old has spoken of his happiness with life on Merseyside.
“I’m happy with my family. I’m OK with them wherever I am. I’m playing for Liverpool and up next it’s the World Cup. That’s all I’m thinking about. You won’t get anything out of me,” he told Uruguayan television station Canal 10.
Suarez also reiterated his frustration with Liverpool’s defeat to Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday, though he remains optimistic about their chances of winning the Premier League title.
“We knew Manchester City were a difficult rival, but they let you play a lot more than Chelsea do,” he added.
“We knew Chelsea were going to be the most difficult rival in the final few weeks. Chelsea were very tight at the back, very compact. It made life very difficult for us.
“What made me angry was that right from kick-off, they were keen on wasting time. You’d pass them the ball for them to take a throw-in and they’d leave it pass by them.
“Now we just have to wait for Manchester City to drop a point or two because their goal difference is bigger. And we also have to focus on winning everything we have to play for.”
