Liverpool transfers: Luis Suárez committed to the Reds’ future
Liverpool transfers: Luis Suárez says he wants to stay at the Reds despite reported interest from Bayern Munich and Juventus
Luis Suárez has reiterated his desire to stay at Liverpool beyond the summer despite reported interest from Bayern Munich and Juventus.
The Uruguay international had been linked with a possible move at the end of the season after the FA issued Suárez with a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanović.
With Liverpool also failing to secure a top-four finish and Champions League football next season, the 26-year-old was thought to be weighing up his options at the Merseyside outfit.
But Suárez, who has scored 23 Premier League goals this season, has moved to quash speculation surrounding his future and commit to the 18-time English champions.
“I have a deal with Liverpool and this is my present — and future,” Suárez was quoted as saying by the Sun.
Suárez, who penned a new long-term deal with the Reds last August, admitted he was devastated to be missing Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield.
“From the day I arrived, I saw how special this derby is, so it is a pain to miss it,” he added.
“But we have a big squad which can function without me.”
Suárez has scored 50 goals in 95 appearances for the Reds after completing a £22.75m move to Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011.
