Liverpool transfers: Luis Suárez pleads with Reds to "listen" to him should Real Madrid or Barcelona come calling for his services
Luis Suárez has pleaded with Liverpool to “listen” to him should Real Madrid or Barcelona come calling for his services this summer.
The 26-year-old’s future has been a source of constant speculation since the striker declared his desire to leave Anfield in search of a “change of environment” – despite Liverpool insisting he is not for sale.
Suárez, who scored 23 league goals last season but is currently serving a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, has been touted as a possible target for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in recent weeks.
And the forward has asked the Merseyside club to take his viewpoint into consideration should one of the La Liga giants make a bid for him in the coming weeks.
“First I have a contract with the club, but if one day I want to sign [for another club], Liverpool will hear the offer, as it does with other players,” Suárez told Marca.
“They must agree with other teams, but the word of the player, in this case mine, is important. If you need a change, you should listen to the player.
“Every player aspires [to be the best] and if you ask a child of eight years they would say one day they would go to Real Madrid or Barcelona.”
He added: “The love I have for Liverpool I will never forget. ” love the city, the club and the people and everyone is welcome. All I ask is for respect for all the things that have been said.”
