Luis Suarez “dreams” of playing for Real Madrid or Barcelona one day, according to former Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli.

The Uruguay international’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent days after he was suspended for four months for biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

Both of the Spanish clubs have been touted as destinations for the 27-year-old – and Comolli claims that Suarez is keen to play in La Liga at some point.

“Speaking to Luis before, and during, the World Cup, he’s always said he is very happy at Liverpool,” Comolli told talkSPORT.

“But, during our time together at Anfield, he told me that his dream is to play in Spain at one point in his career, especially at Barcelona or Real Madrid.

“His wife’s family live in Spain, he’s in Barcelona every time he gets a couple of days off and has a house there.

“I’ve always thought in my mind, and I told Kenny Dalglish at the time, that, if either of the big Spanish two came in and tried to get him, Liverpool would have a hard time to try and keep him.”
