Real Madrid target Luis Suarez appeals Liverpool to respect his transfer wishes
Luis Suarez has delivered a plea to the Anfield occupants in an attempt to win their favor over leaving Liverpool this summer. The former Ajax forward wishes to leave the club for the opportunity to play at Real Madrid.
The Uruguayan striker has been strongly linked with a switch to Real Madrid, especially after the president Florentino Perez recognized him to be on Real Madrid’s wish-list.
Luis Suarez has made a couple of statements regarding his departure from Liverpool in the past couple of months. The 26-year-old has blamed his exit from the Premier League upon the Football Association and the English media. Luis Suarez claims the regulatory body and the press have portrayed him as an antagonist in the misfortunes he has experienced the Premier League.
Unfortunately, Luis Suarez has been part of a couple of controversial occurrences since moving into Liverpool. The Uruguay international has been convicted of racial abuse, diving, and more recently received a 10-match ban for biting another player.
In less than two years at Liverpool, Luis Suarez has managed to make a ton of enemies in England. The English media are probably on top of the list, closely followed by Manchester United and Chelsea.
Liverpool have repeatedly announced that Luis Suarez in not for sale, but interest from top notch clubs in Europe continue to test their resolve. Luis Suarez’s contract with Liverpool runs until 2017, which means any club wishing to acquire his services will have to pay a hefty amount for his services.
Luis Suarez is presently for Uruguay at the Confederations Cup in Brazil. The striker claims he might be away, but he would still have a say over his future.
“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,” Luis Suarez 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.”
Luis Suarez was signed in from Ajax for £22.8 million during the January transfer window in 2011. The forward, who has become one of the favorite sons of the Kop, insists his love for Liverpool is undying, but he has to travel abroad now.
“The love I have for Liverpool, I will never forget. I 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,” Luis Suarez added.
“There are moments of importance [during matches] and I have lived football in a very particular way since childhood. But I know I can play tricks,” Luis Suarez said, whilst admitting he has had on-field problems. “Sometimes I protest too much to the referee. I have to take it a bit better.”
