Liverpool striker Suarez welcomes interest from Champions League teams
Luis Suarez has admitted he would be interested in speaking this summer with teams who have qualified for next season’s Champions League, amid interest from Bayern Munich and Juventus, despite confirming he is content at Liverpool, the Daily Mail has reported.
The Reds are currently seventh in the Premier League and in danger of missing out on European football altogether, but Suarez is attracting attention from some of the continent’s biggest clubs after a goal-laden season. Thus far the Uruguayan has netted 29 times, 22 in the league, and has a contract that runs until 2017.
Suarez said he is happy to remain at Anfield but if an offer comes in from a Champions League team then he would like to hear what they have to say. He told the Liverpool Echo: “If another team comes around with more prospects of competing in international club competition games, which is willing to have me, they are welcome. We would talk to the club, we would see if I want to go, if I don’t want to go.”
Suarez’s current contract runs until 2017 and the former Ajax forward insists he is willing to wait and see how Brendan Rodgers succeeds at Liverpool, praising the former Swansea City manager for his first season in charge.
“A player’s ambition is always there, the ambition of wanting to play in elite teams is always there,” Suarez said. “I’m in a world-class team, an elite team like Liverpool.
“We have to realise we have a new manager who is imposing a philosophy and a way of playing that the players are adapting to as best we can. We hope that it will bear fruit next year.”
