Luis Suarez has moved to dismiss rumours linking the Liverpool striker with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester City, insisting he is happy on Merseyside and envisions remaining at Anfield for many years, the BBC
It had been suggested in the press on Thursday that City were preparing a big money offer for the Uruguay international as Roberto Mancini attempted to bolster the defence of the title won in dramatic fashion last season. But Suarez insisted he would not leave Liverpool in January, nor in the foreseeable future.
In a statement released on Liverpool’s official website, Suarez said: “It’s about enjoying myself and trying to be here for as many years as I can. I’m at a club where I’m very happy, my family is happy, I’ve got fantastic team-mates and a manager from whom I’m learning so much. I’m at a club where I’ve always wanted to be.”
Arriving in England in January 2011, a £22m purchase from Ajax, Suarez signed a contract extension at Liverpool over the summer and has started the season in prolific style, scoring 11 goals in 16 games. By contrast, in the rest of his Liverpool career as a whole Suarez has managed only 20 goals in 52 games.
