Suarez admits he wants to leave Liverpool
- Updated: May 31, 2013
Chelsea target Luis Suarez has dropped a massive hint that he is ready to leave Liverpool this summer.
Suarez has been tracked by a number of clubs, and we revealed earlier in the week that Chelsea were plotting a £50million bid for the striker.
The Uruguay international suggested that he would relish the opportunity to play in Spain , however it is believed that Chelsea are still waiting in the wings to sign the player.
The 26-year-old spoke about his future and said, “It’s a good moment for a change of environment because of all I’ve been through in England, where I haven’t been judged as a player but based on other things
He confirmed that he’s future isn’t in the balance, and even he does not know where he will be playing his football next season: “I do not know when I’m going and I do not know if I’m staying
Suarez suggested that the media is the reason why he is considering a move away from Anfield, which will be dealt as a massive blow to Chelsea.
He said, “In England they talk about many things and in some ways I feel uncomfortable.”
Incoming manager Jose Mourinho is in the market for a striker at Chelsea as they are hoping to send Romelu Lukaku out on another season long loan.
The Portuguese manager is reluctant to get Fernando Torres and Demba Ba as his main strikers, and is hoping that he can convince Suarez to stay in the Premier League.
Suarez scored 23 goals in 33 appearances in the Premier League last season, however still has 6 games left on his 10 match ban.
The player was banned at the end of last season following his bite on possible future team mate Branislav Ivanovic.
The Uruguayan has been at the centre of controversy since his move from Ajax, as he has been banned previously for racial comments and is often criticised for diving.
This has not put off Mourinho from signing the player as he is see’s Suarez as an ideal signing and will still be hoping that he wants to stay in England.
Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers, however it was revealed yesterday that Mourinho’s first job to do at Chelsea is to sort out the future of captain John Terry.
Terry has one year left on his contract, and “The Special One” has been set the task of tying down the defender on a long-term deal.
The former England captain fell down the pecking order whilst Rafa Benitez was in charge, as he preferred the partnership of Gary Cahill and David Luiz..
Meanwhile Terry has also suffered a series of injuries over the past year and is rumoured to be interested in move to America to finish his career.
Chelsea have also recently emerged as contenders for Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic, but they face tough competition from Arsenal who have been tracking the player since April.
