Suarez keen to extend Anfield stay
Luis Suarez insists Liverpool can still qualify for next season's Champions League and is keen to talk about a contract extension
Luis Suarez has admitted he wants Champions League football, but the Uruguayan is confident he can achieve that with Liverpool.
Suarez has a contract at Liverpool which runs until 2018, but he has been subject of constant speculation linking him with a move away from the club.
Bayern Munich's boss in waiting, Pep Guardiola, is keen to bring Suarez to Germany, whilst there has been interest in England with Manchester City linked with a big-money move for the 26-year-old striker.
Suarez, however, is keen to sit down with Liverpool and open discussions regarding extending his contract with the Anfield giants.
Asked by Spanish radio station Marca if Liverpool should talk about his future in the summer, he said: "Yes, we should talk this June or the next one, in 2014. My contract ends in 2018.
"I'm very happy here and my family love the life here too.
"I want to enjoy being at this club where I, like all the kids, dreamed of playing and now I'm fulfilling that dream."
Suarez accepts that whilst Liverpool have been a shadow of their former selves in recent years, Brendan Rodgers has set about bringing the glory days back to Anfield - and they are showing signs of revival under the former Swansea manager.
"I'm very pleased and very happy because Liverpool is growing.
"It's not the team that it once was as they have had a dip but now we have a new coach, who has a philosophy of the game with which the players are very happy.
"The only thing missing is to have more positive results so we can finish in a Champions League spot.
"We would like to qualify for the Champions League if possible.
"We are young and growing as a team and when the players mature, we will be stronger."
Liverpool have failed to beat any team in the top ten thus far this season but after impressive 2-2 draws with both Arsenal and Manchester City in recent games, Suarez believes there is cause for optimism.
"We showed we can match anyone - we had chances to win many of those matches," he said.
"If we go into every game in the Premier League with the same intensity that we've shown in the big matches we can be much higher in the table."
