Luis Suarez has confirmed he wants to leave Liverpool this summer after becoming disillusioned with life in the Premier League and England.

The Anfield superstar was speaking to press while away on international duty with Uruguay and gave the biggest hint yet that he was on his way out of Liverpool.

Earlier this week saw him allude to being open to a Real Madrid move but his agent then told Sky Sports his client was happy on Merseyside.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has expressed a desire to hang to Suarez on more than one occasion, so he will be dismayed by the latest comments from the 26-year-old.

"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 is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

Suarez was adamant that he did not have an issue with Liverpool as a club and insisted he was happy playing for them and the fans at Anfield.

The problem, he claimed, was with his treatment in the press since he joined the Reds from Ajax in 2011.

Suarez’s reputation has taken a battering after he was handed long-term suspensions for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra and biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the shoulder.

“I had a hard time, very hard, and the things that have been said are lies. One has limits and the family also suffers,” he added.

"It's nothing against Liverpool, on the contrary, I feel very comfortable at the club, but I have a daughter and I do not want to hear bad things about her father."

"I do not know when I'm going and I do not know if I'm staying.

"If I stay it is because it is a great club but also in turn I know that it is difficult because of the harassment I get from the press.

"They treated me bad and it would be understandable if one day I go to my club (and the media are waiting for him) but I cannot walk my baby, the paparazzi are always there.

"My family, my image - that's what matters to me most. The coach and some colleagues know that I suffered, I was treated badly and I did not feel comfortable and they know perfectly."

"In England they talk about many things and in some ways I feel uncomfortable."
