Luis Suarez has reaffirmed his commitment to Liverpool and rejected suggestions he has spoken to either Barcelona or Real Madrid regarding a summer transfer.
The 25-year-old was the club's top scorer last term, but the Reds' failure to qualify for Champions League football for a third season in succession has seen Suarez linked with a move away from Anfield.
Suarez's stay with Liverpool has also been marred by the eight-game ban he received following the race row with Patrice Evra, while Sir Alex Ferguson urged the Reds to part company with the Uruguay international.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have both been linked with Suarez, but he has allayed any fears Liverpool fans may have by denying any contact with the Spanish giants.
“Being honest, I have never talked to anyone from Barca or Real Madrid," Suarez told the Liverpool Daily Post. "If the rumours are to be believed I would have already played for 20 teams.
“Liverpool have had a good season and we got to two cup finals.
“In the Premier League we did not finish as high as expected, but positive things have been taken.
“Liverpool is a 10/10 club for the support they give the players. I am very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to play in the Premiership.”
Suarez has scored 21 goals in 52 appearances for Liverpool since moving to Anfield from Ajax for £24 million in the January transfer window of 2010.
