Liverpool starlet Suso has revealed how he turned down a big money move to Real Madrid in favour of a move to the Premier League, reports the London Metro.

The 18-year-old Spaniard is currently enjoying a breakthrough campaign after moving to Merseyside from minnows Cadiz in 2009, and is widely regarded as one of the club's brightest young prospects.

Brendan Rodgers has made clear his intention to give opportunities to a number of Anfield's upcoming stars, with Suso featuring as a substitute in each of Liverpool's last three games in league and cup competitions.

But, it could have turned out differently for the talented teenager, who revealed in an interview with Cope earlier this week that he nearly ended up signing at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I had agreed on a contract with Real Madrid, and the transfer was basically done," he explained. "But, then Rafael Benitez called me and told me he had a lot of confidence in me and that I should go to Liverpool.

"I'm glad I made this decision. I love this club and it is the best for me."

Suso's commitment to the Anfield cause will come as a welcome boost to Rodgers, who is reportedly weighing up offering new contracts to a number of his emerging stars in a bid to stave off interest from any rival clubs.

The protege is now fully focused on making it at Liverpool and is continuing to work hard on the training ground to earn more involvement with the first-team.

"I have never thought about going," he added. "I feel comfortable here and no intention of ever leaving."
