Liverpool star Luis Suarez has cooled rumours suggesting that Uruguay teammate Edinson Cavani spoke to him about the possibility of joining Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
26-year-old Suarez was the subject of a protracted and tiresome saga during the transfer window, with the controversial but gifted striker making little secret of his desire to leave Anfield in order to seek Champions League football.
Real Madrid and Arsenal - the latter of whom reportedly failed with a bid of just over £40 million for the former Ajax star after appearing to misunderstand a particularly ambiguous clause in the player's contract - appeared to be the frontrunners for Suarez's signature, however speculation also suggested that he had spoken with Cavani about a move to the French capital while the two were on international duty.
Cavani himself made the move to the Stade de Gerland prior to the start of the current campaign, costing Laurent Blanc's wealthy outfit a mammoth £55 million from Serie A title hopefuls Napoli.
Suarez has dismissed such talk, however, and instead claimed that he and Cavani only spoke about the way the game is played across the channel.
"He said he is happy in Paris. He is happy with the big club he has discovered, his team-mates and the way football is in France.
"He asked me a lot about it because it is very different from what I know in England," he added.
Suarez, who has been in formidable form since returning from a 10-match ban earlier this season and has formed a prosperous partnership with England star Daniel Sturridge, continues to be linked with a switch away from Anfield.
Recent rumours have suggested that La Liga giants Real are planning a move of cash plus Karim Benzema for Suarez in January, in a deal that would be worth a reported total of £40 million.
