Liverpool striker Luis Suarez speaks out again, claiming the time could be right for a 'change of environment'

The Uruguayan suggested earlier this week he would be interested in a move to Real Madrid

Striker Luis Suarez did little to allay Liverpool's fears over losing their prize asset after admitting the time may be right for “change of environment”.

The 26-year-old's future has been the subject of much speculation and with mixed messages are still emanating from the Uruguay international's camp the player himself did little to quell speculation.

Suarez is unhappy with the treatment he has received from the British press, which he claims is now affecting his family, and admits that may prove to be a decisive factor.

"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 said.

"I had a hard time, very hard, in the things that have been said are lies. One has limits and the family also suffers.

"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.

"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.

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

"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."

Real Madrid would obviously offer an escape from that but Suarez insists his reference to the Spanish giants in a radio interview on Wednesday was an understandable but not yet tangible one.

"England and Spain are the best leagues in the world," he said at a national team press conference ahead of a friendly against France on June 5 in Montevideo.

"It is normal that it is impossible to say no to big teams for which one always dreams.

"Yet I have nothing, I have not spoken with Real Madrid nor with Liverpool.

"My agent has not told me anything either and that leaves me alone, but they (the media) are speculating.

"Every time you do something is becomes big. I just said I'm very happy at Liverpool and I'll be forever grateful to this great city and this club made me grow so much, where I still have a contract."
