Luis Suarez future: Striker to remain at Liverpool despite possible Real Madrid offer
The Uruguay international came close to an exit from Anfield last summer
Luis Suarez has reportedly told his Liverpool team-mates he wants to win the Premier League at Anfield, indicating the striker sees his future with the Reds.
After coming close to an exit last summer and then going on to be the stand-out player of the season speculation over his future is inevitable.
Real Madrid are long-time admirers of the former Ajax player and could be willing to table a bid in excess of the world record £86m they shelled out for Gareth Bale. However, any such move appears dependent on whether Real Madrid retain the services of Karim Benzema. If the French forward, a target for Arsenal, remains at the Bernabeu Suarez's services would not be deemed neccessary by the Champions League winners.
In a further indication that Suarez expects to be at Anfield next season are reports that the 27-year-old has enrolled his daughter in a new school on Merseyside.
Suarez, who will face England at the World Cup in Brazil if he recovers from knee surgery in time, only signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool in December.
