Luis Suarez transfer latest: Liverpool striker denies Real Madrid or Barcelona clause in his contract
Striker says his focus is now on the World Cup after successful season
Luis Suarez has denied reports that he has a clause in his contract to allow talks with Real Madrid and Barcelona if they bid a certain amount, reported to be £70m.
The Liverpool striker signed a new four-and-a-half year deal at the end of last year, and when asked at an event for 888 Poker if he had a clause that would let him leave for one of the Spanish giants if they make an offer, Suarez replied: "I didn't sign any contract with clauses prioritising a certain team."
The Uruguay striker, who scored 31 Premier League goals for the second-placed club last season says he "turns the page" every time he reads a story linking him with a move away from Anfield.
"I turn the page … you know what the press is like, how they speculate, and you try to not take any notice. I know what I want. My agent tells me what's there and what's not. It's more speculation than reality."
Suarez says his sole focus now is on next month's World Cup, which includes a match against England on 19 June.
"I had a very good season with Liverpool but now I am focused on the World Cup.
"Everyone remembers the last World Cup we won in Brazil [in 1950]. But that is the past. I don't know if it was a miracle, in football you never know what will happen.
"Our group is one of the most difficult. We will go forward thinking in each game as it comes."
