Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from the club this summer.
The Uruguay international penned a new four-and-a-half year contract in December. He denied there is a clause in the contract which allows him to join Real Madrid or Barcelona this summer.
“There is no clause that suggests a priority for a specific team,” Suarez said.
“My head now is focused on the World Cup. My agent tells me what’s there. It’s more speculation than reality.”
Suarez was on the verge of quitting the ‘Reds’ last summer, but Liverpool insisted he was not for sale after Arsenal tabled a bid of 40m + £1 intended to trigger a release clause they thought existed in his contract.
Suarez stayed with the Marseyside outfit and went on to enjoy a memorable season.
He claimed the PFA Players’ and FWA Player of the Year, as well as the Barclays Player of the Season with 31 goals from 33 games, after missing the first six matches of the previous season- part of his ten-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.
Uruguay will battle Costa Rica, England and Italy in Group D of the 2014 Fifa World Cup, and Suarez is part of his nation’s provisional squad for the tournament.
