Luis Suarez says he is committed to Liverpool and is going nowhere this summer, playing down speculation he could leave for Real Madrid this summer.
The 27-year-old Uruguayan signed a new contract with the club in December, just months after trying to force an exit, unhappy at the club’s lack of involvement in the Champions League.
But a brilliant 2013/14 campaign for the club, which could still see them crowned Premier League champions, saw them qualify for next season’s Champions League, with big European nights returning to Anfield.
“Don’t worry, nothing is going to happen to me,” Suarez is quoted on Sky Sports as telling Uruguayan TV channel Canal 10. “I’m very happy here and my family is happy here.
“If we could win the Premier League and bring the trophy home it would be incredible, a dream come true.”

Liverpool look set to rely on Manchester City dropping points in their final three games of the season, as well as beating Crystal Palace and Newcastle in their final two to win the league title.
The Reds were left frustrated when they went down 2-0 to Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday, ending an 11-match winning streak.
“We couldn’t find spaces, we made a mistake and it was hard to deal with,” Suarez added.
“We knew the game was going to be hard and tight. We all got nervous and lost control.
“We are hoping Man City lose some points but in the Premier League you never know – anything is possible. Now we have to win the next two games and it is not going to be easy.”
Earlier this week, Brendan Rodgers admitted that qualifying for the Champions League was key to keeping Suarez at Anfield.

The Northern Irishman said on Sky Sports of the PFA Player of the Year, “That was key to it. That’s what he was missing.
“A player of Luis Suarez’s ability has to be playing at this level.”
Suarez has notched up 30 goals in 31 appearances this season for Liverpool.
