Uruguay forward feels he will not get the chance to compete in Europe’s premier club competition while on Merseyside.
Want-away Liverpool front man Luis Suarez has finally revealed the real reason as to why he is so determined to leave the Reds this summer, and it is because he is determined to play in the Uefa Champions League next season, says BBC Sport.
The controversial Uruguay international has been the subject of intense speculation recently linking the player with a £40 million transfer out of Anfield when the window reopened at the start of July.
The 26-year-old made it clear that he wanted to leave the club to join Spanish giants Real Madrid while recently away on international duty with his country at the Fifa Confederations Cup in Brazil, although the centre forward claimed it was due to interference in his private life from the English press.
However, the real reason for Suarez wanting to sign for Los Blancos has now been revealed after the player’s agent, Pere Guardiola, met with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and managing director Ian Ayre at Melwood on Monday, with the Spaniard informing the duo that his client was desperate to play in Europe’s premier club competition next season.
Suarez has so far registered an eye-catching 51 goals and 24 assists for the Merseyside giants in just 96 matches in all competitions since arriving at Liverpool from Ajax in Jan 2011.
