Suarez Reveals He Turned Down Offers From Others Clubs Before Joining Barcelona

The Uruguay international joined Barcelona from Liverpool earlier in the summer.

Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed that he turned down offers from other clubs in order to join Barcelona, Goal.com reports.

The controversial striker cannot play a competitive game for Barcelona until October because of a four month ban he received for biting Girogio Chiellini at the World Cup.

Despite being one of the most controversial players in world football, Suarez said that other teams were interested in signing him but he rejected them because it was his dream to play for Barcelona.

“When we had contact [with Barcelona] and knew of their interest, I did not hesitate for a moment because it was my dream, my desire,” he stated in an interview with Barca Fans. “I rejected other options because my dream was to play here”.

The 27 year old also revealed that he has always enjoyed watching Barcelona play and feels he has reached the pinnacle of his career by arriving at the Spanish giants.

“After many years in Europe, first at Ajax and then Liverpool, my career had been growing and now it has reached its pinnacle by being at the best team in the world.

“I want to win the titles that [I watched Barca win] from a distance for years. I always enjoyed watching the players here, who are now my team-mates.”
