His future has been the subject of intense speculation with mixed messages emanating from the Uruguay international's camp in recent days.
Suarez indicated he would like to play in Spain earlier in the week before his agent told Sky Sports News the 26-year-old was happy at Anfield.
However, the player has again alluded to his departure, saying: "It's a good moment for a change of environment because of all I've been through in England, where I haven't been judged as a player but based on other things.
"I had a hard time, very hard, and the things that have been said are lies. One has limits and the family also suffers.
"It's nothing against Liverpool, on the contrary, I feel very comfortable at the club but I have a daughter and I do not want her to hear bad things about her father.
"I do not know when I'm going and I do not know if I'm staying.
"If I stay it is because it is a great club but also in turn I know that it is difficult because of the harassment I get from the press.
"They treated me bad and it would be understandable if one day I go to my club (and the media are waiting for him) but I cannot walk my baby, the paparazzi are always there.
"My reason for leaving is not the money. If it were the money I would have left already. My family, my image, that's what matters to me most.
"The coach and some colleagues know that I suffered, I was treated badly and I did not feel comfortable and they know perfectly."
"In England they talk about many things and in some ways I feel uncomfortable."
Real Madrid would obviously offer an escape from that but Suarez insists his reference to the Spanish giants in a radio interview on Wednesday was an understandable but not yet tangible one.
"England and Spain are the best leagues in the world," he said at a national team press conference ahead of a friendly against France on June 5 in Montevideo.
"It is normal that it is impossible to say no to big teams for which one always dreams.
"Yet I have nothing, I have not spoken with Real Madrid nor with Liverpool.
"My agent has not told me anything either and that leaves me alone, but they (the media) are speculating.
"Every time you do something is becomes big. I just said I'm very happy at Liverpool and I'll be forever grateful to this great city and this club made me grow so much, where I still have a contract."
