The striker was quoted as telling a Uruguayan radio station this week that it would be "very difficult" to turn down Real, fuelling talk of his impending exit.
Stories have also appeared in the Spanish press that Suarez had already put pen to paper setting up his departure from Anfield.
Bernabeu president Florentino Perez gave the story further credence when he admitted Suarez, along with Tottenham's Gareth Bale, was on his radar.
But the player's agent, Pere Guardiola, has told Sky Sports News' chief news reporter, Bryan Swanson, that the forward remains "happy" at Liverpool, has no plans to leave in this summer's transfer window and that reports of a deal agreed are not true.
Suarez signed a long-term deal at Anfield last year and scored 30 goals in 44 appearances last season, but was also banned for 10 games for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
The 26-year-old, who moved to Merseyside from Ajax in 2011, has previously expressed his frustration at perceived criticism from the English media.
His suspension for biting Ivanovic came 16 months after he received an eight-match ban after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
