Transfer news: Liverpool striker Luis Suarez remains keen on Real Madrid move

Unsettled Liverpool star Luis Suarez has reiterated his desire to leave Anfield for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The Uruguay striker claims his love for the club is outweighed by what he perceives as unfair treatment from the Football Association and the English media. Suarez, who has six matches of a 10-match domestic ban still to serve for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April, has yet to submit an official transfer request. But the 26-year-old has reiterated his desire to join Real Madrid and says his aspirations should be key to any decision over his future. "First I have a contract with the club, but if one day I want to sign (for another club), Liverpool will hear the offer, as it does with other players," Suarez was quoted as telling Spanish newspaper Marca. "They must agree with other teams, but the word of the player, in this case mine, is important. If you need a change, you should listen to the player. "Every player aspires (to be the best) and if you ask a child of eight years they would say one day they would go to Real Madrid or Barcelona." Suarez, who signed a new contract last summer and has four years of his current deal left to run, has claimed manager Brendan Rodgers is aware of his desire to leave. But Liverpool disputed that in a statement released last month and said they expected their star man to honour his contract.
