Liverpool striker Luis Suarez admits he still hopes to come to a "friendly" resolution with the club over his transfer saga.

Suarez also revealed he is prepared to ignore pleas from Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard to stay as he set his heart on playing for a club in the Champions League. "Gerrard has a lot of history with Liverpool and his words are very important but everyone should understand that I need to play the Champions League to keep growing as a footballer," added Suarez. "Now I have the chance, I want to take it. "A Champions League team (Arsenal) is making a big effort to get me and one always wants to be where they feel comfortable." Real Madrid have been credited with an interest in Suarez and the former Ajax man admits he would jump at the chance of joining the Spanish giants "There were a lot of rumours (about Real) that were different to reality: Madrid never called me personally or Liverpool to try and negotiate," continued Suarez. "Every player aspires to reach the top and Real Madrid is among the most important clubs in the world. It would be very difficult to say no to Real Madrid."
