Luis Suarez discusses transfer rumours

Luis Suarez (Liverpool)

Luis Suarez has spoken for the first time about rumours suggesting Edinson Cavani attempted to convince him to join him at Paris St Germain, reports the Daily Star.

The Liverpool forward was the subject of a summer long transfer saga, which culminated in the Uruguayan staying at Anfield following two failed bids from Arsenal.

Cavani spoke openly about his international teammates future in the summer, and rumours suggested he had asked Suarez to join him in Paris.

Cavani only made the switch to Ligue 1 in the summer for a fee of £54million, but Suarez has claimed that was the only thing the pair discussed whilst on international duty.

When asked about the rumours, the 26-year-old confirmed: “No. He said he is happy in Paris.

“He is happy with the big club he has discovered, his team-mates and the way football is in France.

“He asked me a lot about it because it is very different from what I know in England.”

Suarez’s desire to quit Anfield infuriated Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, who ordered his star striker to train alone during the summer.

But Suarez has declared that is now in the past, claiming the support from his teammates and the Liverpool fans has made him feel at home once more.

“When I was separated (from the squad), the players told me they didn’t like that and wanted me to be with the group,” he said.

“Today I feel very supported by my team-mates, and I appreciate their support.

“The support of the fans was also very important … I feel part of things at Liverpool. It is my home.”
