Montevideo – Liverpool striker, Luis Suarez, has again hinted that his time at the club may have run out during a media briefing for the Uruguay national team in Montevideo.

Sky Sports’ website is reporting that the troubled striker indicated again that he feels persecuted by the British media and that he feels it is a good time for a change of scenery.

"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."

He reassured supporters of Liverpool, that if he should depart, it is no reflection on his feelings towards the club, rather, that external factors are influencing his decision.

"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 to hear bad things about her father."

"I do not know when I'm going and I do not know if I'm staying,” he added.

"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.”

Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Suarez recently, with Suarez admitting it would be hard to turn down an offer from the Spanish giants.

The speculation was fuelled by Galacticos president, Florentino Perez confirming his admiration for the striker, saying that he wouldn’t mind seeing him join the club, however, no approach for him has yet been made.

"England and Spain are the best leagues in the world," said Suarez.

"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."
