Luis Suarez revealed that constant criticism and negative messages may make him move to Real Madrid.
The Uruguayan striker has developed into one of the best in the Premier League, but his controversial decisions have resulted in several bans and fines.
Now that he is linked to a move to the Spanish capital, Suarez finally admitted that he would be open to leave.
In an interview with a local radio station in Uruguay, the 26-year-old claimed that the attention he garners may force him to work elsewhere.
“I’m happy at Liverpool, I’m happy because of the fans. I made a mistake, I’m human, but they’ve talked about me in ways they shouldn’t have,” Suarez said.
“My family have suffered and things got out of hand. My daughter and my wife have suffered. I’m not prepared to continue to put up with the English press.
“I love Liverpool, but if there is a chance of playing somewhere else…I suffered too much as a kid to get where I am to be attacked unfairly by the English press. They haven’t appreciated me as a player, they’ve just judged my attitude.
“I’ve talked to my agent, there’s nothing concrete. To say no to Madrid would always be difficult and more so with the team they have.
“I have a contract with Liverpool, but it would be very difficult to say no to Real Madrid. There are a lot of rumours in the transfer period, but you never know until firm offers are made.
“I’ve talked to the coach [Brendan Rodgers], and he knows what I want. He was a player. Some of the players understand my situation – enough said.”
After being banned for 10 games for biting Branislav Ivanovic in their 2-2 draw against Chelsea, Suarez is set to miss the first six league matches in the coming Premier League campaign.
