Luis Suarez insists his full focus is on winning the Confederations Cup for Uruguay, despite continuing speculation over his club future.

The striker has strongly hinted that he will look to leave Liverpool during the close season, with the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich believed to be interested in signing him.

Suarez, who is currently serving a Premier League suspension following a biting incident last season, has been quoted as saying that the media may force him to leave England.

But for now, the 26-year-old is concentrating on his international duties, with his country one of eight teams taking part in the summer tournament.

Suarez told a press conference: “Here I come to play for Uruguay and not thinking what I can do to benefit a transfer. My only goal is to win the cup.”

Uruguay are drawn in Group B for the two-week tournament in Brazil, along with Spain, Nigeria and Tahiti.

The 2010 World Cup semi-finalists start their campaign on Sunday evening, when they take on world champions Spain.

Suarez added that “for now there is nothing” in relation to any possible transfer and there was no deadline, although he admitted “family issues” might edge him towards a move to Spain.
