Liverpool's Luis Suarez comments on Real Madrid rumours

Luis Suarez Free Kick V Zenit

Owned by Liverpool, wanted by Arsenal, now Real Madrid want a piece, but bet on Luis Suarez staying put.

For now it seems like Luis Suarez is truly happy with his football, and it is showing on the pitch.

He faces the side which tried to sign him tomorrow when Liverpool take on Arsenal, and few would bet against him finding the back of the net.

Real Madrid are the other side on the radar, said to be looking for a striker in January, with rumours this week that they wanted to offer £20 million plus Karim Benzema for the Uruguayan.

However if Liverpool fans are remotely worried that Suarez is angling for a transfer behind the scenes, as he did so publicly this summer, his latest comments should put minds at rest.

He was quizzed by Radio 890 in Uruguay about several topics ahead of the weekend's match, including his tips for the Ballon d'Or.

"It is an honor to be on the list of 23 chosen by FIFA , but I think there are several players who have had a year much more prominent, If I had to choose I would go for Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ribery."

Asked about how he feels at Liverpool, he responded, 'comfortable and well', adding the Premier League is 'is the best there is, for the stadiums, the atmosphere and the people that make it spectacular.'

Wow, this certainly does not sound like the Suarez who said he disliked life in England early in the summer. 

Bale - £86m, Ronaldo - £80m, Liverpool's Luis Suarez - priceless

Asked about interest from Real Madrid, he said he knew 'absolutely nothing', about the speculation.

And if that wasn't music to Liverpool fans' ears, he added: "In the team we all really excited, looking forward and look forward to a good season."

It's just what supporters will want to hear, and should stub out any discussion that he will want to move on. Brendan Rodgers deserves huge credit for helping turn his attitude around.

What do you think of his comments? Is Suarez at Anfield for the long haul?
