Luis Suarez says Liverpool is a 'fantastic club' but has not ruled out moving on

Striker Luis Suarez admits he does not know what his future holds and while he insists he is very happy to be at a "spectacular" club like Liverpool he also considers the time may be right for "change of environment".

With the Reds' failure to qualify for the Champions League again the Uruguay international's future has been the subject of much speculation.

That increased when the 26-year-old gave an interview to a radio station in his homeland in which he suggested he could not ignore approach from Spanish giants Real.

His agent Pere Guardiola has intimated the striker was content at Liverpool and the player has reaffirmed that himself, although he has far from ruled out an Anfield exit

"I do not know when I'm going and I do not know if I'm staying," said Suarez at a national team press conference ahead of a friendly against France on June 5 in Montevideo.

"Obviously the club want me to stay, but I've talked to the coach (Brendan Rodgers) and he knows what I want.

"He was a player and my team-mates understand that my situation is difficult.

"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 have only words of thanks to the club, the fans of Liverpool, but the treatment I received from the rest of England in recent weeks has been tough.

"It (Liverpool) is a spectacular club, but they are aware of the way that the press treats me".
