Luis Suarez has revealed he "suffered a lot" with Liverpool to get his dream move to Barcelona in the summer of 2014. The Uruguay international admitted he always wanted to play for the Champions League winners and he is enjoying his time at the Nou Camp so much he would not leave even if his wages were tripled.
Suarez attracted the attention of Luis Enrique after becoming the joint top goalscorer in Europe in the 2013/14 season, netting 31 goals in 33 Premier League appearances. Barcelona accordingly paid Liverpool around £65m ($98m) to secure his services, despite him being unable to play for the first three months of the season due to a ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup.
Suarez has said that playing for the Catalan giants was always his dream and he hopes to stay there for many years.
"I have suffered a lot to end up Barcelona. This is the club where I always wanted to play," Suarez told Spanish reporters, as quoted by Sport. "I would not leave even if another club offered me three times my current wages. My family is happy and a departure is impossible. I aim to stay at Barcelona for many more years."
The former Liverpool star has become a pivotal player for the Catalan giants, forming an impressive trio with Lionel Messi and Neymar as well as helping his side to win the Champions League, La Liga and the Copa del Rey treble in his first season at the club.
Messi has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp amid the struggling economic situation of the club and his problems with the Spanish tax authorities. Suarez, nevertheless, believes that the Argentine's future is secured.
"In my opinion, it is impossible that Messi will ever leave the club. He is happy, enjoying himself and his family is happy as well," he added. "Obviously, you never know what happens in football, but everything is going perfect right now. Of course, I want him to stay."
