Luis Suarez

Liverpool star Luis Suarez has denied having a special €70m clause in his contract set to be triggered should Real Madrid or Barcelona try to sign him in the summer.

The Uruguayan international signed a new deal at Anfield earlier this season to commit his future to the club.

But Spanish newspaper El Confidencial claims Suarez asked Liverpool to include a special €70m buy-out clause in case Real Madrid or Barcelona tried to secure his services. But Suarez has rubbished the reports claiming the clause does not exist.

"I have not signed any clause where a team (Madrid or Barca) have priority to sign me," Suarez was quoted by AS.

"I know I did a good season and there is speculation in the press but now I'm focused on the World Cup."

Having been awarded with the Premier League player of the year, Suarez now hopes that Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't score any goals in Real Madrid latest La Liga game so he can also win the Golden Boot – the pair are now currently tied on top of the goal-scorers' chart after having both scored 31 domestic league goals this season for their respective clubs.

"I hope Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't' score more goals. He is one of the best in the world and we are fighting for the Golden Boot but I am not going to get crazy if he scores."

Asked about Liverpool's season he said: "We made a spectacular year."

"People did not expected we finished where we finished (second). At the end we lost some points and we didn't get the title. But there are many young players in the squad who are going to grow a lot at Liverpool."

Suarez also claims that Spain is the favourite to win the World Cup even though he hopes to do his best with Uruguay.

"Spain is obviously the favourite because they are the current champions but also Germany, Argentina or Brazil..." he added.

"The World Cup is the competition that you dream to win as a child and now I have the opportunity to fulfil that dream. In a World Cup you never know what can happen, we will try to do our best."
