Luis Suarez denies having any special clause in his new contract with Liverpool that favours bids from any particular team.

The 27-year old signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract with Liverpool in December last year, ending uncertainty about his future.

Suarez was in scintillating form in the last league campaign for the Reds, scoring 31 goals and providing 21 assists in 33 league appearances as his side finished as runners-up.

Now Suarez has scoffed at the speculation that suggests that there is a clause in his contract that favours bids from any particular team or teams.


"There is no clause that suggests a priority for a specific team", the Uruguayan hitman was quoted as saying by the BBC.

The former Ajax hitman insists that his focus is only on Uruguay’s World Cup campaign this summer and dismissed all speculation about imaginary clauses.

"My head now is focused on the World Cup.

"My agent tells me what's there. It's more speculation than reality."

Suarez has been named in Uruguay’s 30-man provisional World Cup squad and is a shoe-in to make the final 23 that will fly to Brazil this summer.

Uruguay won their last World Cup in 1950 on Brazilian soil by beating the home side 2-1 at the Estadio do Maracana, Rio de Janeiro.
