Luis Suarez has claimed that the Premier League is an attractive proposition, with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur mentioned as potential destinations.
The Ajax striker had an incredible season in Holland, scoring over 50 goals in all competitions, alerting some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The Uruguayan also netted three goals at the World Cup, although he hit the headlines more for his deliberate handball against Ghana in the quarter-finals.
Suarez has read numerous rumours about his transfer all year and has given them creedence by stating his desire to play in England.
“I am not going to make any secret for the Premier League,” Suarez told the Daily Star.
“What I love about it is the fact that there are five or six Champions League quality teams in the league – and no other league in the world boasts that.
“When you look at the players Manchester City and Liverpool have, like Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard, Javier Mascherano, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor and see they are playing UEFA Cup and not Champions League football, it tells you everything you need to know about the strength of the league.
“I know I have had a very good World Cup and with that naturally comes interest from other clubs.
“If a Premier League side comes in for me, it will be difficult for Ajax to keep me and I think they are fully aware of that.”
Suarez has heard stories linking him with Manchester United and Spurs and has seemingly invited them to make an offer.
“Manchester United are a great side and, along with Real Madrid, are the most prestigious club in the World.
“You know if you join Manchester United and are there for any length of time, you will win things.
“Tottenham hold appeal as well though, they are a great team with great ambition and have done well to reach the Champions League.
“I like a team that have shown ambition through the money they spend.
“If there are multiple offers from the Premier League, I will take time to decide – but at the moment they are the two clubs that stand out for me.”
