'Tired' Suarez Interested in Real Madrid

In a radio interview, Luis Suarez said that he and his family are being treated unfairly by the British press and admitted that it would be “difficult to say no” to Real Madrid. The Liverpool striker, who still has six games of a 10-game ban to serve when next season starts, told Uruguayan radio station Radio sport 890: "It would be very difficult to say no to Real Madrid," adding that he was "not prepared to continue suffering at the hands of the English journalists.”

Suarez was handed the 10-game ban for biting the arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a Premier League game last month. The suspension came two years after he received an eight-game ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

During the interview, the Uruguayan said he was “tired” of all the criticism. "I'm happy at Liverpool thanks to the fans,” he said. “I have committed an error. I am human. But [the media have] talked about me in ways they shouldn't have. My family have suffered and things have gone beyond the limits. I am tired of it. My daughter and my wife have suffered. I'm not prepared to continue suffering at the hands of the English journalists.”
