Luis Suarez: I turned down other offers to join Barcelona


Barcelona striker Luis Suarez revealed he never considered other offers before signing for the Spanish giants.

Despite a controversial exit from the 2014 World Cup Finals, the Uruguay international was signed by the Blaugrana for an estimated fee of £65m in a move described by the player as a dream.

"I didn't hesitate for a moment when I found out they wanted me because this was always my dream," Suarez is quoted as saying by Barca Fans.

"I turned down other offers because my wish was to play at the Camp Nou.

"My career has now reached its pinnacle because I'm with the best club in the world."

The 27-year-old was heavily criticised for biting Italy's Chiellini in a World Cup match but that didn't stop Barcelona from making him one of their most expensive signing ever.

Suarez was banned from all football-related activity following the incident but can train and play friendlies.
