Liverpool striker Luis Suarez appears ready to take the bait set by Real Madrid in their pursuit of the Urugay international.
Goal revealed on Wednesday that the striker had given no assurances over his future at the club in recent meetings with Anfield officials.
And a radio interview later given by Suarez seemed to indicate the Uruguayan has had his fill of certain aspects of living in England.
"Saying no to Real Madrid is very difficult. I talked to Brendan Rodgers. He knows what I want and understands my situation.
"I worked too hard to having to continue listening to the criticism I get from English journalists," he continued.
"I love Liverpool, but I'm not prepared to keep taking all this criticism."
