Suarez keen on United and Spurs

Luis Suarez has said he is desperate to move to the Premier League and has named Manchester United and Tottenham as his favoured destinations.

Suarez, 23, scored 49 goals in all competitions for Ajax last season and then netted three times for Uruguay as they reached the semi-finals of the World Cup.

United and Spurs are both rumoured to have shown interest in Suarez, and the striker has now made it clear that he wants a move to England this summer.

"I am not going to make any secret of my admiration for the Premier League," he told the Daily Star Sunday. "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 very difficult for Ajax to keep me and I think they are fully aware of that."

"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 team with great ambition and have done well to reach the Champions League. I like teams 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."
