The former Manchester United and Real Madrid defender starred in Uruguay's 1-0 win over Egypt in their opening game of the World Cup, and
"I've read the reports but I haven't, nor would I, ask Luis about them," Varela said to an EFE news outlet (via Marca).
"No one has confirmed them to me. Obviously yes, it would be a dream to play for Barcelona and more alongside Suarez, it would be really nice. But I don't want to think about that, I only want to think about Uruguay."
Varela was also asked about the mindset of Luis Suarez after Uruguay's game against Egypt. The Uruguayan forward was uncharacteristically complacent in front of goal in his first World Cup game of the summer, provoking a great deal of criticism after the game.
"I see him with the same desire and enthusiasm. He couldn't convert them the other day. Luis is fine. He's a great player and he's always shown that at Barcelona."
"The night before [the match] I felt horrible. It was my first match at the World Cup. At the beginning I was a little tense, I felt anxious before the game. Then you start to let it go."
Uruguay face Saudi Arabia on Wednesday in their second game of the tournament, and Suarez will be hoping that he can re-find his goalscoring form to capitalise on the frailties in the Saudi Arabia defence that were evident in the 5-0 defeat to Russia.
