Luiz Suarez could be playing for Juventus next season with Andrea Pirlo’s side considering a move for the Barcelona outcast.
Iwazi NG can confirm that Suarez has been offered to the reigning Serie A champions after seemingly being shown the door at Camp Nou. Juventus are in the market for another striker. This is after new manager Pirlo recently confirming the departure of Gonzalo Higuain.
Suarez, now 33, has never played in Serie A before. He moved to Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014 having first turned heads while playing in the Eredivisie for Ajax.
After the appointment of Ronald Koeman as the Catalans’ new manager. Suarez was left off the Dutchman’s list of names that were seen as vital to the future of the club with the forward quickly pleading for clarity from club president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Suarez said this in an interview with El Pais:
“There is talk of some names that the president gave, of changes that can be made, but nobody told me that they want to do without me.”
“If this is the desire of the club, it would be good if the person in charge speaks directly to me. I’ve been at Barca for six years, enough time to say what they think. It’s better to tell me if I am one of the ones that they want out. It remains to be seen.
“I also want the best for the club and my plan today is to continue. If the club thinks that I am expendable, I have no problem speaking with those who decide.
“[I want to stay], as long as I am counted on, I want to continue contributing as much as I can. I have felt the support of the fans since I arrived. That also gives me a lot of strength to continue.”
