Lionel Messi may not be the only star leaving Barcelona. Luis Suarez is about to leave FC Barcelona because he is not in the plan of the new coach Ronald Koeman. According to RAC1, the club will cancel his contract and make him a free agent, confirmed by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano.
The 33-year-old Uruguayan star has won all Barcelona titles, but has been plagued by injuries this season. He joined Barcelona in 2014 and has been the best striker in the world ever since, scoring 283 games for the club in all competitions, scoring 198 goals. He scored 59 goals in his second season at Barcelona. He still scored 21 goals in the 2019-20 season, but only played 36 games, averaging about 50 games during his club.
Messi told the team that he wanted to leave the team, which brought the club into an unknown season, ranking 9th. Barcelona failed to win the championship trophy this season for the first time in ten years. The final blow was an 8-2 loss to the final champion Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.
As for Suarez, he will have no shortage of options to continue his career. He is expected to receive a large number of offers from all over Europe, and there are rumors that he may return to the former club Ajax. But as Diaro Sport reported, it’s easier said than done.
He also has close ties with Major League Soccer, Inter Milan is seen as a possible destination for South Florida clubs to seek forwards, and has a familiar face on Uruguayan manager Diego Alonso.
