Luis Suarez has called on the club’s president, Josep Bartomeu, to provide him clarity over his future at Camp Nou. Suarez, amongst others, has his future at Barcelona uncertain, following the club’s disastrous 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week. The Uruguayan striker has one year left on his current deal and wants the president to clear the air as regards where his future lies.
“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 that he chooses speaks directly with me. I have been six years in Barca, enough time to say what they think. Better so, filter if I’m one of those to leave.
It remains to be seen. I also want the best for the club and my idea today is to continue, but if the club thinks I am expendable, I’ve no problem talking to those who decide. As long as I’m counted on, I want to continue contributing everything I can. I have no problem helping with the role they give me. I think I can still contribute a lot to this club.”
Suarez joined Barcelona from Liverpool and has contributed massively to the club’s success since his arrival most notably during the era of the famous front trio of himself, Messi and Neymar. His time at the Camp Nou could, however, be up as Barcelona enters a rebuilding phase under new manager Ronald Koeman.
Should he get moved on this summer, El Pistolero can look back at his time in Spain with great delight and pride before making his decision on who to join next because even at 33, it is clear that the ex-Liverpool man still has a lot to give as he enters the twilight of his career.
