Luiz Suarez Set To Quit Barcelona?

By  |  0 Comments

The Daily Mail reports that the Uruguayan’s future in Spain is far from certain following the dismissal of director of football Andoni Zubizarreta and the resignation of his assistant Carles Puyol this week, with England’s four biggest clubs all said to be “monitoring the situation”.

Although the Catalans are understood to want to hang on to the former Liverpool hitman, at least for the moment, a change of regime at the club in the summer following elections in June, could see Suarez deemed surplus to requirements after an indifferent start to the 2014-15 campaign under Luis Enrique.

The 27-year-old is coming under increasing pressure to find his goalscoring form after moving from Liverpool last July for a reported €94m, having hit the back of the net just three times in 12 games, and the English quartet are keeping abreast of his situation.

Even so, Suarez’s position at Barca is further complicated by the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s ruling to uphold the transfer ban imposed on the club for breaking the rules regarding young players from outside Spain, meaning they would be unable to bring in a suitable replacement.
