Luis Suarez has cleared the rumours of him leaving Barcelona this summer. Suarez came under-fire after his former lawyer said Suarez’s future is tied to Lionel Messi.
Barcelona’s summer keeps heating up with more news of transfers.
With the Lionel Messi transfer request completely destroying Barcelona’s plans for the transfer window, there has been talk of other Barcelona stalwarts such as Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and Luis Suarez leaving the Camp Nou.
Suarez in particular has been rumoured to be having his contract terminated by Barcelona and let go on a free transfer after manager Ronald Koeman said that the Uruguayan won’t feature in his plans.
The former Liverpool striker has lashed out at claims that his future is tied with Lionel Messi though.
Suarez’s former lawyer, Alejandro Balbi said that due to Suarez and Messi’s close friendship that their future will be tied:
“Messi’s future will have an influence on Suarez’s because they are best friends, they get along on and off the pitch,” the lawyer claimed in an interview with TyC Sports. “There is a lot of brotherly love between Messi and Suarez, they are inseparable, always together.”
Suarez responded to his ex-lawyer saying that his future is decided by himself, and not by the future of Messi.
“There are people talking about me or on my behalf when I have not had a relationship with them for years,” Suarez said. “When I need to speak, I’ll speak for myself.”
The Uruguayan striker has been prominently linked with a return to Ajax if his contract is terminated, with Koeman wanting Suarez and Messi’s future sorted as soon as possible to begin his rebuild of Barcelona.
