Luis Suarez has been Barcelona’s goalscoring talisman alongside Lionel Messi for quite some time now.
They used to be part of a lethal trident but Neymar’s departure left these two veterans forwards carrying the team. With the prospect of Neymar’s return looming large, will Suarez accept him back? Or does the Uruguayan forward now want Barcelona to bring in young Lautaro Martinez, a forward of immense potential?
With the transfer season coming close, here is what Luis thinks!
“It is difficult to talk about players today due to the situation in the world,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“Talking about who could come in is complicated but I can speak about what they are like and they are huge players.
“Obviously, everyone knows Ney and we have a great appreciation for him in the dressing room which is indisputable as a player because he still has so much to give.
“He would always be welcome in this dressing room because of the affection we have for him. Lautaro is a player who has grown a lot in Italy and is a No. 9 with spectacular movement.
“That reflects what a great striker he is.”
But will Griezmann in the team and Lionel Messi indispensable, will it affect Suarez’s role in the team? When asked, Suarez spoke like a true leader who can put the team first.
“It isn’t that you feel compatible but you feel happy that the club wants to sign players who can come in to help and fulfil the same objects as everyone else,” he said.
“We always want to win everything. Then when it comes to healthy competition, which there will always be, we’ll always be on the same side.
“So players who come to fight for a place in the team and help us will always be welcome. It will always be better and strengthen the group.”
