Luis Suarez was one of the first Barcelona players to receive a call from Ronald Koeman to learn of his fate.
The Uruguayan was called last Tuesday and the Dutchman explained that he was not part of his plans for next season, which the forward had suspected before his phone rang.
Suarez wants to stay at the Camp Nou, but he knows that he has no shortage of suitors if he is to leave, from Juventus and Ajax to Leicester and MLS sides as well.
The Italian champions were one of the first to act on the news.
Some Italian media outlets put forward the idea of an exchange for Gonzalo Higuain, but that has been ruled out by Barcelona.
Ajax would also be open to their former player returning and sporting director Marc Overmars has expressed the club’s interest, although he did acknowledge that the chances were slim at the moment.
Leicester are another club interested, but they have just renewed Jamie Vardy for another three years, while David Beckham’s Inter Miami are leading the way in MLS.
Whatever happens, the 33-year-old will have plenty of options if he does walk out of the Camp Nou this summer.
He’ll leave as their third highest goalscorer in history, with two Golden Boots to his name and he ended the 2019/20 season with 21 goals in 36 appearances, even having to undergo knee surgery during the campaign.
