Barcelona News: La Liga giants Barcelona want to make changes to the squad with certain players leaving this summer with the exit door open at Camp Nou
Barcelona has gone past a series of unrest with players lacking faith in the board. The 2-8 loss to Bayern Munich did not please the fans. Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu faced criticism regarding his plans involving future plans. Barca talisman Lionel Messi did decide to stay at the club after the transfer saga.
Messi raised certain points over the current board and their upcoming project. Despite all the storms, Barcelona is set to move forward. Newly-appointed manager Ronald Koeman started calling the shots at the club. He expressed Griezmann to play an important role in his team. The French attacker will get to play in a more central role this term.
Griezmann will fill in for the departing Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan has been linked with a move away from the club. Juventus were seeking much interest in the veteran striker. According to ESPN, the Italian Champions are closing in on the striker. However, talks are put on stall after Atletico Madrid needed a striker. The 33-year old is eager to find a new team this summer transfer window. (Barcelona News)
Koeman wants Suarez to stay but the striker will receive limited appearances as per TV3. Deportes Cuatro claims Diego Simeone is in search for a new striker as Costa and Morata may leave. Juventus is monitoring the situation of Alvaro Morata. They might make a move on the Spaniard if Suarez does not respond to negotiations. (Barcelona News)
Diego Costa has interests from Premier League. Tottenham Hotspurs are the front runners in signing the Brazilian. Costa has had a terrible second stint at the Rojiblancos. This could enforce his exit even though he has a year left in his contract.
Suarez to stay in La Liga with Atletico Madrid ?
Luis Suarez moving to Atletico Madrid is quite suitable. He has settled well in Spain and that explains why he stays in La Liga. Moreover, Simeone may offer him a starting position in the team. The Madrid gaffer knows the attacking prowess of the veteran and his familiarity with the league. (Barcelona News)

- Barcelona is looking to bring in a star midfielder to replace the departing Ivan Rakitic
Diego Simeone’s shortlist consists of Alexandre Lacazette, Raul De Tomas, and Edinson Cavani. Suarez and Cavani both are available on a free transfer. Nevertheless, experience in the top Spanish flight will count as a positive for Luis Suarez. Moreover, De Tomas could only fit as a back-up which makes it clear on the 33-year-old’s role at the club. The negotiations are yet to take place but the speculation is firm. (Barcelona News)
