Denis Suarez Fears He Is Being Pushed Out of Barcelona With Constant Transfer 'Exposure'

Publish date:

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has revealed he is frustrated at the constant speculation linking him with a move away from Camp Nou, as he feels he is being is pushed him out of the door by rumours.

The 23-year-old has managed just seven appearances this season for Ernesto Valverde’s side, as he finds himself down in the pecking order behind the likes of Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic.

However, the Spaniard is of the belief that regardless of the level of his performances he will always be on the chopping block. 


Suarez moved to Barcelona from Villarreal in 2016, but has found it hard to break into the first team, which has led to a number of rumours suggesting a potential loan move to Serie A side Napoli in January.

However, the midfielder is furious with such speculation, he told Mundo Deportivo: "I feel that whatever I do, I am always on the market. 

"I do not want to leave Barcelona, I've said that for a long time. I want to succeed here, I have rejected a proposal to leave and the rumours aren't coming from me.

"I have the feeling, I do not know if on the part of the club, that whatever I do I am exposed in the market. I haven't talked to anyone at the club about these matters. I haven't asked my agent to put this out there and I've never said I want to leave."

As part of clauses in the deal which led to Suarez's move to Catalonia, Barcelona have to pay £715,000 to Suarez's former club at youth level Manchester City for every 10 matches the 23-year-old plays up to his 100th game - an agreement which, Suarez feels, could be restricting his game time.

He added: "I think that if I play a hundred games, there will be €8m in total that Barca would have to pay to City. 

“In the end €8m for a player who plays a hundred games at Barca, as is the market, I think it is a fairly low price, but that are decisions that the club will have to make, I do not know if the coach also.”
