Luis Suárez has an interesting proposal from MLS team Inter Miami. David Beckham’s club wants Luis Suárez to be their marquee signing. The Uruguayan wants to stay at Barça however, if possible until 2022.
Suárez currently has a contract until 2021, but a special clause says that if he plays %60 of the games in the upcoming season, his contract will automatically get extended until 2022.
David Beckham has already positioned himself to sign the player, and it is known that interest for the American league is on the rise, especially for older players. In fact, in November 2019, a compatriot of Luis spoke about the player’s taste for the American League: “Luis wants to come to MLS. He likes the league. He always asks me questions about it. I think it’s only a matter of time before he is here.”
The 33-year-old is one of the top-scorers in Barça history, and despite his age, he is still being considered a key factor in the team. However, in 2022 the Uruguayan will be 35-years-old already, so whether he could keep up until then (and afterward) remains a question.
Barça wants to sign Memphis Depay, or nothing
According to Cat Radio, Barcelona still wants Memphis Depay per Ronald Koeman’s requests. If they are unable to sign the Dutchman, the club will continue the season without a number 9.
Even though Culés pointed towards Ansu Fati’s brilliant performance against Villarreal, Koeman still wants to sign a forward, and he only has one candidate on his list: Memphis Depay. However, the Catalan club is facing financial problems to sign the player.
Lyon would accept bids of around €25 million for Depay. They would also accept €12.5 million now, and the rest paid in installments later on. However, even under these terms, Barça has told that they can not afford the deal.
Even though Koeman keeps insisting, the operation seems not possible at this point, unless the Catalan club continues to sell players. Lyon has also warned Barcelona that the deadline for them to sign the Dutchman is friday.
