Barcelona To Terminate Luis Suarez's Contract In The Coming Days
The 33-year-old, who currently has a year left on his current deal at Barcelona, scored an impressive 21 goals in 36 appearances for the Catalan giants in 2019/20.
But despite his form, it looks increasingly likely that he will leave on a free transfer in the coming days.
Spanish publication RAC1 claim Koeman spoke to Suarez over the phone on Monday to tell him the news in what turned out to be a brief conversation.
The next step is for Suarez's lawyers to negotiate the termination of his contract at the club, according to reports.
And in addition to the above update, journalist Fabrizio Romano, who has previously claimed Barca would be ready to sell him if they receive an "important bid", has confirmed Suarez is going to leave in the coming days, with talks ongoing with "many clubs".
Keep an eye on Luis Suarez situation. He has not been mentioned by the president Bartomeu between the "untouchables", Barça would be ready to sell him if they'll receive an "important bid".
Ajax have contacted his agent and will try to get him back. Many clubs to follow. :flag_uy: #FCB

Last week, Suarez spoke about the current transfer situation at Barcelona amid reports that the club are looking to offload some of their more experienced players, including Jordi Alba and Serio Busquets.
"There has been talk of some names that the president suggested, changes that could be made, but nobody has told me that they want to get rid of me," Suarez told AS.
"If that is what the club wants it would be nice if the director responsible for these decisions spoke directly with me. It's better than leaking if I'm one of the players they want to leave. We'll see what happens.
"I want what's best for the club as well and right now my intention is to stay on but if the club decide I'm no longer wanted, I have no problem talking to those that decide.
"Koeman? I haven't spoken to him yet."
