The Uruguayan striker indicated his wish to return to his former club but also admitted that he’d like to prolong his stay at the Camp Nou for the time being.
Luis Suarez has insinuated that he may leave Barcelona once his current contract with the Catalan giants runs its course in the summer of 2021.
The former Liverpool and Ajax striker also admitted that he’d like to return to one of his former clubs after spending seven highly successful seasons at the Camp Nou.
The 33-year-old has been one of the deadliest strikers in Europe over the past seven seasons and has managed to score 191 and assist 108 goals in 270 appearances for Barca.
Sebastian Abreu, one of the Uruguayan’s former teammates who is now a player-manager with Boston River, has gone on record to explain his fellow national’s desire to play for his former side.
Abreu was one of the leading stars for Nacional in the 2004/05 season as Suarez was coming through the youth ranks of the Uruguayan outfit.
The 43-year-old spent only one season at the club but claims that if he’s ever to become its manager, the Barcelona superstar might return and play for the side.
He told Uruguayan radio station 890: “I spoke with Suarez and he said that if I am the coach of Nacional he could return.”
Even though he may have admitted to one of his former senior pros his desire to return to his homeland, Suarez is currently in no rush to end his relationship with Barca.
The 33-year-old is one of the key members of the Barca front-three alongside Lionel Messi and also enjoys great rapport with the Argentine international.
His pace might have slowed down over the years but the Uruguayan, when fit, is still capable of terrorizing and getting past opposition defenders with his trickery.
Suarez has also recently indicated his desire to stay at the Camp Nou for the time being, with the striker admitting in February that his focus remains on the Catalan giants.
“There is the option that if I play 60 per cent of the games I’m available for next year, I [will] renew automatically,” he told Catalan radio station RAC1 in February.
