In the midst of the uproar, FC Barcelona, preparing for the Spanish league season, managed to keep their number one husband, Lionel Mess, but Luis Suárez in the Catalan shirt is hardly seen anymore.
Spanish newspaper Marca wrote on Monday that an experienced Uruguayan striker and Barcelona club management have reached an agreement on the resignation of the roads.
According to Marcan, Suárez, 33, would have one more contract left, but in order to leave, he has agreed to give up part of his contract pay.
As early as the end of August, Spanish sources reported that Barcelona’s new head coach Ronald Koeman had informed Suárez that this was not part of his plans for the coming season.

Suárez made his breakthrough in Ajax during the 2007-2011 seasons.
He then represented Liverpool before moving to Barcelona in autumn 2014.
The Barcelona Grand Club has been in turmoil throughout the early fall, as the team lost humiliatingly to Bayern Munich in the final of the Champions League in a 2-8 score.
Spanish media like RAC1 and Cope firmly believe that Suárez’s next address would be Barcelona’s major competitor, Atlético Madrid.
Cope magazine writes that Atlético head coach Diego Simeone would have influenced Suárez and that Suárez had already reached an agreement with the club on his future contract.
