Barcelona news: Luis Suarez tells La Liga giants he will QUIT the club for this bizarre reason

BARCELONA star Luis Suarez has reportedly told the club he will leave if the club sign a striker in the mould of Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann

Suarez has struggled for Barcelona this season, managing just five goals despite the club dominating La Liga and reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The 30-year-old still appears to be feeling the effects of a serious knee injury sustained in the Spanish Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid in August.

His toiling performances has led to plenty of talk that Barcelona may be about to replace him with Griezmann, who has emerged as a priority target.

And Spanish outlet Don Balon say Suarez is furious at the prospect of the France international arriving

Ever since signing for Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014, the Uruguay international has been a regular in the team.

He famously fired them to treble glory the year after his arrival, getting on the scoresheet against Juventus in the final.

But, given his age, Barcelona seemingly want to trade him in for a younger model.

Griezmann appears most likely, while Juventus’ Paulo Dybala and PSG’s Edinson Cavani have also been tipped to join.

Don Balon claim Suarez has told club chiefs of his determination to leave if a marquee name is signed.

But president Josep Maria Bartomeu is said to be unconcerned.

He reportedly thinks Barcelona will not be inundated with offers for Suarez because of his age.

And, as a result, he feels Suarez will have no choice but to put up with another striker arriving.

The Uruguay international is expected to feature when Barcelona go up against Celta Vigo tomorrow (12pm).
