Koeman tells Luis Suarez he is not in Barcelona’s plans

New Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has told Luis Suarez that he is not in next season’s plans, RAC1 reports.

Suarez, 33, is one of several big names whose futures have been cast into doubt after Barca’s 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.

The Catalan club want to overhaul the playing staff, but must first sell big earners like Suarez.

And on Monday morning, Koeman told Suarez by telephone that he will not count on him next season.

The next steps will be a meeting between Barcelona and Suarez’s lawyers to settle the player’s contract.

Suarez has one year remaining on his deal, with the option of a further year.

The Uruguayan’s former club Ajax have a concrete interest in him but are unlikely to be his only suitors.
