Barcelona seek buyers for Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic

Barcelona are seeking buyers for Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic.

Marca says Suarez has struggled with injuries and has been way below the expected level for Barcelona's centre forward for two seasons now, and he could be the first 'sacred cow' to be sold.

The Uruguayan forward will have options in Europe and in Major League Soccer with Ajax having already been mentioned as the frontrunners to secure his signature.

Rakitic is also a player that the Blaugrana no longer want around, despite them putting up such a fight to keep him in 2019.

This could be the easiest deal to complete with Monchi and Sevilla very keen to bring the Croatian back to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, whilst the player himself would relish such a move.
