Messi rocked as Barcelona will listen to offers for Chelsea, Man City target Suarez

Barcelona are willing to listen to offers for Luis Suarez this summer.

For the first transfer window since Suarez's arrival from Liverpool after the 2014 World Cup, Barca are now prepared to sell the Uruguay international.

Diario Gol says the decision has been made with a deal in place for Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann. The France international's arrival would see Suarez make way ahead of the younger Ousmane Dembele.

The decision will upset Lionel Messi, who is close to Suarez, but Barca's board believe paying €100m-plus for Griezmann means he must play.

For the moment, there are no firm offers, but Europe's biggest clubs will be alerted to the striker's availability.

Chelsea and Manchester City are early contenders for Suarez's signature. The forward's agent is Pere Guardiola, the brother of City manager Pep Guardiola.
