Suarez not alone being frozen out at Barcelona

Luis Suarez isn't alone in being on the outer of Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman's plans.

Sport says Suarez is the biggest name but Koeman also doesn't count on Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and Samuel Umtiti either, while Junior Firpo is also set to be removed.

Barca will make it easy for the players to go but also want to get money in from their sales so they can spend themselves.

Koeman has been speaking to those affected by his decisions.

In some cases, like Rakitic or Umtiti, they knew already that it was time to go and the club didn't want them.
