According to several reports by the Catalan media, Ronald Koeman would have communicated to the Uruguayan his decision to not count with him for the following season. Suárez is looking for a club to complete his movement away from Barcelona.

Sources close to Ajax confirmed to Blaugranagram the interest of the Dutch club in bringing Luis Suárez back. The Uruguayan played for the Amsterdam club from 2011 to 2014 and transmitted very good feelings during his time in the Netherlands.

Although there were concrete interest and contacts between both clubs and, also, with the player, there are no negotiations at the moment and the operation is far from materializing.

According to the Spanish media SPORT, Suárez’s future remains uncertain and although other clubs are interested, the Dutch side is the club that insists the most. Marc Overmars, Ajax sporting director, is optimistic about signing the Uruguayan forward and has made a promise to Luis Suárez to present him with an interesting financial proposal.

Moreover, the departure of Donny van de Beek to English football is about to happen and might be key to concretizing the movement for the Uruguayan. With all done in the absence of the official announcement by Manchester United, the Dutch club would enter a significant amount to make the return of El Pistolero possible.

According to the same report, in the coming weeks, Barcelona and its third top scorer could agree to terminate their contract. If Ajax does not have to pay a transfer, the fluency to present an offer with higher salary increases and although they cannot match the wages that the player receives at Barça, the Dutch could convince him to return to what was once his home.
