Not long back, Suarez rubbished all the rumours that his future is tied with Messi when the Uruguayan’s lawyer Alejandro Balbi made the claims.
“He is an outstanding player and is more current than ever. I know little about the chance of that he goes to Manchester City, but everyone knows about the brotherhood he has with Leo. They are flesh and nail, they arrive together, they kick together, they have family gatherings together. They are compadres and they understand each other on and off the pitch,” he said.
But soon Suraez rubbished the claims taking to his Instagram. Writing in Spanish, the Uruguayan said: “There are people speaking in my name or saying things about me, when I have not had a relationship (with them) for years. I speak when I have to speak for myself!!!”
Meanwhile, Messi in all probabilty will be heading to Etihad to join Pep Guardiola. He also missed Barcelona’s first training session this season.
Barcelona has not won a single title this season and then the Champions League thrashing compelled Messi to seek an end of his contract.
