It Would Be Fantastic To Play For Barcelona – Ajax Captain Luis Suarez
Ajax skipper Luis Suarez has not hidden his desire to join Barcelona after reports stated that coach Pep Guardiola is a big fan and could make a move for him.
The Uruguayan striker was delighted to be linked with the European champions and hailed them as the best club in the world.
Guardiola was reported to have received outstanding scouting reports on Suarez and watched him in action on video before Barca signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
So impressed was the Blaugrana trainer though that the Catalan daily sports paper believe that a bid could be made to Ajax for their forward in January or next summer.
“It gives me great pride. We are not talking about any club, we are talking of FC Barcelona, the best club in the world and the best team playing football today with Pep Guardiola,” Suarez was quoted as saying by El Mundo Deportivo.
“It would be fantastic to play for Barcelona one day but for now all I have got is what you have written and nothing official from the club.
“So I’ll keep quiet at Ajax, I am very happy here in Amsterdam and I still have three years of my contract.
“But, of course, I would love to see myself one day in Barcelona and as a Barcelona player.”
