Home / Suarez always dreamed of Barcelona, says former teammate

Luis Suarez has always wanted to play for Barcelona, according to his former team mate Gabri Garcia who went on to add that he would jump at the chance if the club came calling.

Gabri, who himself played for the Catalan giants between 1999 and 2006 after coming through the youth ranks at the club is close friends with the Liverpool striker and his family after spending four years with him at Ajax Amsterdam after he was sold by his boyhood club.

The excellent form that the Uruguayan striker has shown in the Premier League over the last couple of seasons has made him one of the hottest properties in world football at the moment with both Real Madrid and Barcelona credited with an interest in the talismanic striker and according to Gabri, he would pick the Blaugrana over Los Merengues any day.

Gabri stated that while they were at Ajax, they enjoyed a close bond because of their common mother tongue and said that he always wanted to come to the Catalan giants, adding that it would make him immensely happy if he did that.

He went on to add that if the club does move for the player, they would be making a great signing considering the adaptability that the player has shown in every league he has played in and he would be a great fit for the club as well. The move would also suit his young family with his in-laws staying near the city as well.

Gabri mentioned that if Suarez joined Barcelona, the club would have one of the best attacking lineups in the world with Lionel Messi and Neymar already a part of the team and signing the Uruguayan would make them an almost unstoppable force and help them dominate for years to come.
