Luis Suarez He also told Barcelona to sign Uruguay’s Darwin Nunez while playing for the club.
Nunez played in the Spanish Segunda Division of Almeria, where he scored 16 goals in 30 games in the 2019/20 campaign.
Then he was beaten by Benfica, where he grew into a very exciting striker.
Nunez scored twice against Barcelona in last month’s 3-0 Champions League group stage victory and has now spoken of being a Є 100 million player after scoring eight goals in six matches this season.
Suarez, now in Atletico Madrid, could have got Barca much cheaper if he listened to him.
“When he was in Almeria, I said it in Barca,” he told Gerard Romero on the Twitch stream.
“He asked me and I said, ‘Look at this guy, he’s very interesting.’
“Call by Coman to say it [I wasn’t in his plans] It lasted for 40 seconds, not a way to say goodbye to the legend.
“Before, they told me that I was not on their plans, and then they said if I don’t settle my contract, I’m not going to play against Villarreal.
“He has a lack of personality to make it clear if he doesn’t want me or if it’s a club that doesn’t really want me.”
Suarez is set to join Juventus in the summer of 2020 but after the move collapsed he stayed with Atletico in Spain, winning the La Liga title with 21 goals in his last term.
