Barcelona to lay off Luis Suarez, sell Vidal and Semedo to cash in new signings

The Uruguayan will collect the part of the salary that is remaining on his contract and then bid the club adieu as a free agent.

Per reports, after his contract matter settles with the club, he’ll be heading towards joining Atletico Madrid. The Colchoneros are looking to loan out Alvaro Morata to make up space for the Uruguayan. Nothing concrete as of yet but the move towards Madrid is a real possibility. Suarez, who was to join the Italian heavyweights Juventus this month, could not be happened due to failure of obtaining European passport before the 6th of October, right near the close of transfer window. The Bianconeris foreseeing the negligible chance of his arrival at the club in time decided to discard the signing and are now pursuing Roma’s Edin Džeko.

The decision comes after the club which seems to be in financial crises, needing money to sign a center back and a full back.

As per details, Vidal will be sold for 1.5 million euros + variables. This clear out within the club comes after the debacle in Lisbon last month at the hands of Bayern Munich in a 2-8 loss in Champions league knockouts.

Barcelona also sold Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic to Sevilla for a mere 1 million euros earlier this month. This will help the club to improve the areas where they are vulnerable. According to reports, Barca are looking to sign Eric Garcia (CB) and Sergiño Dest (RB) to revamp their weak defense.
