Former Sunderland fc defender, now pundit Mickey Gray has urged Tottenham Hotspurs manager Jose Mourinho to grab the chance of having Barcelona want away striker Luis Suarez.
“Do you go and get Suarez or do you go and get [Gareth] Bale?,” Gray asked football magazine talkSPORT. “Then you’re looking at the ages of the players in the squad.
“He actually works well with more experienced players, Jose, just look at his Inter Milan team.
“The only stumbling block in [a move for Suarez] is his wages.
“What Daniel Levy has to look at is that there is no transfer fee, and that he can afford to pay his £400k-£500k-a-week wages.
“Luis Suarez has got the ego, got the background and the track record to go to Spurs and say: “You can play Harry Kane but you’re playing me as well.
With the arrival of Ronald Koeman as the man in charge at Camp Nou, only six players were listed not to be on sale at Barcelona.
Suarez has an outrageous goal record for Barcelona, netting 198 times in only 283 games since joining from Liverpool in 2014.
And Manchester United, who are believed to be on the hunt for a new striker, have also been told to sign the Uruguay ace.
It is understood that Barcelona’s third all-time top scorer has been told to seek other avenues as the squad prepares for the 2020/21 season.
