Denis Suarez has stated his intentions to quit Barcelona, but made it clear that he would like to continue playing in Spain.

The player who is now 25 years of age has struggled to have a place at Barca since returning to the club in 2016, as he spent the second half of last season on loan at Arsenal.

As a matter of fact, Suarez failed to impress with the Gunners, playing just six times across all competitions, as he battled with injuries.

And he has now made it clear that a return to England is not appealing to him.

“What I want is to leave Barca and play.

“My goal is to stay in the Spanish league. I have been in Barcelona for two months recovering from the injury and nobody from Barca has told me anything,” Suarez told El Larguero.

Suarez, who is contracted at Camp Nou until 2021, has been linked with a move to Valencia.
