Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are said to be among the clubs ready to splash the cash in an attempt to lure the Uruguay international to Spain.

And Gabri has revealed that Suarez has always held ambitions of playing for the Catalan club.

“Luis Suarez has always wanted to play for the club and defend the Barcelona shirt,” Gabri told Spanish television station Esport.

“He has always wanted to head here someday, so I would be very pleased [if he did].

“I also believe the club want to buy him. He would suit it well, he is very enthusiastic and would fit in nicely at the club.

“The family of his wife are also in Barcelona.”
