According to recent reports, Barcelona soccer star Luis Suarez has recalled some big transfer news of the Spanish team to his new teammate, Philippe Coutinho.

Gomes had had a rough time at Barcelona ever since he joined Catalonia back in 2016, after being transferred from La Liga team Valencia. He has spent 18 long months with the Spanish super team, and is still struggling to gain the trust of Ernesto Valverde, as well as former boss Luis Enrique. And according to media Luis Suarez reveals Barcelona transfer news to his new teammate Coutinho.

Reportedly, Suarez has confided in Coutinho that this might be Gomes’ last season at the team, and has also added that the transfer is expected to take place in January itself, if there is a suitable offer, giving Barcelona a change to make a profitable use of the January transfer window. The introduction of the 24 years old in place of team captain Andres Iniesta was a decision made by Valverde, and it was not well-received by the fans of the club. In the meanwhile, Gomes has put up an impressive display, which was not expected of him, as he came on in the recent victory of Barcelona against Real Sociedad with a score of 4-2.
But after the match, the manager of the club explained his thoughts while speaking to the media. He said that the team has many matches how, and like all the others, this game, too, had presented special circumstances, such as a wet pitch, the time in between the last match, etc. He explained that he thought it would be better to go ahead with Gomes in the game, because the opponents had a strong right side. He added that Andre’s is absolutely fine, even though he has a little bit of a problem, and it was preferred that he did not participate.
Suarez apparently disclosed the insider news of Gomes’ transfer from Barcelona to Coutinho. Barca is currently sitting at the top of the La Liga table, with no sigh of being toppled by the second place holder, Atletico Madrid, which is 9 points behind. On the other hand, defending champions Real Madrid are in the 4th place, who are 19 points behind.
