Going by reports, Barcelona will have to pay as much as £12million (€14million) in order to cancel Luis Suarez’s contract.
The Uruguayan has been informed by new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman that he isn’t in his plans.
Goal reports that Barcelona will have to pay a significant fee if they are to get the striker off their books.
The 33-year-old scored 21 goals in 36 games for the Nou Camp outfit last season but at that age he is very much in the latter stages of his career. He earns around £400,000-a-week.
Suarez has less than a year remaining on his current contract at Barcelona.
Koeman is attempting to reshape Barca’s squad off the back of a season without a trophy which led to the dismissal of his predecessor Quique Setien.
Barcelona’s 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League prompted the club’s desire for a significant overhaul.
In addition to the Suarez situation, Barcelona are still attempting to address Lionel Messi’s future, with the Argentina star eager to leave.
