Suarez backs new signings

FC Barcelona signed Luis Suarez in summer 2014 and the Uruguayan proved to be an instant success with helping the Catalans win the historic treble in 2015 under Luis Enrique.

His statistics in Barcelona are astonishing: 191 goals propelled him into 4th best ever scorer in Barca history. Just 3 short of Hungarian legend Laszlo Kubala.

Yet, it appears his career at Barca is slowly coming to a close.

On his partner in attack, Lionel Messi, he said: "He will want to stay for his whole life but those at Camp Nou need to show ambition in the transfer market and build around him.“

Barca, however, will no find it easy to replace the likes of Suarez, Pique, or Busquets and that is the key to ensuring competitiveness of the team.

Suarez continued: "The fears are understandable because it's what he's said as well, that we're not going to get what we want with what we have now. It depends on how the club recruits. Messi is very happy here. He's so happy here, it's his home.“

"If the club does what has to be done, building a competitive team, then it's going to be great for him and he'll stay here for his whole life. He's said that himself. I think the club understood his message.“

"It's normal for them to want the best player in the world, in the history of the club, to continue at this level here at Barcelona. I hope he stays."

"Bringing in players is good because it makes it more competitive and you're fighting more for your place.“

"I know how old I am and that I have to limit myself a bit sometimes. Competition is healthy and for the good of the team."

"Martin is going to surprise [people]. He's at a great level. He was the best player Leganes had and, with the players he has around him at Barcelona, he can reach his potential."
