The real reason Barça’s Denis has not been called up for Sevilla game
Denis Suarez was dropped from Barcelona’s squad for Wednesday’s game against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey quarterfinal first leg at the last minut. Barça uncovered formally that he was the oddball after Kevin Prince Boateng’s printed material came through. But the real reason is to do with putting pressure on the player.
Denis has taken the decision to leave Barça if a deal’s struck with Arsenal, the club who have made him the most attractive offer. The English club’s coach, Unai Emery, has transmitted his confidence in him and said he will give him minutes from the off. Denis is prioritising the football side of things above anything else and wants to move to London.
Barça have other offers
Arsenal want Denis but they cannot pay to do a transfer this month. Thus, Denis could just go to England on credit. That is the issue. Barça have gotten in ongoing hours better offers which they might want the midfielder to acknowledge. But none are as appealing to Denis as Arsenal and he doesn’t want to commit his future to another club.
