When Suarez moved from Liverpool to Barcelona in 2014, many thought the Barcelona attacking power had been strengthened with the addition of one of the most terrifying attackers in modern football.
However, the Uruguayan, who moved after taking a chunk off of Italian defender, Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup has since been struggling to repeat the feat he achieved with Liverpool before switching to the Cam Nou.
The attacker became one of the fearsome attackers of last season and was a joint winner of the European Golden ball with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The temperamental attacker has been the subject of criticism after struggling to find the back of the net repeatedly.
In December, the Uruguayan played down the importance of scoring goals and told the press that helping the club to secure all three points in a game is more important than his own goal scoring feat at the club.
But despite that, the striker has ended up becoming a better assist with the Barcelona side; assisting Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi and Brazilian international, Neymar. The striker was however frustrated to later mention that his presence at the club is not to assist Lionel Messi but to score goals.
“I came to Barcelona to score goals and not to assist. It is my responsibility to help the team and scoring goals will help the team get all three points in a game.”
The one-time prolific Liverpool striker debuted for the Spanish side against Real Madrid in the el clasico but failed to make an impression as Real Madrid emerged victorious in a disappointing debut for the striker.
Reasons for Suarez’s dip in form could be caused by the club’s style of play, compared to Liverpool’s fast paced attack. It would be right the attacker finds his way back to Anfield on loan deal. Such a deal could better lift his frustration and probably help him reach the blistering peak of his career he once reached with the Reds. This will in turn benefit Barca who will be receiving back an in form player at the end of the loan deal.
With a club-record transfer for the Uruguayan, Barcelona may never let go of the striker, as they are aware that a replacement for him might not be achievable as they have been banned from signing players till 2016 by FIFA.
While the suggestion of a loan deal could benefit the Uruguayan strike and Brendan Rodgers’ side who are devoid of a striker, as well as the fans of the club, the on-going crisis at the Camp Nou might not let such suggestions see the light of day. Suarez remains the property of Barcelona as long as his contract stands and the thought of an early move away seem like a mirage which in reality is fake.
However, sillier things have happened in football and you should never say never.
