Neymar renewed contract was worth €16 million per year, with a buy-out clause of €200 million, which will increase subsequently every year. Neymar new deal took his wages near by Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi’s wages, but Suarez is also not far behind. Suarez also signed his new contract, which will see him partnering Neymar till 2021, at Camp Nou. Hopefully, Lionel Messi who still needs to decide his future at the club, will see the prospect of a multiple trophy laden years, if he joins the South American duo to continue being the lethal trio in the footballing world.
Suarez release clause has also reached to the level of Neymar with €200 million mentioned in his contract, and there is no denying that he will match his Brazilian teammate Neymar’s €16 million salary as well. Suarez was never in doubt about renewing his contract with the Blaugranas, as he got ready to pen down a new deal on Friday. Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu has already talked to media a week ago about Christmas present to the fans with Suarez deal.
“Suarez is going to renew [his contract] now. It’s already done,” Bartomeu told Radio Vision. “There are only a few small details outstanding. In the coming days or weeks we will announce it. Maybe, why not, as a big Christmas present. Not for Luis, who already knows that he is going to continue here, but for football fans. For them he is a very important character who forms part of this spectacular front three that we have at the club.”
Well Suarez is happy to sign his new deal, but he is still concern about his close friend – Lionel Messi’s take on his own contract.
“I feel complete happiness because I am where I want to be. It’s now official, I never put any obstacles in the way of a renewal. I will never lose my ambition and enthusiasm for winning trophies and scoring goals,” Suarez said.
“My renewal has nothing to do with Neymar or Messi’s. Leo is great and he knows what he has to do and decide.
“As a teammate I am available to help him but Leo is old enough to decide for himself. We are friends and we have a great relationship, but he is an adult and he has to take that decision.”
Suarez renewal isn’t a message to Lionel Messi as he confirmed, but his worrisome face when answering the Messi’s contract renewal and statement of, “My happiness will be complete only if Messi renews his contract as well”, tells a different story. Everybody wants Messi to stay at Barcelona, and the person who will be benefiting most will be Suarez with his assists, as he knows better. Messi is not getting any younger, and he is dropping himself little deeper from last few seasons to provide the assists to his both South American friends, and this way Suarez & Neymar, both needs the services of Argentine talisman.
