Suarez is thought to fit into the Barca philosophy.
Manchester City youngster Denis Suarez has emerged as a transfer target for FC Barcelona, with the Catalans admiring the Spaniard’s style of play, according to Marca.
The 19-year-old signed for City in the summer of 2011 for £880,000 from Celta Vigo’s youth academy, but still remains a reserve team player at Eastlands and to date has made just two first team appearances – both in the League Cup.
Yet Suarez’s impressive performances for Spain at the under-20 World Cup in Turkey has caught the eye of Barca, with the midfielder playing all four of the nation’s matches at the tournament.
The City starlet likes to operate at as an attacking midfielder, but can also play further back in the centre of the park as well as out wide on the left flank.
The Spaniard’s compact style of play and likening to ‘tika-taka’ football makes Suarez the ideal acquisition at the Nou Camp and Barca would offer the player a year in their B team, before being promoted to the senior squad for three seasons.
This could prove to be an attractive prospect for the young midfield ace, as opportunities at the Etihad Stadium are clearly going to be limited and several clubs have already made enquiries to the Citizens about taking Suarez on-loan.
With just a year remaining on the Spain under-20 international’s current deal, City would certainly be interested if Barca were to make an offer for the youngster.
