Suarez is going to swap Eastlands for Barca B.
Barcelona B are working extremely hard to bring in Manchester City youngster Denis Suarez for a fee of around €1.5m, reports Spanish publication Sport.
Suarez has been linked with the Catalans for some time but finally appears to be moving closer to actually completing the deal and heading back to Spain.
Denis Suarez is already a Barcelona player. Good signing for the B team… for now

The 19-year-old has made just two senior appearances for City since a £900,000 switch from Celta Vigo in 2011, although has impressed for the under-21s side and was also a key member of the Spain under-20 squad at this summer’s World Cup in Turkey.
Barca B have a strong reputation for nurturing youth players and several of the current superstars from the senior side learned their trade at that level.
Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Pedro, Sergio Busquets, Carles Puyol and Victor Valdes, to name a few, all progressed from the B team.
It is extremely difficult for young players at Eastlands to break into the City team however, due to the amount of money the club has to buy top talent.
With the owners expecting instant success, less emphasis has been placed on the long-term future at the Etihad Stadium and more money is thrown at immediate results.
This means that players like Suarez find it nigh on impossible to break into the first team for the Citizens and the attacking midfielder may well find life a little more fruitful in Catalonia.
