Barça wants to find a dignified exit for both Luis Suárez and Jordi Alba. There will be a replacement for Alba whether He leaves or not. Barça will sign a number 9 if Suárez leaves as per @sanantheone.
Luis Suárez has yet to speak personally with Koeman. At least he hadn’t done it until yesterday. But it will. Based on the message that Ronald gives him, Luis will make his own decision . What Suárez already knows is that Barça don’t have Suárez.
Barça considers the presence of Luis Suárez at Barça has been amortized and that, in the absence of a year before the contract ends, Barça wants him to find a new destination and that all parties benefit.
Possible swap deal with Van de Beek?
Ajax have contacted Luis Suárez directly to let him know that Ajax would be delighted for him to be part of their project . The offer is on the table of Luis Suárez and Barça.
The idea of Luis Suárez however, is quite the opposite. He wishes to complete the remaining year of his contract and, once free, choose his destination without conditions that do not depend on Barça. However, this is a very delicate case for Barça because Barça want to sign a number 9 and the chosen name is Lautaro Martínez. But his arrival will be impossible if Suárez does not agree to leave this summer. If he stays, Lautaro’s door will close, surely permanently.
Ronald Koeman wants to bring Van De Beek from Barça. Luis Suárez is the key to the operation. Ajax wants €45m-€50m for De Beek. If Ajax ends up convincing Suárez to join them, Barça will add €20m+Suárez to Ajax for Van De Beek per @RogerTorello.

From the entourage of Van de Beek , they confess that Van De Beek is very excited about joining Barça but they prefer to be cautious and see how events unfold.
Looking for a LB regardless of Alba leaving
Barça don’t count Jordi Alba and this will be communicated by Ronald Koeman. In fact, there has been talk of the possible interest of Atlético, although it has been Inter who, formally, has asked about him in the the negotiations of Lautaro at the time.
Barça are indeed interested in Jose Gaya. Barça have contacted his entourage. But it is also true that, right now, Gayà doesn’t want to listen offers and remains faithful to Valencia per @Generaldepie_.
However, From Jose Gaya’s entourage, He lives with concern the situation, wants to stay but knows Valencia needs to sell.
Update on Messi
BARÇA DECLARES MESSI Untransferable and will not accept offers for him.Koeman is counting on him for a new cycle. Barça will only sell players that Koeman does not want because it is a sports problem, and not an institutional one per @Marsallorente@sinconcesiones.
But, rumor says that Messi’s anger with the club is getting worse. According to @clarincom, Messi felt very bad that the content of his meeting with Koeman was leaked (and so quickly). He believes that it is a strategy of the current board to try to tarnish his image to the fans via @tjuanmarti
