Ahead of an expected loan switch to Arsenal, Barcelona midfielder Denis Suárez penned a farewell message to his Blaugrana team-mates.
Denis Suárez has posted a farewell message to Barcelona ahead of his anticipated loan switch to Arsenal. The 25-year-old is expected to be announced as an Arsenal player on Thursday, a day after Barça confirmed the deal before removing the statement from their website.
In the announcement Barça stated that Suárez would spend the rest of the season on loan in the Premier League, while also revealing he had penned a contract extension until 2021. That update was swiftly taken down and official confirmation only came from Arsenal this afternoon.
However, Suárez's latest Twitter post hints there will be no doubt about the switch after Thursday's deadline. Alongside an image of the Barcelona squad, the player wrote: "You're a group of amazing people! Thank you for everything, see you soon. Good luck and Forca Barca."
Suárez, who has played 71 times after signing from Villarreal in 2016, will link up with Unai Emery for a second time after working with the Gunners boss at Sevilla.
