Following shock rumors claiming Suarez’s time at FC Barcelona is near its end, it’s time to check out where the bookmakers think he’ll end up next.

Ronald Koeman has a big rebuilding job on his hands at Barcelona and isn’t afraid to make some ruthless calls when required, as Luis Suarez discovered on Monday.

The Uruguayan striker, who was until recently one of the undisputed stars of the Blaugrana, now finds himself surplus to requirements and in need of a new club for next season.

What made it even more surprising was that Suarez was willing to accept a bench role to continue. While Koeman understandably wants a fresh start, having a quality striker with bags of experience as a bench warmer can only be a plus.

But the newly appointed Barcelona manager has opted otherwise, leaving Suarez with a decision to make as bookmakers have priced up to 10 clubs on Oddschecker with a chance of signing the former Liverpool man.

The 10 favorites to sign Suarez

  1. Ajax – 6/4
  2. PSG – 5/1
  3. Any MLS Club – 6/1
  4. Any Chinese Super League Club – 7/1
  5. Juventus – 11/1
  6. Arsenal – 11/1
  7. Tottenham – 12/1
  8. Liverpool – 12/1
  9. Inter – 12/1
  10. Manchester United – 16/1

Suarez isn’t the same player anymore, but who is at 33 years old anyway? He does still possess plenty of quality and scored 21 goals in 36 outings for Barcelona last season in all competitions. He even chipped in a further 12 assists in the process.

Plenty of clubs will likely come swarming around for his services this summer, with Ajax tipped as the bookmakers’ favorites despite rumors in the Spanish press claiming otherwise.

The striker played for the Dutch giants between 2007 and 2011. He provided 111 goals and 68 assists in 159 appearances, winning one Eredivisie title and KNVB Cup.

Liverpool, whom Suarez played for between 2011 and 2014, are also in the mix. Although it appears they have an outside chance (12/1) compared to Premier League rivals Arsenal (11/1) and Tottenham (12/1).

The former, of course, came close to signing Suarez in 2013 when they cheekily offered Liverpool £40m + £1 to meet the requirements of his release clause at Anfield.

Rumors have also suggested Juventus (11/1) and Paris Saint-Germain (5/1) are interested in Suarez. But should he fancy leaving Europe, the MLS (6/1) and Chinese Super League (7/1) are his most probable destinations.
