Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez reportedly turned down the chance to move to Chelsea earlier in the summer, preferring to stay and fight for his place at the Camp Nou.
According to Spanish outlet El Partidazo de COPE, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri was eager to bring Denis Suarez to London, having previously failed to sign him while managing at Napoli.
However, the Blues’ advances were firmly rebuffed by the 24-year-old, who is reportedly hellbent on establishing himself as a star with the Catalan giants.
Suárez began his career in the Celta youth academy, before moving to Manchester City to continue his development. After failing to break into the star packed side, the tenacious midfielder then moved to Barcelona B, before impressing on loan at Sevilla. After a solid season with Villareal, Barcelona brought Suárez back in 2016.
