Denis' agent opens up on Suarez' future: 'It's complicated'
- The midfielder wants more playing time and could consider a move outside in January
- However, his representative remains pessimistic this transfer could be orchestrated in winter
- Denis is wanted by Milan and Chelsea
- The Italians could only sign him on a loan deal while the Blues are ready to pay 45 million euros
Denis Suarez is a lonely figure at Barcelona. He has only capped 100 minutes of the first-team action since the start of the 2018/2019 season and could reportedly consider a move outside already in winter. Moreover, two clubs have allegedly expressed their interest in landing the midfielder; these are Chelsea and AC Milan.
However, according to Denis Suarez's agent, Felix Gende, the 24-year-old could be forced to stay at the Camp Nou stadium until the rest of the 2018/2019 season. He believes it would be difficult to orchestrate this transfer during the winter's transfer window. Spanish sports portal Fichajes quote Denis' agent as saying:
'It's complicated to leave Barcelona in January, on loan or on a permanent basis. Marseille have never contacted us. The situation is difficult, but Denis has confidence in his means and can overturn the situation.'

Nevertheless, Denis is reported to be determined to pull off a move as he is eager to receive more playing time. Meanwhile, reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano believes Milan will only sign Denis if they fail to land their main transfer target, another Barcelona-bound player, Cesc Fabregas.
Moreover, Milan want to bring Denis only on a loan deal while Chelsea are reportedly in a slightly better position, according to the Daily Express. The Blues are ready to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis for a significant transfer fee of 45 million euros.
